Small Pistol Grip Brass Back Saw by IBBOTSON *SOLD*

Code: 2298i

An unusual small back saw by IBBOTSON of Sheffield.

Marked 'THOS IBBOTSON & CO' on the brass back.

The beechwood handle is of a pistol grip design that we have not seen before although there is something very similar shown on page 88 of Simon Barley's British Saws & Saw Makers from c1600 book.

The handle is firm and secure with three fixings, two obvious plus a pin - please see close-up image

The 8 inch blade is straight with all teeth (12/13 tpi) present and well formed.

Some pitting and staining spots.

Previous owner's stamp 'WH'.

1211/16 inches overall length.

An interesting little saw.
