Handsaws for Woodworking

Quality Woodworking Hand Saws

When a woodworking hand saw works as it should, it almost feels as if it’s an extension of your body, working naturally as it glides back and forth. Thankfully, at Garrett Wade, we have budget-friendly carpentry hand saws that will fit the bill.

Garrett Wade has partnered with some of the premier blade makers in both Japan and the United States. This allows us the opportunity to provide our customers with some of the finest hand saws and rasps available on the market. Whatever you’re tinkering with in your workshop, our selection of high-quality hand saws is certain to help you to complete your job quickly and easily.

Exceptional Woodworking Hand Saws

Japanese Hand Saws: The carpentry hand saw can be one of the most versatile tools in your workshop. It’s easy to use and can save you a lot of time whentrimming tails and fitting joints. We have personally tested each of these saws by putting them through their paces to ensure the highest quality and precision for our customers.

Dovetail Backsaws: Another Japanese construction, these woodworking hand saws allow for precision applications, such as cutting joints and dovetails.

Log Saws: Longer-length blades are perfect for cutting both dry and wet wood. Log saws that are smaller in size are more ideal for single-person operation compared with their larger counterparts.

Time-Honored Craftsmanship

At Garrett Wade, time-tested design and quality construction make for tools that you can expect to pass on for generations. Our tools save time and effort on tasks (e.g., expect less bending over and easier cuts).

We travel all over the world to find the best tools for any woodworking job. From the Japanese Dovetail Dozuki Saw to the USA-made Two Fantastic Woodworking Saws, we have everything you might need for precision cutting in your next woodworking project.

What are the best woodworking hand saws to choose if you are a woodworking newbie?
If you’re new to the woodworking field, consider purchasing a Japanese dovetail dozuki saw. This sharp saw features a stiffer, smaller blade than traditional dozuki hand saws do, so they are perfect for cutting very delicate dovetails and small joints. Plus, you can easily replace the blade.

What is the most versatile carpentry hand saw?
For versatility, you can’t go wrong with Japanese Ryoba woodworking hand saws. With teeth on both of the blade’s edges, you can use one side to perform rip cuts and the other for crosscutting.

In what situations should you use a tenon saw?
Use a tenon saw to easily cut through wood grain and make various furniture shapes (including squares or circles). This saw is also handy for cutting mortise and tenon joints.
