I will sharpen anything you bring me–maybe with the exception of balloons and bubbles. There is, for me at least, a lot of satisfaction in putting things right again. I do love restoring the older things but unless I am already familiar with them, they prove to be a huge distraction. Some times I will spend hours researching a tool brought to me so I will know everything I can before I start on it. The saw shown in the picture to the left is an example of a distraction. I knew right away, when Woody, the customer, handed me the saw, it was special.
This saw was made by Harvey W. Peace in Brooklyn, NY. I would guess it is a late 1800’s or early 1900’s saw. You may be interested in how this saw was manufactured and why there is such a difference between today’s “throw-away” saws and an older generation saw. For the story of of Harvey W. Peace manufacturing go to this site.
