Hi, I’ve been lurking on the forum for a few months now as I recently gained an interest in old tools. This forum has been a great resource. I’ve primarily been buying up old Stanley planes lately, but picked up this saw yesterday. The more I google around on it, the more I think I stumbled into something pretty special. Anyone have any input they can provide on what I have here?

Etching on the blade says: Warranted to run without set in dry seasoned lumber only and is not for general use. High in temper, specially ground for clearance and requires no set

I think it is 10tpi.

Blade is about 28” long. It is about 1 and a half inches wide at the tip and about 5 and a half inches at the handle.

Thanks for any input!

Thats a very cool score matt. Its an interesting saw for sure.

Here’s a lil info on her:

Have your say...
