The Veritas Crosscut Carcass Saw is designed for cutting across the grain and the rip carcass saw is designed for cutting with the grain.
Carcass saws are good general-utility saws for cutting the typical joints used in cabinetry, trimming frame members to length, cutting small to medium-sized tenons, etc.
The Veritas saws combine the best characteristics of the classic fine joinery saw with those of state-of-the-art materials and construction methods. The tooth pattern on the thin high-carbon steel blade provides a good balance between cutting action and surface finish.
The pistol-grip design of the wooden handle makes it intuitive to hold the saw such that the index finger rests on the stainless-steel/glass/polymer composite spine, which provides strength and rigidity.
- Teeth have 0.003" of set per side
- Molded spine incorporates stainless-steel powder for weight, glass fiber for stiffness and advanced polymer binder
- Over-molded blade and stainless-steel handle-mounting bolt create solid one-piece blade/spine/mount assembly
- Single brass fastener secures hardwood handle
- Open-grip handle is larger than those of classic carcass saws; permits comfortable, secure grip
- High-carbon steel blade
