Good antique condition with moderate overall wear from normal use over the years but NO breaks or repairs. Has clearly been sharpened many times and has little room for future sharpening. Currently very sharp and ready to use! NO bent and just (1) broken tooth (see red arrow in 4th pic). NO breaks or repairs to handle. Firmly attached by way of its (3) original brass lug nuts and original maker's medallion. Monogrammed at backside of handle (carved dots reading "C.W.K.", see 8th pic). Incredibly rich patina to handle & all brass. Minimal rust and areas of light pitting throughout. Blade is virtually perfectly straight with NO bends or warping. Fantastic example of a VERY RARE saw!! See pics.
Measures 32-5/8" long, horn to tip of blade. Blade is 28" long x 5-5/8" tall (at handle end), and has 4 points per inch (measured point to point) and 3 tips per inch (measured valley to valley). Weighs 1 lb. 10.2 oz..
