Can you identify this saw? I was not sure if I should have put the post under skill share or shop safety. I think it would be useful in cutting curly maple.

It looks like a “bone saw” to me…...the kind they use to cut off your arms and legs with…..used pretty much during the Civil War…...to do amputations….That doctor is about to ruin a good saw on Curly’s head…lol. Can you imagine getting hacked up with that saw, and NO anesthesia….wow….!!!!
Probably still used today…..

It’s a 1938 Saw-Stop.

Rick Dennington,
I think you’re right. I think it is a bone saw. I googled the images of older bone saws and sure enough many of them had the unique shape that is in the picture. Also, I note that many of them had the hole (for finger wrap?) just forward of the grip.

bent, is that dental or dentil ?
