At the recent Northern Woodworking and Power Tool show in Harrogate Shane Skelton of Skelton Saws came to my stand to show me his new dovetail saw.
The 10” dovetail saw has 15 tpi rip cut teeth with a canted blade (slightly narrower at the front than the back) and a very fine rosewood handle (which Shane assured me was from sustainable sources). Shane Skelton of Skelton Saws will be demonstrating saw sharpening techniques on the Chris Tribe Furniture Courses stand at the forthcoming woodworking exhibition at Harrogate.
Shane has taken the bold step of setting up as the only handmade saw maker in the UK, challenging the US dominance in the market.


The saw had a nice balance and trying it out on a piece of sycamore proved that the cut was quick and fine. I have large hands and the handle seemed just a little small, however I’m sure this was something I could get used to. I thought that the 15 tpi would mean the starting cut would be difficult however this was not the case, a testament to Shanes fine hand filing. Unfortunately my other niggle is that at ?245 I can’t afford this lovely tool, I’m just a poor furniture maker!


The saw had a similar feel to a Gramercy dovetail saw belonging to a former American student of mine, strange, as the Gramercy has much finer teeth. The saw also looks good with a beautifully hand shaped handle and fine detailing round the brass back.
