Sawing is a technique that is used by all jewellers and is a fast and easy way to cut metal. It takes some practice to get it right, but once you have the technique mastered, you’ll be ready to create all kinds of jewellery. But choosing a saw blade is often the hardest part. Saw blades come in a wide range of sizes to accommodate different gauges of metal, the idea being that you change them regularly rather than sticking to just one. A saw cut is initiated from the edge of the metal or a carefully pre-drilled hole, although as you work your saw blade the requirements will alter. For example, sawing in a straight line requires a thicker blade than a curve, which it is better to use a finer blade for – so in time, quickly changing blades will become second nature to you. Are you wondering what size jeweller’s saw blade to use? Our jeweller’s saw blades sizing chart will help get you started.

The grade of a saw blade is determined by the amount of teeth it has per cm.

As a general rule, you are aiming to encompass two teeth of the blade within the thickness of your metal.
