Folded Saw Backs


For a long time the only type of saw backs that were available to the saw making community were machined ones. While they do work, we here at TGIAG prefer the more traditional folded saw backs. Folded backs are made from a piece of steel or brass that is formed and "folded" into a pinched U-Shape. This shape grips and add tension to the saw plate. In our honest opinion it is a more secure method and it easily re-postionable.

Over the past two years Mike and I have been working at developing the dies that would give us that classic shape. After months and months of efforts we arrived at the final design.

So as you can guess we are now extremely proud to offer our new line of Folded Saw Backs.


These are made to our exacting standards and folded using our specially designed dies. The overall shape and finish are reminiscent of early Sorby or British saws with a dash of old school
brass Disston saw backs for flare.

We are currently selling them in (6) different lengths
