It's been another great year at Tuatahi and we've been really pleased to be able to offer quality hand crafted products to all of you, and thank you very much for your support.

At Tuatahi we're really pleased to announce this year our association with Brad Turner from KBT Competition Saws.
Due to the amount of hand work that goes into saws, and the increasing waiting times to get saws, it was obvious that we had to look at new ways in which to get gear to our customers quicker and still retain the quality.
We worked closely with Brad who traveled to NZ for extensive training with us, and we are now semi grinding saws for Australia and sending them directly to Brad to complete the finishing work.
Brad has had some outstanding success with the saws he has filed, and it allows our customers in Australia to have a point of contact there, and a person to file saws as well.
