Tenon Saw?

Answer

A tenon saw is a type of hand saw that makes use of a stiffened edge to give stability to the blade while it's cutting. The stiffened edge can be made of metal or wood and also gives the blade weight. Tenon saws generally have between 10 and 13 teeth per one inch of blade. Most tenon saws have closed handles, though some smaller ones might have open or pistol grip handles.
