So what happens when your woodsaw goes dull?
« on: September 19, 2009, 07:44:10 AM »
I was just thinking about how most of the time 'knife people' prefer plain edges because they are easier to sharpen then serrated edges. So what about the wood saw on some SAK models? While I generally can sharpen serrated edges ok with a sharpmaker, I have no idea how to go about sharpening a wood saw. I do use mine regularly, so what happens when it becomes dull?

Notice how the spine of wood saw is thinner than teeth. Lay it flat on a stone (make sure stone really is FLAT), sharpen it edge trailing, and do both sides.

Or you can get a small diamond file and do it tooth by tooth, either way works.

I've yet to have to do it, but that's the method I'd use to :)

Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

I'm not a big saw user but I do use them from time to time and my oldest SAK which is 19 years old ( Huntsman) and heavily used still doesn't need its saw sharpened .I suppose it depends on what youve been cutting  :think: I've only ever used mine on wood .

It may just be my opinion but if you're sawing so much that it dulls the sawblade you should carry a dedicated saw.

Yup, that's what I was going to say.  I see the tools on a SAK as a convenience, not as something I intend to use everyday.

Using a stone or diamond files would work though for the saw.
