Product Reference: LN-SAW-Tapered-CS
Lie-Nielsen have redesigned their three most popular back saws to feature a slight tapering of the blade from toe to heel. This taper gives you better control over precise cuts. When you reach the gauge line on the front of your stock, the blade is slightly above the line on the back side, which reduces the risk of sawing past your line. In addition, the taper introduces an angled approach to your stock (when holding the saw back parallel to the bench), enabling faster cuts with less effort.
The Lie-Nielsen Tapered Carcass Saw is patterned after their 14" Carcass Saw with a thinner plate of .015".
It tapers ¼" along the length of the blade, with a cutting depth of 2" at the toe and 2-1/4" at the heel. This combination of features yields a well-balanced saw that cuts extremely fast and precisely, with excellent surface finish.
Teeth are filed crosscut, 14 ppi, set at .003" per side.
Overall length, including handle, is 19".
Overall height is 5".
