Does anyone know if this is a good keeper?
It looks like a dovetail saw, but i dont really know much about hand saws.

Hey Fancy, E.C. Atkins is one of the finer saw makers, it’s definitely a keeper. Have fun, make some dust.

A mighty solid saw in great shape. Should have an apple handle i think. Looks to be about 12” long maybe a 12ppi? Id say it would be a large dovetail saw or a carcass saw. It would work good for dovetails, but may have a bit much set causing a larger kerf. You can reduce the set by running a fine stone down the sides of the teeth. It would also work well for other, smaller joinery work. Probably worth $35 as it sits and you could double that if it was all cleaned up. A great score.
