The Verdict

Etna Saw 24 Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Hand Saws

Manufacturer: Etna

Tool Type: Hand Saw

Model No: 24

The Etna saw number 24 is made with a cast iron blade and a Beech hardwood handle of simple design. The handle has much less intricate design than many saw handles of the time.

The 24 handle is secured to the blade with the use of three brass splitnut buttons.

The saw blade etching shows a picture of a mountain which I would guess represents Mount Etna.

I am not 100 percent 'Etna' is the saw maker, it is possibly a brand. There are possible links to Spear and Jackson who operated from the 'Aetna Works' for a long period of time.

The Etna saw shown is 26 inches in length and has 6 1/2 teeth per inch (tpi). There were different lengthed and tpi versions of this saw produced.
