Topic tags/keywords: henshaw woodrough backsaw question

I have a Henshaw & Woodrough backsaw and I am looking for information about it before I do something, like ruin it with restoration.

I Looked online and there is not a lot of information out there showing this maker’s saws.

I did learn that Henshaw was born in England and made saws in the Attleborough Boston area. 1840-1850 Partnered with Woodrough.

Does anyone know much about these saws and if they have any collector historical value. I would like to clean it up and restore but I do not want to destroy a 150-year-old saw if that is what this is.

I don’t have any of the reference books to look it up, but if you post on the saws thread, more people will see it.
