  • Which saw for bones?

    Ok - got a basic question with hopefully an easy answer - is a standard hacksaw the best thing to use to cut bones to make bone broth? I am thinking of getting one for my kitchen.

    Anyone already do this?

    Thanks!

    My butcher will cut bones for me... Are you sure your meat supplier cannot do the same?

      Possibly but I often buy meat on the bone and currently I break them with a hammer, which can be messy :-)

          This is the preferrable option no doubt!

              I've seen my butcher use a saw that looks just like a hacksaw, so that should work! Hunters also use bone saws, google it!

                Good point, just googled hunter's bone saw, that looks like a useful purchase. The butchers bone saws are a bit expensive but it looks like a standard hacksaw will do the job

                  My dad used a hacksaw on some lamb bones once. It left a blue stain on them but other than that it was good. XD

                    This is NOT the same as a hacksaw......

                      i have used a pruning saw on venison leg bones and i also axe them. a good bone saw would be rather nifty. bones from the shop, i ask nicely and get them to saw up for me.

                        First thing that came to mind for me was using an autopsy bone saw but that is just the way my mind works....sorry.

                          my only concern with an autopsy saw is it prob doesnt stay sharp as long as a more mundane saw as i bet they only use them once. i def need a bone saw. had to axe the end off a venison hock today to fit it in the slow cooker. who knows where the axe had been either. thinking about it, i can disjoint an animal with just a knife. you just need to cut the joints in the right place. and i reckon a $10 hand saw from the local hardware store would prob do the trick for any bones you need to saw up.

                            It would work.... as, that is it's intended purpose......

                              The autopsy and butcher's saws are in some ways similar...... I'm thinking of getting the small hunter's one as I only occasionally need to do this -after I've cooked a large joint on the bone and want to then use the remaining bone for broth
