John Moreton & Co Tenon Saw -- New Plate, Freshly Sharpened
Here is a beautiful 12 inch long tenon saw with an English beech handle. Sold by John Moreton & Co of Sheffield, England, the stamp on the spine includes two crowns and a butterfly. The company operated from 1879 to 1929 at 96 Carver Street in Sheffield.
The original blade was damaged, so it was replaced with a new 0.020 inch thick 1095 spring steel plate and toothed with 14 ppi rip teeth. With a 3 inch tall blade, this would make an excellent tenon saw or large dovetail saw.
