16 - pocket saw

Claypots haul again... we'd found a "survival saw" - folded away, rusting in a leather pocket...and a large spider to boot! Needless to say, as this odd looking coil of metal and teeth unfurled we had an idea that it might work as a typeface constructor. There is one slight problem, it only bends one way...

Being Experimental - we've decided not to "cheat" - photoshopping bends that the saw can't some letters are more "obscure" than their traditional brothers and sisters in the real alphabet!

If you are a nasty, rusty saw - built for survival - of course you are going to be rugged and uncompromising...honest.

This typeface is now unavailable for download - but will be included in the limited edition CD Rom of all 52 Typefaces at the beginning of 2010. To secure a CD Rom, please email us (Phil & Gabi) at you would like to get involved in making a typeface for the project, please email us at : or leave a comment below!
