Anyone know a UK online source for this sort of saw please?

http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.asp?page2930&category=1,42884,42906&ccurrency=2&SID Not seen one quite like it before, but it's exactly what I want - the reversible version of the two that is!
It's going to be agro getting that from the US of A - I can cope, but rather buy here if poss.

Have you tried contacting the company by email to see if they have a UK outlet?

Can't see it there, but I have to use their site as they got no paper cataloques till sept. Using their site is not always reliable I've found.

As suggested; Axminster is the obvious source: http://www.axminster.co.uk/default.asp?part=VRS10 But it doesn't have Japanese style teeth, if that's an issue for you. You might find a search for "reversible gent's saw" could yield further options (but I haven't tried it).
Just for the record, Lee Valley Veritas are a Canadian company, not US, and despite pleas they have no plans to have a European outlet for their business when I last heard. Brimarc only stock the Veritas badged stuff, and even then only a limited range (not the planes for instance, curse them!). The saws in question don't appear to be Veritas ones, so it could be worth an email to Lee Valley to find out the manufacturer.
Cheers, Alf

Thanks for this, it'll be fine - I have no idea how you found that on their site though (glad you did!) It's the offset handle which is prime requirement so Jap teeth not a large issue, but would have been a bonus!
