Ohlen Bishop 388

Here's a new condition Ohlen Bishop No. 388 5' Perf Lance Felling saw. It has never been sharpened and was coated in cosmoline (I think. Nasty thick black tar-like hard oil). It cleaned up great and I wanted to post up some photos of it for reference before I tune it.

Here's the etch, one of the nicest I've seen.

The whole saw.

Detail of the end.

Another of the etch and teeth.

I know this is an old post on the 388, but I picked up the identical saw. There almost no information on #388 60".

My etch is 80%+ and the rest of the saw will clean up very well. Unfilled.

The #388 is crescent ground.
