When you want to make cuts, especially in wood, you should make use of the saw. It is a tool that has a toothed and trapezoidal blade and is handled with a wooden or plastic handle that is located at the widest end of the edge and has the proper shape for proper handling.
The traditional shape of the handle is that of a ring, which is easily molded by hand. The cutting blade is wide in the grip, and as it advances, it becomes thinner, with the same size of teeth from beginning to end.

The primary purpose is the cutting of wood and in some cases other materials. The higher the number of teeth per centimeter, the more delicate the cut will be, although it will take longer to make it. The choice of these characteristics will be according to the type of cut to be made.
Each type of saw has a specific use, depending on the depth and variety of cut desired. For example, the rib saw cannot make cuts as deep as the other two types.
