Don’t let a dull saw blade keep you from processing with ease. We offer standard sized blades with 1/2″ wide (10 teeth per inch) to provide easy cutting action. Step it up a notch with our 1″ wide blades (10 teeth per inch), perfect for carcass and bone splitting. These replacement blades are designed to fit our Meat Hand Saws.
Apply pressure on forward cutting stroke only. Relax pressure as you drag saw back for next cut. Dragging teeth backward under pressure will dull blade fast.
Keep control, let the saw cut don’t force it. Too much pressure on ends of the saw will flex blade, resulting in short blade life along with tiring operator.
About one stroke per second is top speed.
With proper technique, speed, & pressure a person can saw all day long without tiring or breathing hard.
Pick a blade (teeth per inch) so at least two teeth are in contact with work at all times. This prevents catching a single tooth tearing it off the blade.
Never put a new blade into an existing cut. Flip the work over and start a new cut opposite the first cut. A worn blade makes a narrower cut than a new blade. Placing a new blade into the old cut will ruin the “set” on a new blade during the first few strokes.
