Kind of a mashup of obsolete styles of saws. I spent zero dollars making this. Finished tuning and filing it a few minutes ago. So far I like it. the plate is from a worn out George Bishop crosscut. the handle is patterned after an Atkins keyhole saw. the wood is from my scrap pile. the nuts are from the bottom of my saw parts drawer (no idea...) kind of like a dovetail saw except for no back, and about 10 tpi, and a thick plate, and a low hang angle, and filed crosscut. I gave it a low rake to go with the low hang angle. It seems to saw well enough
