Pearl & Abalone Saw

This is a real time saver tool! A great little saw for fine and precise inlay cutting. It does a great job of getting into those tight spots for really intricate designs. You must use patience with it though, because the blades are very delicate and break easily. I use this saw exclusively for my inlays. JC

the best I ever had

sounds like a "the Who" song. but it's the truth. easy fitting of saw blades, perfect trim on the blade, makes it to "ting ting". Easy handling,perfect grip. fast shipping by the way...only two days to europe ....waauw . stephan antwerp-Belgium

Great little saw

This is a great little saw for the fine inlay work. It loads easily with blades which is good 'cause I go through lots of them. The ergonomics are very good for precise cutting: "leave only half of the black line showing".

Perfect Saw For The Job

The saw worked very well. Light weight & easy to handle. The blades are certainly "fine"(as in very small) but easy to use. The pearl is uniform in thickness & cuts well.

This is the saw to buy

This is a very well-made tool, perfect for the job of cutting pearl. In my opinion the flex-frame design is superior to the slide-and-tighten type of frame, making blade tensioning easy and fast. I also love the size, weight, and balance of this saw.

Good Blades

I have purchased a few packs of these blades and they cut well and hold up well for me also.

Perfect for the job

My saw arrived with some surface rust but this was easily cleaned off, make sure you buy plenty of blades as they break very easily.
