Vintage hand tools - PREMIUM Quality saw S76 EB#345:

Up for sale is a gorgeous No:179 6PPI Crosscut SAW by LLOYD DAVIS (Spear & Jackson) of Sheffield.

A 26" / 660mm long blade, a fast cutting 6PPI crosscut profile & freshly hand sharpened with 15° of rake & 25° of fleam, with a detailed etch, one part of the etch reads "Extra Spring Temper, Lloyd Davis, Sovereign Saw", this saw cuts fast, great for fencing or framing.

Spear & Jackson were making saws in Sheffield from 1833 & are still going in some capacity today, the official company history has their start date as 1760 when Alexander Spear started a hardware & steel making business with William Love, Samuel Jackson became a partner in 1825, & the rest as they say is history,  comparing the etch with known examples indicates that this saw is of 1920-30s manufacture.

A chip carved handle & Extra Spring Temper blade, this is a saw from the "Golden Years" of saw manufacture 1870-1940s, when their skill was at it's zenith & the materials were high quality & makers took pride in their work & stood by their tools as a quality product, carpenters weren't using hand held circular saws yet, so they needed saws that worked well & held an edge.

This saw is for the woodworker that is happy to work unplugged, you'll know what I mean when you read this, it's like fast food vs slow food, it's getting back to the heart of woodworking & using your hands, not flicking a switch & listening to a screaming power tool.

Weight - 750g
