    A handsaw that has a reinforcement along its back edge

Wikipedia

  1. Backsaw

    A backsaw is any hand saw which has a stiffening rib on the edge opposite the cutting edge, enabling better control and more precise cutting than with other types of saws. Backsaws are normally used in woodworking for precise work, such as cutting dovetails, mitres, or tenons in cabinetry and joinery. Because of the stiffening rib, backsaws are limited in the depth to which they can cut. Backsaws usually have relatively closely spaced teeth, often with little or no set.

    A backsaw is a type of handsaw that has a reinforced upper edge, also known as the back of the saw, to keep the blade rigid during use. This design allows for more accurate cuts, especially in woodworking. Backsaws are typically shorter and smaller than other saws and are primarily used for precision work like cutting dovetails, miters, or tenons in cabinetry and furniture making.
