Manufacturer: Disston

Tool Type: Butchers Saw - Flat Back

Model No: 2

A Henry Disston & Sons Flat Back No. 2 Butchers’ Saw

The number 2 Disston butcher’s saw is fitted with a Beech handle which is secured to the solid steel frame with the use of three Nickel-plated screws.

The top of the frame has a flat surface which is where it gets its name ‘Flat Back’. The Flat Back measures 4.5mm (3/16”) wide x 22mm (7/8”) deep.

There is a brass knurled thumb screw located at the beginning of the blade, just below the handle, for securing the blade in place.

Frame Sizes: 14”, 16”, 18”, 20”, 22” and 24”.

(This particular tool in the photograph had an 18 inch frame).
