    Sawing Bones

    Is there a particular kind of manual saw or sawblade to use when cutting bones for, say, making bone-in ribeyes or pork chops from whole loins? I think a bandsaw would be overkill and a cleaver not precise enough. Regular hacksaw blades work meh. Any suggestions appreciated

    Have you looked at a bonesaw? I used them in a dissection class and they work reasonably well. Had something like this - http://www.amazon.com/Satterlee-Bone.../dp/B005DIE0BE

    F. Dick make a good one. I use one every couple of days breaking down Argentines. Replaceable blade lasts a long time.
