Our most efficient saw for fret slots! Handmade, each saw cuts on the pull-stroke. This traditional design reduces blade flex and jamming as you saw the slot. Has a rigid nickel-plated brass spine and comfortable traditional bamboo handle.

A StewMac exclusive: The craftsmanship and efficiency of traditional handmade Japanese woodworking saws are legendary. We are pleased to offer a unique example made specifically for cutting fret slots, complete with easy depth-of-cut adjustment. This is our smoothest, most efficient handsaw for fret work—it cuts FAST!

TIP: The blade features extremely sharp teeth, with precise .023" kerf to match our fretwire. Because it cuts faster than a standard fret saw, it must be held perpendicular to the fretboard. If not, you can quickly cut a wider slot than you expect. We recommend a miter box for keeping the saw in proper alignment.


  • Overall length 19-3/4" (501.65mm)
  • Cutting length 9-3/4" (247.65mm)
  • Blade depth 1-3/4" (44.45mm)

Cut accurate 90-degree fret slots when you use the saw with our Fret Slotting Miter Box (sold separately). Add a Fret Scale Template and you'll never miscalculate your fret positions.

There is no depth stop included with this saw.
