If there is any remaining question in the hand-tool world regarding the all-around capabilities of carcase saws, Mark Harrell has offered a definitive answer with the introduction of the new 14″ Bayonet Precision Carcase Saw from Bad Axe Tool Works.

The Bayonet is both fast and deadly accurate. With the recommended 14 ppi hybrid tooth filing, it outpaced similarly appointed saws on cuts across the grain and handled rip cuts on small tenon cheeks with aplomb. All of this comes courtesy of a 14″ long, .018″-thick plate that enables more time in the cut per stroke, encouraging both accuracy and efficiency. The extra length will span a standard carcase side with ease and, while not intended for heavy work, with just more than 2″ of usable plate depth, this saw is ideal for all routine joinery tasks.
