Custom “Melancholia” saw

ImageThis is just a couple of photos of a custom saw, based on the saw pictured in Albrecht Durer’s “Melancholia” print. The handle is lilac wood, with a brass bolster that I turned free-hand, and filed to shape. The teeth are progressive, 10 ppi at the toe to 8 ppi at the heel, the blade is lightly colored, for a more antique look.

ImageA fun, “Medievalish” saw to make, (that’s a word right?), a difficult blade to cut teeth into, overall a great project-
