The Baddest Axe…


Time waits for no man and it is just five weeks before the first New English Workshop Course begins at Warwickshire College with Chris Schwarz. We are proud that Mark Harrell of Bad Axe Tool Works has donated one of his finest sash saws to the Anarchist’s tool chest that Chris will make and will be auctioned off by David Stanley Auctions with proceeds going to the college.


We spoke with Mark who explained: ‘Excellence is not optional at Bad Axe. When you purchase one of our saws, you’ll take delivery on a traditional, hammer-set saw tailored to your personal aesthetic and tuned in conformance with your woodworking style. When nothing but the very best will do–we deliver’.


From looking at and taking a few test cuts with this beautiful sash saw it bears out every word of what Mark says. Just check out the gallery…then visit Bad Axe Tool Works to check out their fabulous range.

  1. Mark does make fantastic saws – I’ve got Bad Axe 10″ dovetail and a 12″ carcass saws (both recently reviewed on my blog) They are not only great tools but also great examples of craftsmanship in their own right.
