All teeth are complete and still in sharp condition. A rare piece of character and quality from over a century past. The thickness of this blade helped to create a straight "rip" cut down the length of a log. This type of saw required an especially powerful kobiki-shokunin (sawyer) as seen in the 1830's Hokusai woodblock print in the last picture (not included). Measures 36 overall (91.5 cm).
With a blade length (teeth area) of 24 1/2" long by 5" wide (62.5 x 12.5 cm). Old world craftsmanship for the new world craftsman!
Its kiri (paulownia) wood handle is still in great shape and has a warm aged patina. You'll love it, I guarantee it.........
