Atkins No 64 London Spring Steel Rip Saw 4ppi 28 Inch -- Freshly Sharpened
This saw is massive! At 28 inches long, with a nearly full-height plate and huge rip teeth set at a pitch of 4ppi, they do not come much bigger.
The Atkins No 64 is at the top of the line, comparable with Disston's No 12 in quality and performance. The apple wood handle has a wheat-carved tri-lobe design indicative of a high end saw.
The plate is smooth, with some light staining. The handle is in perfect condition, with no cracks or chips. A high quality finish was recently applied, such that it looks nearly new, which is pretty amazing for a saw that appeared in Atkins' 1906 catalog.
