Item S5 - Richardson Bros’ “Improved” Extra Spring Steel Tenon Saw.  12” 

This scarce tenon saw by Richardson Brothers of Newark, NJ has a 12” blade showing a slim profile with an even blade depth of 2 ¼” under the steel spine.  The latter is not marked, but the somewhat tarnished blade retains nearly all of its original etching.  The apple handle has no cracks or chips, with graceful horns and here brass slotted saw screws and a Richardson medallion, with its trademarked Maltese Cross. There is tarnish on the blade, but little pitting of  the very fine variety.  The saw screw and nut on the handle nosepiece is a replacement.  The blade is filed 14 ppu and is quite sharp. This will make a nice smaller tenon saw, or a good back saw for a small mitre box.  This appears to be an original Richardson Bros. saw (before the Disston takeover, and is a scarce item.  Good+
