Jon,

This is a mystical topic only for the bold. I have played with the LN saws and some Wenzloff saws while attending Woodworking in America conferences, but no serious amount of work. All of my hand saws are vintage saws either Disstons, Atkins, or Simonds. Like you I was a little confused by all the ephemera of hand saws and not sure I wanted to do all the tuning necessary. Enter Bad Axe Toolworks. Mark Harrell at Bad Axe not only make new backsaws, but he is an expert at restoring old saws. I recently sent a bunch of saws to him and had him tune them up like new. I wrote a review about it on my own blog and you can read it here. Also check out Mark's facebook page where he has a saw discussion going on that goes into what types of saws will make up your nest. Ultimately you need to spend some time thinking about what type of work you will do to figure out the pitch and geometry of saws you will need most. Good luck and let me know if you have additional questions.
