The Verdict

Spear And Jackson Saw 88 Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Hand Saws

Manufacturer: Spear And Jackson

Tool Type: Hand Saw

Model No: 88

This model of Spear And Jackson hand saw number 88 is fitted with a hardwood handle. The handle has evolved over the years from a traditional handle design to a streamline shape common to many types of Spear and Jackson saw.

The handle is secured to the blade with the use of four brass buttons. The buttons are set raised from the handle.

The buttons can be tightened or unscrewed by using a flat head screwdriver on the reverse side of the handle.

The S&J no.88 was made over the years with different types of handles including beech, rosewood and I think mahogany?

The rosewood handled version went by the model number P200 'Double Century'.

The saw shown is 25 1/2 inches in length and has 7 teeth per inch (tpi). There were different lengthed and tpi versions of this saw produced.
