At the heart of quality craftsmanship lies the rich heritage of Marples woodworking tools. Originating in 1828 in Sheffield, England, the Marples brand has consistently stood for superior performance and ultimate precision in fine woodworking.
Founder William Marples came from a long lineage of master craftsmen in the joinery and edge tool trades, and after serving as an apprentice to his father he established William Marples and Sons Limited. Using only the finest materials and hiring only the most skilled workers, Marples had his name stamped into every product as a sign of his confidence in the quality and craftsmanship of each tool.
Today, IRWIN continues the tradition of quality with the introduction of Marples Woodworking Series saw blades. Manufactured in Italy to the highest standards of precision required for fine woodworking and finish carpentry, IRWIN Marples saw blades are specifically engineered for extended life, flawless finish and ultimate precision.
