Item S7 - Jefferson Back Saw.

This small back saw has a steel spine marked, “Jefferson / Warranted Cast Steel”. The closed beech wood handle has two brass saw screws and no medallion. The blade has an 8” edge length and is a uniform 2 1/8” depth under the spine. It is filed 13 ppi, cross cut, and is decently sharp. I can find no similar example in my American and British saw references, but the “cast steel” appellation suggest greater age than the 1930s era to which I attribute it. The flawless handle has long and graceful horns, and the saw is in top condition. It will be a very welcome saw to use in cutting dovetails. Fine
