I have many hand saws. Some are nice and shiny and others have an older look to them. Most of the time I get to choose what they look like, and it mainly depends on if there is an etch or not. This time around I had a Simmonds No 61 saw. It is a 7tpi and believe it is filed for rip cuts. This thing was in rough shape. Very rusty and the handle is worthless. I will be working on a handle later and trying to learn how to make the wheat pattern, but this video I clean up the blade and show how great bluing can look and give it an “aged” look after getting it cleaned. Here is the video of the bluing

This looks like it has been laid out in a grassy field for a while

After scraping, sandpaper, and some bluing the etch really stands out.
