First handmade saw. Made with hand tools only. The etch was made using my marking knife as a graver, then treating with gun blue.

How do you like using it? The grip angle looks a bit steep for me, but that is the differences we all have. If it’s comfy, and saws well, winner winner…

On that etch, you are going to drive some woodworking forum absolutely nutz some day…. Some guy will be showing a pic of this cool old hand saw he came across, “Anybody got an idea what company made this” “has a neat logo on the blade” “you can barely see it”

Thanks for posting, making tools is fun, and something everyone likes to see.

Is that a Lee Valley I see hiding in that last pic??

Loving the saw so far, albeit with the few cuts I have made so far. Handle is about 1 1/8” thick, quite a bit thicker than any commercial saw I have held. Works well with my meat hooks :)

The etch should set it off as a small toolmaker instantly. More of an engraving really.

That is a 20 tpi veritas dovetail saw, was used to let in the saw plate.

Have your say...
