Pruning saws

This project was my final work of my intership at Burg Giebichenstein University of Arts and Design in Halle, Germany.
3D printed handles are tailored especially for saw blades produced by Pilana. This is one of the largest saw producers in Europe. They have a very sophisticated blade production, but they import handles from China. I decided to explore how do people work with a saw and what kind of shape is natural for them. I used air-dry clay for an imprint of my hand in different position. I scanned it and edited in 3D software. Because people are diverse, I have prepared three sizes of each shape with a right and left-handed version. Files are ready for 3D print, for some of them is possible to use CNC milling machine.
