Garrett Wade Japanese saw tool giveaway!

We’re thrilled that Garrett Wade has offered to give away several of their tools to MAKE readers. We’re giving away the lovely set of four Japanese pullsaws that Bill Gurstelle reviewed in his Dangerous Giving gift guide. We know that at least some of you have a thing for these saws (they appeared on several of our readers’ wish lists). We definitely covet them! We’re also giving away, to a runner up, one of the 9-1/2″ Ryoba saws (the two-bladed saw in the above picture). The four-saw set includes the Ryoba, a 6″ blade flush cutting saw, a 7″ long dovetail saw, and a detail trim saw.

To be eligible, all you have to do is leave a comment below. Tell us what you plan to do with these saws. Eligible comments will close at 10:30am PST tomorrow (12/11) and we’ll announce our two winners shortly after that. Good luck!
