Antique hand tools - PREMIUM QUALITY saw S443

Up for sale is a Premium Quality WINGFIELD & ROWBOTHAM & Co of SHEFFIELD dovetail saw, freshly hand sharpened & set, this saw dates to circa 1880-90s. 

An 8" / 203mm plate 0.5mm thick & 38mm deep, freshly hand sharpened to 5° of rake & is a fine cutting 14.5PPI rip profile for dovetails.
A comfortable handle & a heavy brass folded back, this is a saw from the "Golden Years" of saw manufacture from the early 20th 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.

Size: 34cm

Weight: 300g
