Hum . . .
Maybe you should try sawing dead Australian wattle (esp A parramattensis). A very good way to damage the teeth on any steel saw. Me, I use carbide on it whenever I can.
It all depends on the timber.

High visibility grip per customer request. The bright Plasti-Dip colors are almost translucent and require 10 spray coatings instead of the usual 3.Apr 9, 2022 at 10:22 pm #3745808Earl GBPL Member
Hi David, are you still selling these saws, and if so, has anything changed (price, weight, etc)? Also, is the high vis orange extra?
Thanks!Apr 10, 2022 at 9:09 pm #3745929
I am. The weights are +/- 0.1 oz. Weight also depends on grip choice, with the lightest option being Plasti-Dip on steel, then basswood, then cork. Hi viz Blaze orange is not extra, it’s just one of many choices.
Oh, I just made one with a neoprene grip and it’s awesome. Very comfortable:
