Detailed Description

Elkhead Tools Saw Handles

When we first saw a Knew Concepts fretsaw in action, we knew without a doubt that it was a very fine tool. We wondered though if many woodworkers would shell out $100 for a tool they've been used to buying for $15. Now after selling over 500 of the saws, that doubt has been erased.

The only complaint we ever recall receiving was that the appearance of the handle did not live up to the beauty of the saw. Now Elkhead Tools has created a remedy for that problem in the form of these beautiful handmade handles. Just like the saws, they are not cheap, but certainly some who own a Knew Concepts saw will want to retrofit with one of these handles.

Although the medium handle for the fretsaw is considered a standard size, many woodworkers prefer the heftier grip of the large size. The handle for the coping saw comes only in the large size.

Full installation instructions are included.


Elkhead Tool handles in no longer being manufactured in Cocobolo. From now on, all Elkhead tools handles will be made from Mesquite. If you want a cocobolo handle order it now before we run out.

Elkhead Tool's explanation of the change.

"As many of you know, Cocobolo has been placed on the CITES list, making it nearly impossible to import to the US. As supplies have dwindled, prices have risen dramatically. We have been forced to change the wood that we use for our handles, and have decided to use Mesquite from Texas. Mesquite is a hard wood with a nice rich color, interesting grain patterns, and figure."
