SOLD: This straight-handled saw is suitable for small trimming chores, miters or fine dovetails. Made by Gramercy (the Brooklyn trade name for Tools for Working Wood), this fine little saw has serious heft. Its thick brass back has a gorgeous bead on its end, which is up against a perfect walnut handle.
This is a 15-point crosscut saw with nice hand-filed gullets, which makes it surprisingly aggressive and yet smooth in the cut. The saw is sharp, straight and ready to work.
The only apology is the stripe of tarnish on the brass back. I don’t know how that got there. You can remove it if you like. This saw retails for $109.
Price: $70 plus $7 domestic shipping.
About Tool Sales on My Blog
Please read this if you are interested in buying a tool. Why am I selling these tools? Read this entry before you freak out. There is no “master list” of tools that I can send you. I am working through several piles of tools and will list them when I can.
Want to see only the tools that haven’t sold? Easy. I’ve created a category for that on this blog. Click here and bookmark that page. When you visit that link, you’ll see only the tools that haven’t been sold.
While you can ask me all the questions you like about the tool, the first person to send me an e-mail that says: “I’ll take it,” gets the tool. Simple. To buy a tool, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment: I can accept PayPal or a personal check. As soon as the funds arrive, I’ll ship the tool using USPS. If you want insurance, let me know. I’m afraid I can only ship tools in the United States. Shipping internationally is very time-consuming and paperwork-heavy. My apologies in advance on this point.
If you don’t like the tool when you get it, I’ll be happy to refund your money if you return the tool. But postage is on you.
