Weston Butcher Saw Design & Materials
Weston manual saw features a rather rudimentary no-frills design geared toward simplicity and performance. The high-impact handle provides a lot of driving power without too much effort, so you will not have any problems chewing through even the toughest of bones.
The blade is specifically created to cut through meat and bones. Unlike with hacksaws, its teeth are angled more sharply and designed not to get clogged by meat fibers, sinews, and fat. The teeth also cut right through bones rather than causing them to splinter. In other words, this butchering saw slices meat while avoiding any abrading or ripping actions. Note that meat saws cannot cut in both directions.
The saw frame is entirely made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and can be ordered in three different sizes as to accommodate 16, 22 or 25-inch blades. The trigger lock maintains blade tension at all times, which also allows for easy blade replacement. The weight of the saw is 2.9 pounds.
Weston Butcher Saw Performance
Weston Butcher Saw can cut through pretty much anything, from thick chest bones to a frozen pork rib rack, making it ideal for people who want to prepare their own meat. Even if you have never used a similar saw before, with this surgically precise butcher tool, you will not get sloppy cuts or meat filled with bone splinters.
The handle allows for a huge transfer of force and provides users with a comfortable, safe, and firm grip. With proper use, a single blade can last for years. Basically, you will only have to replace it if you break it, which is highly unlikely.
Since it can be removed and put back in its frame in mere seconds, the blade is incredibly easy to clean and maintain.
