This 18” saw was something my Dad had around in his shop that I came across when we cleaned it out several years ago. I kept it, probably for the same reason he did, because it’s an interesting tool. I’ve always wondered what special purpose it was made for. I haven’t taken it apart or cleaned it up in any way yet, but I could find no maker’s mark anywhere on the blade or the handle.
The broken handle was repaired by someone in a very crude way and leaves to question what the handle might have looked like originally.
The blade has an interesting leading end design with two cutout patterns about 7 1/4” apart with a straight edge between them. Any leads or information anyone can give me would be very much appreciated.
