Saw Specialists is a saw blade manufacturer that is based in Durban, South Africa.  We are a family-owned and run business that was established in 1966. From humble beginnings, the company has progressed to be the largest supplier of quality saws in South Africa.  Saw Specialists are the South African pioneers in the manufacture of all types of saw blades. Our saw blades are manufactured to your specifications or as recommended by our technical staff. 

Saw Specialists manufacturers from start to finish.  We import all our raw materials, grinding wheels, steel, carbide, silver solder, and manufacturing machinery from Europe. These are all supplied by world leaders in their fields and are of top quality. We pride ourselves that we can design or copy any blade from 80 mm to 1500 mm to be able to provide a solution. Every set of saws we make or recommend is made to order and not what we have off the shelf. 

Saw Specialists has developed and changed over the decades.  It has changed from being a small repair-orientated servicing company to one that has diversified into a number of industry-related fields.

We have expanded our range to include the manufacture of narrow band saw blade servicing equipment, manufacturing both petrol and electric narrow band saw log break down machines. We have made full use of our laser cutting, CNC machining center, and CNC lathe to expand our product diversity.

We now boast a significant staff complement. Our Head Office, based in Durban, has a combined floor space of 4,000 square meters, and is situated near the port of Durban. We have a repair factory in Mkondeni, outside Pietermaritzburg as well as a distribution centre in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga. We are also one of the biggest exporters to the Sub Saharan Africa.

We strive to provide value to the industry.  Our management and technical teams are involved in partnerships with our customers and together we provide solutions that work. In addition to supplying saw blades, we also provide technical support in the form of alignment, band saw wheel grinding, saw shop room assistance and consulting. By doing this we provide value as a tooling supplier.


International quality materials are used in the manufacture of our products and production is carried out on the latest CNC machinery. A combination of these two factors ensures the manufacture of a superior quality product.

The supply of a superior quality product and customer satisfaction are the key factors that can be attributed to the growth and success of Saw Specialists.
