I come across a lot more saws with medallions that say “Warrented Superior” than any made by Disston, Atkins, or others (even the Superior brothers :) ).

Some of the “Warrented” saws look pretty good, but I don’t know how well they would work as users. If I find an old “Warranted” saw with brass nuts that has a straight blade and little rust, is there any reason to avoid putting it to use?

Also, I have an old Lakeside rip saw from the 1930s or so. Does anybody know who the actual make might have been?

I’ve got a few Lakeside tools, Brett. No saws, though. I think Don, Andy, and the other saw guys would recommend any and all saws! ;)

I remember reading somewhere that the “warranted” label meant that It was either a process or type of steel, can’t remember exactly. There was a “Superior Saw Works” company and again, if memory serves me correctly, some companies put the medalion that stated “superior” as well. If I remember correctly, it started in England.

If I am wrong somebody out there should know.
