Victorian/Art Nouveau inspired woodworking hand saw
Being a woodworker and a steampunk illustrator (amongst other things), I really like to have tools that reflect my personal aesthetic. This saw was designed using a modern Disston blade, ground and altered to fit and flow with the custom tiger maple handle I created. It's crosscut and cuts like a dream with its japanese style teeth and feels marvelous in the hand. I don't mind the few nicks it gets in it over time as it all becomes history on the wood.
