Item details

Vintage Henry Disston Back Saw -1888-1890's

Backsaws have two uses, to cut joints and to cut in a miterbox. This 12 inch backsaw is meant for a miter box.

Research from various sources including the Disstonian Institute website, which is a respected reference among tool collectors, dates the saw as manufactured between 1888 and 1890's.

The medallions on Disston saws give the most accurate indication of manufacturing dates.
The medallion on this back saw dates it between 1888 to early 1890's. Less than 10% of collectible Disston saws fall into this era and earlier (civil war) which makes it rather rare for a Disston. See photo #3 The civil war era Disston saws command the highest prices of all if you can find one.

Another indication of the saws age is logo found on this backsaw. The stamped logo was used on saws produced after 1871 until about the turn of the 20th century. See photo #4

This saw is straight and true and SHARP, SHARP, SHARP! I tried it out in my miter box and it works nicely and does not need sharpening!!

Super cool gift for your son, grandson, dad, husband, well, you get the idea.
