6' lance and raker bucking saw

Hoping to get some help ID'ing the saw on the right:

crosscut-ground-1a.jpg


It has lite angle grinder marks where an etching may have existed.

It's 1/4" or 5/16" longer than 72"
One end has nine lances, the other has eight
The width at the first gullet is about 2.5", and 4" to the tip of the 1.5" lance
The middle of the saw is 2.25" wider, or about 4.75" to the gullet and 6.25 to the tooth tip.
Crescent ground
One end has nine lances, the other has eight.

I'm going to guess a Craftsman Big Fir just to stimulate other feedback.
Do you have any faint etch left?
Measured one I just sharpened for a local cache and it measures .095" at the center raker and .090" at the outer rackers. .060" at the center back and .071 on the back opposite the outer rakers. Length is about 1/6 inch over 6 foot with 8 cutters on each end.

Here is the saw in the vise, it's faint etch, and a nice etch example.

Sandersdwa, NICE vise! 3 layers of 3/4" plywood per side? How clever for those of us that don't have access to anything but 1-1/2" lumber.

Looks like a microllam ( https://www.weyerhaeuser.com/woodproducts/engineered-lumber/microllam-lvl/ ) and at least in the US, they should be available anyplace.

Yes, Microlam as suggested by Dolly. Expensive but worth it because I no longer have warping due to conditions and very straight.

I'm not sure of the exact thicknesses. My micrometer is a plastic one branded Blum (hinge/hardware manufacturer) and was probably just bling at some trade show. But it's accurate enough that using it at different places on the blade indicates clearly that it was crescent ground.

The etch, if there ever was one, has been ground away for some reason. Here's a pick showing grinder marks:
