Review By: I.Ball

Category: Other Saws

Manufacturer: John Cockerill

Tool Type: Keyhole Saw

Model No: 1


We have given this John Cockerill keyhole saw the model number 1 until a time arrives where a genuine Cockerill model number is found; I am almost certain there was never a model number given for this saw.

The John Cockerill keyhole saw is a small saw fitted with a shaped beech handle.

The handle was fitted with two old brass split-nut buttons which had the dual function of adding to the style of the saw as well as importantly securing the blade in position.

These saws are also sometimes referred to as an old pad saw.

This particular saw photographed had an 10 1/2 inch long blade with 7 tpi (teeth per inch).

There is also a whole host of additional information on the history of saw making, how to date a saw, in depth details on each of the large makers and much more, making for the most interesting read and leaving you with a slight desire to buy an old British saw.
