Manufacturer: Sanderson Kayser

Tool Type: Hand Saw

Model No: 1 - Pax

This Pax number 1 saw is an English hand saw made by Sanderson Kayser Ltd of Sheffield, England.

The saw is fitted with a ground thin to back blade made from electrically melted steel. The saw was advertised as having the perfect temper and balance.

This Pax number 1 saw is fitted with a two tone beech handle which is secured to the blade with the use of five brass buttons, one of which is faced with a medallion.

The handle is marked on one side with a foliage design and a man holding a saw.

The rear side has a blue medallion around one of the brass buttons (the button which corresponds with the opposite side of the brass medallion) with the wording 'Pax'.

The buttons can be adjusted using a flat-head screwdriver.

The Pax saw shown is 26 inches in length and has 6 teeth per inch (tpi). There were different lengthed and tpi versions of this saw produced.

The Pax range of saws are now made by Thomas Flinn & Co of Sheffield and England.
