Picked up a little handsaw the other day
I figured that for $3 + TAX I could at least clean it up. Tote looked great, no cracks
Just couldn’t quite make out the medallion. Decided to clean it up, brass and all
Brass medallion has an Eagle. It has the word WARRANTED under the Eagle. Above the eagle are the words “Phoenix” and “Patented”. Never heard of this “brand” of saws. Saw Plate looks to be redrilled, though
The Tote looks very good, and fits the hand nicely.
Even has some wheat carvings , as well. Tooth count seems to be in the 7-8 range. It also has quite a bit of set to the teeth. Rip saw, maybe? Did not find any etch on the plate.
Any ideas WHAT I have here, besides a good looking, cheap saw?
