The saw has a 275mm (11") long by 0.5mm thick high-carbon steel blade filed crosscut at 14tpi. The teeth have a rake angle of 15°, an included angle of 60° with alternate 15° bevels to efficiently sever wood fibres rather than tear. The depth of cut is 60mm. The back of this saw is injection moulded under high pressure onto the blade and stainless-steel handle-mounting bolt. This forms a solid one-piece blade/spine/mount assembly. The material used for the back incorporates stainless-steel powder for weight, glass fibre for stiffness, and a polymer resin binder. A brass nut fastener secures the comfortably shaped Bubinga handle. The saw has great balance it cuts easily, stays true and the grip makes for a comfortable and secure grip. Overall length 415mm (16.1/4")

Best small cross cut saw I have triedGreat saw. Have only tried it out doing test cuts on oak. Excellent balance, fine cut and easy to control. As I have extremely large hands I find the handle a bit tight, most people would not have this problem. Really impressed with the saw. Have a number of oak doors to make will see how it lasts.

Good saw but...A good saw, but the handle wasn't fitted tight. Not only was the screw / bolt loose but it had two pieces of "sticky fixer" pad between the handle and the back/handle piece. This not only made the handle loose, but it also wobbled in use.
