Disston D-8 Crosscut 22 Inch Blade CURLY APPLE -- Freshly Sharpened
Check out the beauty of the curly apple in the handle of this Disston D-8 crosscut. Apple wood was used in thousands, maybe even millions, of saws, but few exhibited the curly grain and character found in this handle.
It is attached to a 22 inch long blade that is clean and straight. The etch is bold and visible. The upper horn was broken and trimmed sometime in the past, but will not affect function. It would be nearly impossible to match the grain and color of this wood anyway.
The 10 ppi crosscut teeth have been freshly sharpened:
Rake Angle: 15º
Fleam Angle: 20º
Slope Angle: 0º
Tooth Set: 0.004"
