    Which saw for bones?

    Shop Now
    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 :-)

    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
