Twenty Inches of Cold Blue Steel

Two 10 inch 16 tpi back saws. The blades are 0.020” thick (five sheets of paper) 1095 steel and 3” from teeth to the top of the back.
   – One has an Elm handle and steel back (3/4” x 1/4”). The steel has a baked on linseed oil “bluing”. Filed rip.
   – Madrone (I think) with a tapered brass back (7/8” to 5/8” x 1/4”). Filed crosscut.
All hardware is shop made out of brass or aluminum excepting the 10-24 (handles) & 8-32 (backs) screws and Lee Valley brass Countersunk Washers (I made the aluminum ones).
