The 10 Inch blade has a depth of 61mm (2 3/8 inch), the 12 and 14 Inch blades have a depth of 79mm (3 1/8 inch).

The tenon saws are made with a choice of two teeth type:

The rip teeth are specialised for cutting with the grain and the crosscut teeth are specialised for cutting across the grain.

These saws have 13 tpi (teeth per inch), with hand sharpened teeth which can be resharpened again and again for a long life.

The blade has a Lynx brand laser etching with the markings: 'E.Garlick & Son, Sawmakers, For Over A Centruy, Lynx Brand, Lynx, Made In Sheffield, England'.

The saw blades have a nice weighted brass back spine which offers extra control, tension and purchase while offering an added attractive appearance.

The brass backed spine has a beautiful mirrored finish which adds to the beauty of this saw.

This Lynx tenon saw is fitted with a comfortably shaped American Black Walnut handle which is finished with Danish Oil.

The handle is secured to the blade using three traditional brass split-nut buttons which sit flush with the handle.

Note: Should it be needed at any point, split-nuts require a special split-nut screwdriver to make adjustments to them (or the very careful use of two small flat-head screwdrivers at the same time).

This saw will be one which will be wanted to use again and again and will be handed down to many generations to come.

This Lynx tenon saw is usually presented in a Lynx brown cardboard box with green writing on.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
