    Aloha Monkeys,

    Found these 2 extras tucked away in the shop...

    These are awesome Made In the USA... Stiletto, high end awesome tool maker, Hand Saws in the traditional pattern but with the amazingly fast and efficient Japanese tooth pattern. both are unused... the shorter one was kept in my saw case.

    Don't go looking for these... as they are no longer being made.... amazing detail and craftsmanship on these saws... and are not offered on the Stiletto site...

    I have 5 of these and will tell you... I absolutely love them... much more rigid than the traditional thin Japanese saws... and I grew up using this shape of saw...

    Don't forget... high quality hand tools, that won't fail, will last, can be serviced or in this case sharpened and do the job efficiently... along with your other prep items are a very wise thing to have...

    These were $100 a piece... yes even the shorter one... $150 for both, shipped insured to the USA.

    Thanks for looking,

    Take Care and God Bless,

    Thanks @Tully Mars The really nice thing about these is that they leave a nice finished cut and that they cut on both the push and pull strokes... not your everyday big box hardware store hand saw... and not for everyone... quality, fit and finish on these justified the price but most folks don't appreciate the value of a really good hand saw... probably why they discontinued them... so sad that the imported stuff is forcing USA quality into extinction.... even with my Dewalt Chop, Skil worm drive, Porter Cable, Festool etc... power saws... I still use these more often.... and when the power goes off and the Li Ion is drained.. it still works 2-3 times faster, cleaner and with more control then a regular saw... Nothing like a beautiful tool that also performs beautifully eh? ;)
    Of course IMHO....

    Couldn't agree more @Bear. I have a lot of my Grandfather's tools, and while the hand saws are not in the same league as the above they are still much better than what you'll find @ Home Depot today. I don't know why,(as my trade is welding/steel fab) but I collect old wood planes. I love the things. I've got a few that are truly old and still work great!

    Never thought I would put a hand saw in the beautiful category, but these fit right in!
