The goal in every restoration I do is to bring back the beauty in direct proportion to its overall condition. It’s a matter of aesthetics to me; polished saw screws on a handle that’s been sanded down to remove every imperfection is like lipstick on a pig. Also note that I offer a wider variety of makes, models. Not just Dissto. So email me if you’re looking for a maker not listed. When it comes to backsaws I offer services most don’t bother or can’t. I stock, cut and tooth most plates for common backsaw sizes.

My sharpening process is time consuming and done 100% by hand unless noted; Exceptions are retoothing of new plates on backsaws. Regardless of the machine, this process is also very time consuming as well. I also cut and tooth my own plate for backsaws, something most can’t and don’t bother to offer. Each saw is jointed, shaped, set, sharpened, stoned, and then tested on both medium and hard woods. Adjustments are then made as needed.

My guarantee is simple. I stand behind ANYTHING I sell, or service I do. If you're not happy with a saw or feel it’s not properly sharpened send it back or email me for a full refund.
