Vaughan Bear Saws are made to cut on the pull rather than the push stroke. This allows for a thinner blade, which removes less material, making sawing easier, faster and more accurate. Bear saw blades are durable spring steel, plated for rust resistance. The specially ground, tri-edge teeth are impulse hardened to retain their sharpness. Interchangeable blade styles match any task, from rough cuts to fine woodworking: any blade can be used with either handle. Blades lock securely into the handle, yet the saw can be quickly disassembled for convenient toolbox storage.
