At first glance, this saw, with its blade held by a metal strap so you can adjust the depth, or flip it over to use teeth on the top, would appear to be the Wuest's patent as sold by Bishop, but in fact it's the 1914 Smith patent, pretty blatantly ripped off from the Wuest design. One of Disston's least common saws. 12" blade nice and clean with good etch, handle near mint.
