Saw Blades

At Knew Concepts, our primary business is making the best saws on Earth. For those saws to work at their best, we need the best sawblades we can find. Over the years, we have developed connections with the world’s leading sawblade manufacturers, in Switzerland and Germany. We make sure the blades we load into our saws before they ship are the best we can possibly find, which means that we keep a limited supply of blades on hand for our needs in making the saws. After much not-so-gentle persuasion, we have decided to begin selling those blades directly.

There are dozens of types of sawblades, in hundreds of sizes. We’d go crazy trying to stock them all. Frankly, there are blade retailers that do a better job of that than we would. We make saws. So this will always be a selection limited to blades we keep in stock for our own needs, or blades that are unique and hard to find otherwise. These are all blades that we use personally, for our own projects.

A note about sawblade sizes: The coping saw requires 6.5" pinned end blades, and will not accept fret saw blades. Jeweler’s saws and fret saws are the same thing, just called by different names. All of the Knew Concepts fret/jeweler’s saws require 5.125" (130mm) plain end blades, and will accept either woodworking or jeweler’s grades. The only real difference between wood and metal blades at that size is thickness and number of teeth per inch. The saws themselves don’t care.

One Dozen Pegas #7 Skip Tooth Fret/Jewelers Saw Blades.

These are the blades that the saws are coming pre-loaded with. The best general purpose delicate woodworking blades we’ve found. Aggressive enough to cut out dovetail waste quickly, but delicate enough to turn tight corners.

For jewelers, ignore the package saying “wood”. They make outstanding blades for hard carving wax. Vastly superior to the old spiral blades, these will actually cut a straight line, and go where you point them.

Made in Switzerland. The teeth are machine filed, rather than punched, resulting in a sharper edge.

One Dozen Herkules 10/0 Jewelers Saw Blades.

The finest, most delicate saw blades made. Most jeweler’s supply houses don’t stock blades smaller than 8/0, because traditional jeweler’s saws have trouble properly tensioning such delicate blades. Knew Concepts saws have the most controllable tensioning mechanisms on any jeweler’s saw made. Since our saws are the first to really be able to take advantage of the 10/0 blades, it seemed like a natural fit to start carrying them. For a sense of scale, they’re roughly twice as thick as a human hair. With teeth.

For the jewelers: These are the most delicate blades you will ever see, which means you need to tension them carefully, or they will snap, even on our saws. If you have a saw with lever tensioning, some of our users have reported having better luck by leaving the lever in the ‘tight’ position, and tensioning the blade by way of rotating the brass adjustment knob until satisfied with the ‘ping’. After you get a sense of what they’ll take, then experiment with using the lever. Remember to unwind the tension knob when loading a new blade. Titanium saws use them to best advantage because of their extra rigidity, but that means that Ti saw owners must be doubly careful when tensioning them, because the Ti saws are so much stiffer.

For the woodworkers: These are not the saw blades you were looking for. Trust us on this. That said, they’d do amazing things on boulle inlay. Just very, very slowly.

Made in Germany. The teeth are machine filed, rather than punched, resulting in a sharper edge.
