ENGRAVED MINIATURE SAW. 8" blade with nib and actual working teeth (14 tpi crosscut) - you could cut very small boards with it; good lamb's-tongue handle. The blade is engraved with a scene showing a seaside castle with ships, and the phrase "Compliments of R. H. Vanness." Pictured on page 159 of Sandor Nagyszalanczy's Tools Rare and Ingenious. Likely British in origin and a presentation piece of some kind. From the collection of Steve Dice.

Marked with 11/14/93 and 1/12/97 dates for the patents of George Kennedy and Milford Wilson, according to the DATAMP data base it was manufactured by two Painesville, OH, companies, but this one is clearly marked "Atkins Filer" and Indianapolis. Nickel mostly worn off, and some wear to the wood, but otherwise clean and complete. You'll need to supply the file.

Uncommon example of Alfred Remington's 1908 patented saw handle adjustment, with two T-shaped slots that allow the blade to be positioned at different angles or reversed. There's only one bolt, but we think that's the way it was made. Marked with the patent date, which is unusual. 16" blade with super clear etch, handle is immaculate.
