Hey everyone, just sharing an interesting saw I picked up recently. It has a seemingly early-ish style handle, three smaller split nuts and what looks like a stamp that reads BEARDSHAW (at least to me). No other stamps are visible. I've gone back and forth on the handle, as it looks earlier in style, but could also be of the later London pattern found on lower quality saws. It has a heavily rounded toe, but this could also be user modified. I've gone over and over on the plate and can read a very light stamp that has EARDSH (attempted to capture in photos). The stamp is very faint despite this saw plate being in fairly good condition when I received it and appears similar to Simon's photo in this thread: http://www.backsaw.net/forum/index.php?threads/beardshaw-son-hand-saw.523/#post-3229. Of course it doesn't have a visible & SON or CAST STEEL, but given how faint the stamp is I can't be certain it isn't there. So... despite my feeling this is a relatively early Beardshaw, I'm curious what others may think. Other options could be HANDSHAW, or maybe MARSHALL. Or maybe just a late 19c Ashton or some other lower quality saw with a light stamp? Nice saw nonetheless, feels great in the hand and is in really amazing condition despite it's apparent age.
