Our Curly Maple handles (Saws, Screwdrivers, etc.) will soon have a new, improved finish,
developed to bring out the natural figure of the wood, without stain,
and with a protective top coat, hand buffed to a smooth lustrous finish.
Beginning on Friday, February 7, 2020, all new orders for Saws will receive the improved finish.
*Please note that our Curly Maple handles have natural color and figure variations in the wood grain.
Our Saws are exceptionally accurate, beautiful, and perfectly set for the jobs for which they are designed.
Saw blades are made from polished Swedish Steel and tempered to Rockwell 52 for durability and ease of sharpening. We take care to make sure our saw blades are properly sharpened and accurately set. Saw teeth have a minimum set that prevents binding while ensuring straight cuts. Solid, precision-milled Brass backs stiffen the blade and add weight for well-balanced, smooth cutting. We carefully hand shape and finish each Curly Maple handle for a comfortable, silky-smooth grip.
Each Lie-Nielsen Saw is precision hand-filed, set, and test cut in hardwood before it leaves our shop.
