    well here we are in 2020 and we can still find old saws about the place and discuss about them here.

    I recently came across what I think is a German made 10" 11ppi back saw.
    It has an open grip beech handle, which is attached with I think rivets rather than split nuts.
    the medallion reads GERMANIA SAGE
    with a compass and square logo, which is stamped on the back as well.

    It is a manufacturer that I have not come across before, but thought South Aust. would be a place to find one
    because of the many early German ancestors that settled here.

    Any comments would be welcome.

    Graham.
