Disston No 9 Rip Saw 28 Inch 5ppi -- Freshly Sharpened
While not scarce, these saws certainly do not come around very often, especially in the big 28 inch size. This is a Disston No 9 made in the 1896-1917 period and has an amazing apple handle that still retains part of the paper label around the medallion. If it weren't for a chip in the bottom horn, the handle would be nearly perfect. The blade is clean and straight. Though the etch on these premium saws is usually deep and bold, this one is missing. It does have a perfect nib(!).
As with all of my saws, the 5ppi rip teeth have been jointed, set, and sharpened with a smooth, yet aggressive profile.
