Sharpen a SAK wood saw?
« on: September 02, 2016, 01:49:06 AM »
 ???  I have a Huntsman, probably never need the wood saw, on standby, used once a year?!?  I was wondering if it could be sharpened if used alot? Mod it? Buy a whole new SAK ?   
Newbie thanks you....

Sure, put it in a vise and sharpen each tooth with a small, triangular, file.

I think the SAK saw is good enough to where it will never need to be sharpened. I have a more than 40 year old Craftsman and the saw on it is just as good as my 10 year old Fieldmaster, whose saw was likely the second most used tool (first being the Phillips) not counting blades.

Yes very same principle :tu: You have to have an extra extra small sized file I think  :think: Yes they do have that size ;) Best not to let it get to dull before sharpening that way you can run the file at the correct angle to sharpen :cheers: You have to only push not pull the file through each tooth both directions of each tooth but you will get a feel for it after a few teeth and know what I am talking about :D Might be best to practice on a bigger carpenter hand saw as a SAK or MT saw is pretty small and a bit tedious :ahhh Good luck if you decide to try it :tu:

But as was also said above there might not never be a need to sharpen one but it is good to have the know how just in case :salute:

I use SPYDERCO ceramic triangle SHARPMAKER rods..(if i can feel a bur =  few strops on brown MED then a few strops on the white FINE - if just a touch up cuz i cut a branch - only FINE) ........ come in several grits from ultra fine to coarse to diamond.
I do NOT do between teeth on saw,ONLY CUZ I have never needed too  :D  :tu: ....that's me PERSONALLY  :2tu: ........I have only stropped the sides ( to get any burs knocked off) and have never ever had an issue with a real bent,burred,sharpened down, or a dull saw.

I would  ??? GUESS  ??? that if I had ever received a dull/burred/abused saw in a knife , I would atleast try to go between teeth.  :tu:  :whistle: :D


P.S.
If you free hand sharpen, You can buy these stones separate at a decent price used on the Bay, And dont need the whole kit/sharp maker.
I could do with just 1 brown/Med. & 1 white/Fine , and never have a issue , unless I needed to re-profile a damaged blade.  :tu: :cheers:
