The Knew Concepts Coping saw is the ultimate small-frame saw for woodworkers. Its robust construction is effortlessly light weight thanks to the truss frame design. Using the saw is a pleasure. Just like its smaller fret saw cousins, the Knew Concepts Coping saw uses a simple cam mechanism to provide repeatable tension, and fast blade changes.

Coping saws are so called, because they have historically been for cutting the cope, or matching fit, to a moulding. Now-a-days, we find them more likely to used for wasting dovetails, or for wasting on curved workpieces.

To our thinking, the Knew Concepts Fret Saw, brings the fret saw back inline with its current usage, as the wasting weapon of choice. The stiff frame, tensioning cam, and 360 degree rotating blade (with indexing) all add up to a substantially more robust platform than any other coping saw we know of.

The Knew Concepts Fret Saw is simply impressive, and looks poised to dictate the rules of the game for any one attempting to dethrone it as the worlds best coping saw… even if you never cut a single cope!

The Knew Concepts Coping saw accepts standard 6 ½” Pinned blades.

Knew Concepts saws are made in USA.

Fret Saws use an exceptionally thin blade clamped at the ends and held in place via friction. Because the blade doesn’t use pins to hold it in place, it can be quite thin, and for this reason, a fret saw, with the right blade, can quite nearly pivot in place. For pierced screens, or other intricate work where precision is prized over speed a fret saw is the way to go. Knew Concepts fret saws, have a blade tension mechanism that is indexed to rotate 45 degrees in either direction.

In contemporary woodworking, the coping saw has largely outgrown its namesake and is more often used as a tool for wasting joinery, or shaping a workpiece. The pinned blade of a coping saw is substantially thicker and taller than a fret saw blade. Coping Saw blades cut an arc (albeit a very small one) rather than pivot. The larger thicker blades of the coping saw, are more durable, and less prone to breaking than fret saw blades. If you will primarily use your saw for joinery and wasting buy a coping saw. Knew Concepts coping saws have a blade tension mechanism that is indexed every 45 degreees, and may rotate a full 360 degrees.
