Topic tags/keywords: saw hand handsaw date dating tools vintage antique tool handtool

Hello fellow hand tool woodworkers. I just picked up a couple of 14” tenon saws. They look and feel pretty great but I’m not sure of the dates. If anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it. The first one is a “Yates and Sons” cast steel Sheffield Warranted. It also has A North on the brass back as you can see in the pics. The second one is a “Collier’s Dixon” cast steel warranted. Thanks for anyone who will help me.

I’ve never dated a saw…I can imagine some pretty cutting edge conversations.
