The Verdict

Ward Saw Review By: I.Ball


Category: Old Hand Saws

Manufacturer: Ward

Tool Type: Hand Saw

Model No:

This lovely London, England old Ward hand saw is fitted with an elegant shaped Beech handle and a nibbed blade.

The handle and the blade are locked together with the use of 3 brass split-nut buttons.

The brass buttons have a special split-nut screwdriver slot on the reverse side of the handle. This allows the user to tighten or unscrew the buttons as required.

The saw handle has a flat underside. This Ward saw has all the characteristics of a saw made in the Victorian era / 19th century.

Interestingly this saw mark is not in the 'British Saws and Saw Makers from c1660' book, written by Simon Barley. In fact there doesn't appear to be any Ward of London saw references.

The saw shown in the photo had a 28 inch long blade with a 4 tpi (teeth per inch) blade. Other sizes of this saw were produced.
