The Breasting of Saws

There is a lot going on in the simple design of a hand saw.

David Linnabary in one of the previous comments suggested we discuss breasting on saws.

Breasting, simply put, is a convex toothline. Breasting is used on more than just hand and panel saws, for instance, flooring, whip and pit saws. Here I am only concerned with hand and panel saws.

Breasting ranges from a fairly light to a heavy convexity depending on the saw
