Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Hand Saws

Manufacturer: Tyzack
Tool Type: Hand Saw
Model No: 118


The W.Tyzack Sons & Turner 118 hand saw is fitted with a lacquered Beech handle and a steel blade.

The handle is secured to the blade with the use of five brass buttons, one of which has a thick black border marked 'W.Tyzack Sons & Turner' in a circular motion around it.

The reverse side of the buttons have flat-head screwdriver slots for adjusting the tightness of the buttons, if required.

Many of the Tyzack saws, including the 118 had the Tyzack Elephant etching on the blade, an Elephant trade label, an Elephant picture on the packaging and some of the saws have the Elephant symbol on or around the medallion. Many of the Tyzack saws also have the word 'Nonpareil'. This brand of saws was known as the 'Elephant Brand'.

The blade was made with Tyzack's 'Super Silver Steel' blade which was made taper-ground (from the teeth to the back) with the skewback design.

The early Tyzack 118 saws had a black cellulosed English beech handle with a flat brass medallion.

The Tyzack 118 saw was made in many different lengths and various teeth per inch (tpi).

The Tyzack number 118 saw was manufactured in Sheffield, England.
