Veritas Gents SawsGent's tools were originally developed for “gentleman's” tool kits, intended for those who wanted good-quality tools for occasional work, but didn't need full-size equipment.
Sharing the same advanced materials as our dovetail and carcass saws, our gent's saws have a 7-7/8" long high-carbon steel blade that is just 0.015" thick with 0.003" of teeth set per side. The 20 tpi rip saw has teeth with a 14° rake angle and a 60° included angle. The teeth on the 22 tpi crosscut saw have a rake angle of 15°, an included angle of 60° and have been filed with alternating 15° bevel angles so that they sever rather than tear wood fibers.
Both saws have a cut depth of 1-5/8". For strength and rigidity, the glass and stainless steel-filled polymer spine is molded over the blade and handle stud. The 4-1/4" long bubinga handle is secured with a brass nut.
