There are certainly more points in a review that speed in cutting and quality of the cut.
That depends on about 4 parameter, you can also describe:
- Weight of the spine
- Thickness of blade and how much set
- Pitch, Fleam and Rake (the last two can be easily changed, the first not)
- Hang of the handle
These parameter influence each other. A higher hang needs a leighter spine or more rake.
And there are more important parameter:
- Thicknes of the wood,
- Quality of the over al work
- Taper of the blade
- taper of the spine
- method of fixing spine and blade to each other
- wich finish and so on.
Isn't that what a review should do? Describe the details? Not only making a few cuts and say it saws well. Every saw that sells for more than the day wage of a worker should work extremly well.
