Description

Traditionally used for the rapid trimming of plugs and dowels flush with a surface, our flush-cutting saws can be used where you want to cut off a projection without damaging the surrounding or adjoining face. This is possible because the teeth are set one way only.

The 22 tpi Japanese tooth-pattern blade cuts aggressively (on the pull stroke), but does not mark the surface that it is cutting next to. The thin blade is flexible and can be pressed flush to any surface, yet is rigid enough for good control.

The saw is available with teeth cut on only one edge or in a double-edged style that cuts from either side. Each is about 11-1/2" long with 4-3/4" of blade.

WOOD magazine review

INEXPENSIVE FLUSH-CUTTERS TRIM CLEANLY AND QUICKLY

Review Summary

I love working wood with hand tools primarily, and the Veritas flush-cut handsaws see a lot of action in my shop. These value-priced saws deliver quick and accurate cuts without fuss. Who doesn’t want that? The double-edge saw has a one-way set in its teeth along both edges, meaning every other tooth protrudes slightly above the blade body. The back side has no set, letting you saw with it against project surfaces without marring the workpiece.
(A reminder on the blade indicates which side goes up.) The single-edge saw has no set in the teeth, so it can be used with either side held against your project without marring. It cuts slightly slower than the double-edge saw, but its narrow blade with rounded tip lets you reach into tighter areas for trimming. —Tested by Bill Damman

Single edge flush cut saw for plugs

Review Summary

I've used this single edge plug cutting saw for probably 20 years now and it has cut hundreds of hardwood plugs and has shown no signs of dulling. It's super flexible and cuts fast and smooth. It really is the right tool to use when flush cutting plugs as chisels and router bits tend to chip some of the plug out, which then requires some wood filler.
