I have seen one of these saws for sale…actually it was a different brand (20+ yrs ago) and it was really heavy. As for driving a 16d in TWO blows, the old guys could do it in one. They used long handles. Larry Haun (Fine Homebuilding) was still doing this in his 60s. I ordered a video of his and he and his brother were driving 16ds with one blow and he even talked about how few guys could do this today.
