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 13tpi, rip filed, dovetail variant 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)
  • A fine tool that no Gentleman Cabinetmaker’s toolkit should be without
