Veritas Crosscut Carcass Saw, 14 TPI
Veritas has merged modern materials and traditional design to create this well balanced, excellent cutting carcass saw. As you can tell from the name, carcass saws are used to cut furniture carcass pieces and elements of the framework such as joints in drawer runners, dividers, and stretchers. Not quite as beefy as a tenon saw, the Veritas Carcass Saw is scaled for smaller work than a tenon saw, yet maneuverable enough to cut dovetails.
The 11” (280 mm) high-carbon steel blade has crosscut configured teeth @ 14 tpi, with a rake angle of 15° (included angle of 60°). The blade's spine is made from high-pressure injected molded resin, with stainless steel powder & glass fibre, resulting in a strong and stiff backer that keeps the blade straight & true. Patterned from antique saws with elegantly curved handles, the saw's solid Bubinga (African Rosewood) handle nestles into your hand to give you exceptional cutting control. Depth of cut is 2-3/8”(60 mm).
Overall length is 16-3/8” (416 mm).
