J. Flint Rochester NY Two Man / Two Handle SawJ. Flint Rochester NY Two Man / Two Handle Saw   Here is an odd ball 19th century saw.  J. Flint is  well known saw maker who first set up in Rochester NY and later moved his business into Canada.  He is most famous for his near unique patented hand saw handle design that has two handles on the same end to allow the user to better use both hands when rip cutting lumber. 

There are plenty of references to him and his business to be found online, especially concerning that patented 2 handle saw handle. He is also well known for his line of well made backsaws and articles about them have appeared in the Gristmill.  Despite that I could find no info about, or references to, a saw like this. I could also not find a copy of any catalogs although I did see reference to ones.  Disston put out a similar saw which is pictured in their 1876 catalog. (see last pic)

The overall condition is very nice.  The horns on the distinctive handles are good, and the teeth are all good. The blade is not pitted or rusty.  The stamp is clear, and placed right in the middle of the saw blade.    Different!!

2 Man Cross Cut Saws3 different 2 Man Cross Cut Saws  The largest one is an 8' saw.  It is NOS.  The others are just under 6'.  I cleaned the light rust that was on these saws.  I used a nylon brush on a power sander.  All three saws came from a closed hardware store and had minor storage rust issues.  I think you can see in the pics that they have not been sharpened or used at all.  You can just make out etches on 2 of them.  The 8' one says Precision Ground.   Also included is the pair of Disston handles which are also new / NOS.

Good + . . . . .$350.00       SOLD!
