    Some cuts from the James Howarth catalogue available on
    Points of interest to me were
    German steel saws with London pattern handle
    No skew back Handsaws yet listed; how long did they have to wait before copying Disston?
    I found this to be a fascinating snapshot of the saw industry in 1884.
    Cast Steel Stone saw is a beauty; my parents cut the stone for their first house with one of those.
    London Firewood saw? was this for better class firewood?
    Happy reading
