Boy, did that title catch my eye.
I really enjoyed your post, Joe. It's dangerous work working around trees.
You have some wonderful tools on display.
I also enjoyed your writing very much. That is a great heritage in your family.
I am a carpenter and I have used handsaws in a different way.
I found this old thread. I love these saws and with the exception of the ice saw I learned to use every one of them.
Unfortunately, I never learned to sharpen them. I had to pay others to do that for me. They were an absolute pleasure to use.viewtopic.php?f=42&t=38018&hilit=hand+saws
