That’s a crusty one!

Id scrape all the rust off that I could with a razor blade. Like one of those paint scraper jammys. Then, as suggested, soak and scrub, soak and scrub. The handle might be gluable, might not. Give it a shot and see what happens. You’re only going to be out some glue. Those teeth are pretty well mangled but again, a good spot to learn. You might not make it usable again but youll gather knowledge and experience. You’ve got a decent saw but nothing that’s irreplaceable. A panther head it aint.

IMO, play around with it, have fun, learn a few things along the way.
