This antique Wheatman And Smith hand saw is an old English saw fitted with an elaborately decorative shaped Beech handle.

The handle is secured to the blade with the use of four old brass split-nuts.

The split-nut buttons are set perfectly flush with the handle. On the reverse side of the handle the split-nut buttons have an interupted flat-head screw slot. These slots require a special split-nut screwdriver to tighten or loosen them.

The saw shown is 28 inches in length and has 7 teeth per inch (tpi). There were different lengthed and tpi versions of this saw produced.

This Wheatman And Smith saw had a nibbed blade; the top edge of the blade near the front end had a stepped section with a small nib rising from the top edge.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
