silky saw: medium vs. fine teeth. | BladeForums- best finish hand saw for wood cutting silky wood ,9/5/2016· I always go with the medium teeth, I don't like the fine tooth and the large, when not cutting big wood tends to skip and those teeth are sharp and have caused injury. silky makes the best hand saws bar none.
