Welcome to The Saw Blog!

Greetings! Thank you for visiting the Saw Blog! This blog is indeed dedicated to my love of hand saws and woodworking. My name is Matt Cianci, and I’ve been collecting, restoring and using antique tools for a few years and for some reason, nothing speaks to me the way old spring steel does….I guess it just sings to me! So what better way to share my love of saws then in a blog for the whole world to see!

If you’ve never used a well tuned hand saw then you are truly missing out on one of woodworkings greatest pleasures…it is, as Chris Schwartz likes to say, ‘Zen-like’! And that’s what my blog is all about…the use, care and culture of hand saws and sawing. I blog about finding old saws and restoring them, using hand saws of all kinds, the history of saws, smithing, sharpening and other lost saw skills, and the techniques long faded from woodworking with hand saws.

If you are a woodworker like me, then I am honored you have choosen to visit my humble blog. If you be a layman, and unfamiliar with this craft, then I am equally honored and hope you find it informative and fun. I am very fond of the community of woodworkers across the world and have found that woodworkers and antique tool nuts like myself are the most kind and generous people you will ever meet. This blog is committed to promoting and preserving this culture of inclusion, friendship and the joy of our craft.

However you have found this place, and from wherever you have come, I am happy it has lead you here. Feel free to stay as long as you like and return often. If you are so inclined feel free as well to comment, leave questions, or email me directly at:


God bless and be well!
Matt Cianci

  1. Matt,
    Very interesting! Do you sharpen others’ handsaws? I have a 50s or 60s era Craftsman handsaw of my wife’s grandfather. I need a cross cut panel saw to start my Galoot lifestyle. Do you offer sharpening for others? Let me know. Greg
