Disston No.42 - 26"/9 Pt. Combination Saw
c.1900 ~ EXTREMELY RARE & VG

The only one of this model that I have ever found in some 43 years of looking. Etching is faint, but readable (the number 42 is stamped). Blade is straight and is moderately sharp. Staining of the steel throughout with some minor pitting, but not along the tooth line. APPLEWOOD handle has minor closed cracks lower down and forward and some chipping of the horns. The original scribe is inserted in its socket on top of the handle. An extremely rare premium saw of its time with lots of age related character that is a still functioning tool.
