Topic tags/keywords: disston saw

Picked up this saw and having difficulty identifying it. Has a Disston medallion and is about 30” long from tip to tip.
Thought it might be a pruning saw, but can’t find any references to it on the disston related web sites.

DW, I don’t recall anything about it over at the Disstonian Institute my guess, certainly based on the handle that it’s a very late model saw and was made well after Disston was gone in all but name following its purchase by Porter Cable. Most websites cover just the older more desirable saws. This saw also looks to be a brush saw likely.
