    Hello all,

    When I first saw this, I thought that it was a bit younger than it appears to be.

    I was hoping 1850/60 or before, but the earliest (only as I haven't looked any further) Hare that I can find is in the Post Office London directory 1882 part 3 p. 1832. This records a John Hare of 13 Tyssen Street, Bethnal Green as a saw maker.

    There do not appear to be any online directories for London for the 1860s and 70s, or if there are then I cannot find them and if anyone can direct me to a source for them then please do so. It is possible, therefore that the saw could go back to the 1860s although I am not banking on it.

    Anyway the saw, whilst being a little over-cleaned for my liking is in very good condition with an almost perfect handle apart from the chavelled wood around the nuts to the rear.
