    I am having a hard time finding Spear & Jackson saws in the US. The distributors I’ve contacted have a lot of Spear & Jackson garden supplies, but they don’t seem to carry the saws. Can you help?

    1. Hi Mark,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      We are looking to add tools available in the US in the future, however we want to order the tools ourselves to test out quality first.
      This is something we are looking forward to adding to the site.

      Thanks,
      Izzy

      5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent value for one purchasing from the USA

      Verified Purchase
      I am in the USA and purchased this saw from Amazon UK because the price was a fraction of what it would be in the USA. Shipping was inexpensive and prompt…

      Hope this helps,

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for your questions, I passed it on to Paul and his answer is below:
      Personally, I reach for a gents saw for all my dovetailing because I feel it is the most efficient cut with the inline handle directly behind the spine.

      Kind Regards,
      Izzy

  2. Good afternoon,
    I was wondering what combination of saws Paul recommends for starting out. Was thinking a 2 panel saws(one for rip, one for crosscut), a carcass saw, a dove tail saw, and a gents saw. Is this a good combination?
