No. 8 – Backsaw


High quality steel blade, hardened and tempered with blued steel back, hand filed and set, ready for use. Extra choice quality. Applewood handle finished in weatherproof lacquer. Lengths, 10, 12, 14 and 16 inches.

Bishop’s main backsaw. I have one of the largest size (16 inch, 11 ppi) made with an C.A. Strelinger etch. Mine is a bit earlier than pictured above with a more substantial handle, presumably to deal with a heft of a 16 inch blade.
