This saw has a 26" straight back blade, with a nib, and the handle is fixed with 4 split nut screws. What makes the saw interesting is that the heads of all the screws are miniature medallions, just over 1/2" dia, with the "eagle" "warranted superior" motif. With some careful cleaning of the blade, some shadow of the etch was found, looking like "S-----LD STEEL" with a line underneath and a few letters/numbers below that. Initially I thought it might be "sheffield steel" despite the eagle medallions suggesting an American origin. Using my magnifier, more cleaning, tilting the blade to get just the right lighting, more cleaning, closing one eye and standing on one foot, going cross-eyed, etc, I am now convinced that the wording is "SELECTED STEEL" over a model number, maybe "350" [? what were they thinking ? "selected", as apposed to "randomly found" ?] I think the major part of the etch with the maker/retailer data was above the "selected steel" part, but is 95% worn away, as there are a few blotches remaining that I can imagine as part of an etch. Does anyone know, or have any guesses, as to who made/sold this style of saw ?
