E.C. ATKINS & CO. Saw Crosscut Hand-Saw 8 TPI 26"
This is one of the most unusual Atkins saws we have seen with early patent date on the medallion. It has the 26", straight back blade with 8 teeth per inch. The blade is clean, not rusty, about 98% straight, sharp and very useable. The handle is rather plain compared with most we have seen by Atkins, but it is solid and has minimal wear, a few dinged area, but not bad at all. It is marked "E.C. ATKINS & CO. INDIANAPOLIS IND. PAT. DEC. 27.1887 AAA" mark and logo on the handle medallion. The hardware is nickel plated on this one, about 50% remains intact.
