Antique hand tools - PREMIUM QUALITY saw S172 EB#:378
Up for sale is a Premium Quality HENRY DISSTON & SONS H4 backsaw, freshly hand sharpened & set.
A 12" / 300mm plate, this saw has been hand sharpened to 15° of rake & 25° of fleam & is a fine cutting 13PPI crosscut profile.
An applewood handle & 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.
This saw is in authentic vintage condition, wear & tear consistent with age & use, freshly hand sharpened & set, the plate sports a near full etch, the handle has age related checking and a well done period repair, a nice fine carcass saw.
It's a lovely saw, ready to go to work in the discerning workshop.
