This is a nice rip saw for the money. Despite the product description, the teeth on mine were poorly sharpened and it did not cut well initially. Luckily rip saw teeth are easy to sharpen with a small triangle file- if you can tie your shoes you can probably handle it. After 4 licks on each tooth with the file it cut quite well; fast and straight with good tracking. The set of the teeth is fairly wide, but could be reset by the user if desired. I have ripped some pieces of pine and tulip and was very happy with the results.

The beech handle on mine happened to be quartersawn and has some gorgeous ray fleck. The handle is a bit blocky with some hard edges, and was coated with a matte finish. The teeth are not induction hardened (like most saws at the big box stores are), so they can be resharpened. At 7 tpi this is a relatively fine rip saw, more suited for sawing prepared boards to width than re-sawing large amounts of thicker lumber into boards. The big rip teeth are a little harder to start than with a finer cross cut saw, but that is just the nature of this type of saw- not a design flaw.

Summary: If you don't mind taking ~10-15 minutes to (re)sharpen it, this saw is a great deal. Don't be afraid to try, this was my first go at sharpening and it came out great! If you are just looking for a rip saw that will work if the electricity goes out, don't want to spend over $100 on a finer quality new saw, or gamble on a vintage saw, this may be the one for you.

Having read the two previous reviews, I decided to sharpen this saw upon arrival Therefore I did not try it as sharpened by the factory. Ten minutes or so of filing and the test drive went just fine.
I had wanted a 7 PPI saw from another company, but at $225.00 it was far out of my price range. The Putsch, with its clunky handle and odd saw nuts, is not quite up the expensive saw's standards, but it gives 80 to 90% of what the other saw does for a quarter the price. That's a good deal in my book.
Because it's a rip saw, sharpening is easy: just take two strokes with a triangular file straight across the saw on each tooth. No need to fool around with various angles (fleam) like on a crosscut saw.
Just remember that this is not a general purpose saw; it is for ripping (cutting along the wood grain). Trying to use it for crosscutting will likely lead to frustration.

I thought an imported German rip saw would be finely crafted.....this thing looks like a cheap Stanley, kids'-play-set toy.
I really haven't used it yet: we'll see!.....
