Hi guys this is my first blog, i like to share my recent vintage tool find, i work with hand tools i am a beginner i am constantly searching for good tools, where i am lacking is saws, its hard to find vintage saws in mainland europe most of the saws are bow saw and frame saws in bad shape, i was surprised to find this two saws its just what i was hunting for, a long ripsaw for resawing and a small tenon saw.
The first one is a swedish made saw, Stridsberg & Björck is etched on the saw plate its hardly visible its 24inch long 6tpi its straight and true, i have to clean it up and resharpen the teeth.

The second one is a small tenon saw 10inch long over 2inch wide saw plate file rip 12tpi made in germany by Schutz ulmia, i clean and sharpen this saw it cuts great it pitted but it not bad.

I am planning in making two 16inch backsaws, i am in search for a way of folding the back for the saws, i will probably make a blog on building the saws in the future.

Yes, good find. Most interesting case as well. Is that a repair on the tenon/dovetail saw handle? Interesting! Show us again when you get them cleaned up!

Nice tools to find. They should look great when you finish the cleaning.
Hope to see many projects that you use these for.
