Patented in 1898 by Frederick Wuest and manufactured by Bishop. Blade is clamped by a bar that allows it to be slid up or down for variable cuts, or reversed entirely to use teeth of a different pitch. They came in various lengths, this is the 12" in nice condition with near perfect applewood handle. Most were made after Bishop relocated to Lawrenceburg, IN, the etch on this one is Cincinnati which, along with the "Patent applied for"?indicates an early model. There is also an etch on the reverse extolling the virtues.

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.

Originally issued in 1915 as the Diamond Jubilee to celebrate Disston's 75th anniversary, and subsequently redesignated the Victory saw when the US entered WWI. It was issued in two models, the D-115 skewback, and D-15 straight. Intended as a top of the line saw with rosewood handle and fancy etching, this one was issued during WWII when walnut was used instead of rosewood. Blade is very clean with clear etching, 26", 8 tpi crosscut. Handle is worn with surface chips in the finish but no damage. Good+ 100-200
