Went to a little consignment shop today that I’ve been to a couple of times…

I didn’t want to leave empty handed then I noticed this saw…

I couldent tell if it was a D-7 or a no. 12 (because the etch was unreadable at the time), but the handle looked like a 12…

As it turns out Disston did make a shipwrights version of the no.12 and I think $5 was a super good deal even with the top horn broken off…

Its a 7ppi, it appears to be rip filed but the rake looks more xcut to me.

If the day comes that I remember how to take a tighter pic I’ll post it.

yes, it looks like those teeth need some work. Nice saw for $5.
