That is also an interesting bow saw variant. Any background story on what it was used for?
It is cool. I don’t know anything additional. Perhaps someone else can comment.
It was in a marqueterie shop in Revel, France. Part of a took chest that had LOTS of craftsman-made tool handles and what looked like a tenon saw with the same pistol grip. it cut on the pull stroke. The tools and shop were from around 1890 and a little French, a special light in my eye and, and a big smile allowed me to get to handle the tools and make a few shavings.
