This Two Cherries™ veneer saw (Model 520-2200) could be one of the most affordable and practical tools in your shop. If you're doing any veneer work, this is one item that pays for itself over and over again. I have to admit that I really like this saw and judging by the reviews I've seen online, so do a lot of other woodworkers.
With 18 very fine teeth per inch, this saw cuts with precision accuracy. It has the "ramp" tooth grind that cuts on the pull stroke. This is the ideal grind pattern because it makes an aggressive but clean cut each time.
Though I am a "lefty" and these saws are designed for right handed people, I've had no trouble using the saw with my right hand. I use my left hand to hold the straightedge down and my right hand to saw. As long as the saw is sharp, you won't need to apply much pressure to cut the veneers cleanly.
Made in Germany.
If you select this option, I will hand-sharpen both sides of the blade for a thin, true and laser-like cut. I absolutely guarantee that you will cut exceptional seams with this saw using the right technique. You can find more information regarding the sharpening process by clicking here.
Veneer saws purchased with "pre-sharpened" option will also receive a cotton drawstring storage bag.

Why are the saws not sharpened from the factory?
The manufacturer says these are already sharp enough for cutting veneer. I completely disagree and that is why we offer them with our own hand sharpening.
