Antique hand tools - PREMIUM QUALITY saw S398

Up for sale is a cool vintage SPEAR & JACKSON 11ppi Crosscut Carcass saw, a heavy iron back & with an American pattern handle, circa 1880s.

A 12” 300mm plate, a fast cutting 11ppi crosscut, this saw has been hand sharpened to 15° of rake & 25° of fleam.
A plate of Cast Steel & a heavy iron back, this is a saw from the "Golden Years" of saw manufacture from the late 19th century, 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.

It cuts well, please note all sharpened saws are fully guaranteed, if it fails your expectations of a sharp saw, send it back in the condition that I sent it to you for your money back- simple.
Please note any blue colour you can see on the tooth line is engineers set out fluid- our saw Dr (Jim the saw man) uses it to keep track of where he's filed- if you've ever sharpened a saw that will make sense to you.

Please DM us if you are looking for a particular model, maker or type antique/vintage saw, as we have many SHARP ANTIQUE/ VINTAGE SAWS ready for use available in our shop, plus hundreds more yet to restore.
