The Spear and Jackson Tenon Saw No. 9540B review covers the Spear and Jackson saw made by Spear and Jackson.

The Spear & Jackson Brass Back Tenon Saw (9540B) is a traditional tenon saw with the traditional look and features.

The Spear & Jackson Tenon Saw is fitted with a wooden handle made from Beech giving a comfortable, tactile feel.

The handle is secured to the blade with the use of three brass nuts, one of which is faced with a medallion marked 'SJ' with the Crown logo above it.

The blade is made from hardened and tempered carbon steel which has been given 15 PPI (Points Per Inch).

The teeth employ a universal tooth setup allowing the saw to be used effectively along the grain (rip) and across the grain (crosscut).

The universal tooth setup is a good all-round tooth setup however it may be noted it may not necessarily be a master of one or the other.

The handle on this tenon saw is marked 'Spear & Jackson'. The blade on this saw is marked 'Spear & Jackson, Traditional Brass Back Tenon Saw 15PPI' and the Spear & Jackson website address.

The blade on this saw is 10 inch long and has 15ppi (points per inch). 15ppi gives a smooth cut.

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."
