(SUB)PRIME-CUTS Saws by Vault49 Have Multiple Uses

A design studio in New York called Vault49 has created '(SUB)PRIME-CUTS,' a series of hand-painted saws. The series is part of a project that is against international budget cuts.

Each of these five large-scale hand saws have been intricately painted with various colorful typography, complete with phrases like "No Pain No Gain," "The Big Bailout," "Austerity" and more.

When asked about the project, Vault49 had this to say, "Budgets are being butchered all around the world, and even worse it’s been done in such bad taste. These finely crafted financial tools should trim the fat nicely."

The part that I enjoy the most about these saws is that they serve so many purposes. They can be used as art pieces that can hang above a mantel or on a wall, and they speak out on something that is important. Stats for Handcrafted Typographic Handsaws Trending: Older & Chilly
