I have purchased a small 10 inch backsaw possibly a dovetail saw for six dollars

. It has a steel brace on top instead of brass. On the brace it says kensa Sheffield and has 481 with a circle around it. It seems to have twelve teeth per inch. I cannot find any information out on this saw and was wondering if anyone might know if it is a dovetail saw or not. It seems to work well in rip cutting. Thanks for any help

Try posting in the mega saw thread:

The experts there would know if anybody does.

Looks like it’s missing the saw nuts. And if it’s straight and sharp, no reason why you couldn’t use it as a dovetail saw.

Yes it had rivets in the handle and they pretty much fell out

Find some saw nut and roll with it. Looks like a dovetail saw.
