Picked up this Disston D-8 at the Flea Market. Near as I can tell it’s a late 1920s but before1928 era saw. It cost me $17 bucks. I think it will sharpen up to be a great saw. This is the first hand saw I have bought that I would consider an antque.

Nice looking saw there Ken. I have several D8’s of that vintage and later ones too.
If your willing to ship it, I can sharpen it up for you. But you can probably find someone closer. :)

Have your say...
