Hello. This is the first handsaw I have refurbished. From tip to handle tip it is 25” long. I replaced the old handle with a handle made of white ash. I downloaded the template for the handle from the Wenzloff & Sons website. The original handle was too large and chunky, cheap hardware store type handle. The blade has 10 tpi filed crosscut with a 20 degree fleam angle. I got this saw for probably $2-$3 bucks at an antique store during the summer. Not sure if there is anything else to say. I hope this encourages other folks to try fixing up some old saws.

Great job Carter, it’s a slippery slope you’re on now though. You made a fabulous job of the new handle. The ash looks nice.

That turned out really nice. There are some hand saws of such a nature on my local Craig’s List. Perhaps I’ll buy them and give it a go. I love restoring old tools like that. Thanks for sharing.

Their right. Slippery slope indeed. First it’s just a couple of hand planes, then a Disston tenon saw. Next you do a Rockwell Jointer. Then you’re telling your wife that you NEED the 14” Oliver, cause its such a good deal and you promise to get it done before the move in a month. Haha. Great job. – Rich
