Lately been using a Crown Gents Saw with a shop made handle copied from the
Gramercy, works just fine.

Yeah I think I have seen Paul Sellers use that same saw. But of course he resharpens and sets all the teeth to his liking and tunes it. (similar Amazon reviews of similar saws of people tuning them)As I am still learning to use these saws, I would prefer something out of the box to use. Maybe down the road I will learn to tune and sharpen etc. Thought that crown gents saw is one they actually have at my local hardware store for about $25.


The only thing I have done to the Crown blades is a light stoning to smooth out the cut, amazing difference in cut quality! I did make 2 different handle with different attack angles, makes a big difference in regards to bench height or if you are standing or sitting! For the price I can see myself practicing sharpening skills on these blades.
