In 1776, when America was still a British Colony and Thomas Chippendale Senior was still accepting commissions for his exquisite furniture, another Yorkshire born Thomas - Thomas Sanderson of Attercliffe near Sheffield, set about making the first ever Pax handsaw.

Today’s Pax 1776 Saw is a faithful reproduction, with a handcrafted maple handle secured with a pair of brass split nuts, hand filed teeth and a hand polished folded brass spine. Flamboyant blade etchings didn’t come along until the 19th century so there’s just a quietly understated engraving on the spine to tell you what it is and where it comes from.
  • This 20tpi, cross-cut filed, dovetail saw starts effortlessly, tracks beautifully and leaves an impressively narrow 0,8mm kerf (a perfect slip fit for a 0,6mm cabinet scraper if you are cutting half blind dovetails)
  • The Pax 1776 Saw is undoubtably Thomas Flinn’s finest hand saw  
  • Made with a heavily folded brass back roll marked with "Pax 1776 Sheffield England", it is made as a celebration piece commemorating the start of Pax saws and they are made today to the same high standards that they were two hundred years ago
  • With a blade length of 10" (254mm) and a blade depth of 2" (52mm), this hand saw is the ultimate in beauty and also in it’s unrivalled performance


  • Hand finished Pistol Grip Maple Handle, Danish Oiled for ultimate tactile comfort
  • Solid Brass Screws and Caps
  • Mirror Finished Brass Back with traditional style roll mark "PAX 1776"
  • Hand Sharpened
