Richardson Bros 28 Inch Rip Saw 5ppi -- Freshly Sharpened
Here is a big rip saw from Richardson Bros. The 28 inch long blade is filled with five sharp teeth per inch. The apple handle has a nice lamb's tongue. The upper horn is chipped, though there are no cracks or breaks. The blade is clean and straight, with some light freckling on the surface. The tip of one tooth has a chip missing since it didn't quite disappear during sharpening. It is at the toe of the saw so it will not affect performance.
The 5ppi rip teeth have been freshly sharpened:
Tooth Type: rip
Rake Angle: 7º
