There are several reasons to buy a Veritas Rip Carcass Saw instead of another brand. First, the saw is well balanced and maneuverable, making it easy to use. Second, the teeth have a relatively minimal set, meaning that they will stay sharp longer. Finally, the saw is scaled for smaller work, making it a good choice for projects that require precision.
Veritas Rip Carcass Saw Features
The Veritas Rip Carcass Saw has a 12 TPI (teeth per inch) and a 10 degree rake angle. It also has an included angle of 60 degrees, making it efficient for cutting parallel to the grain. Additionally, the teeth have a relatively minimal set at only 0.003" per side. This makes the saw ideal for use in a wide variety of applications.
The Veritas Rip Carcass saw is designed for comfort and durability. The molded spine incorporates stainless-steel powder for weight, glass fiber for stiffness, and an advanced polymer binder. An over-molded blade and stainless-steel handle-mounting bolt create a solid blade/spine/mount assembly.
A single brass fastener secures the wallaba handle. The open-grip handle, made larger than those of classic carcass saws, permits a comfortable, secure grip. The high-carbon steel blade, 11" long and 0.02" thick, has a cut depth of about 2-3/8". Each saw is 16-3/8" long overall and weighs just under a pound.
