You can always salvage the handle and the brass for parts or you could cut the saw down for a backsaw or smaller panel saw from that D20 but youre right, there isn’t much plate left.

The couple of rips saws ive done had an appearances of a crosscut as well too Charlie it might be the set that is making it look that way.

If for some reason that saw kicks around unsharpened until the early winter months I might be your hobby money guy. Id jump all over the opportunity to sharpen it up for ya if I wasn’t in the middle of a kitchen remod. It’s taken me about 3 hours a saw to get them right again and that has included reshaping all of the teeth. If it just need a freshening up id say it can be done in around an hour.

Can we get a close up of the teeth on it?
