Sandvik 928

This is a vintage Sandvik AB 928 bucking saw.
I was not able to find any vintage catalog of Sandvik products so I can't date the saw.

Length: 5" (1525 mm)
width: 142 mm (could have been 6" new)
thk at teeth: 0.075" (1.9 mm)
thk back mid. : 0.047" (1.2 mm)
thk back ends: 0.055" (1.4 mm)
raker spacing: 3" (76 mm)
The saw is crescent ground.

I found this saw in rather good condition, except the teeth that where in bad shape. A lot of work to get everything back in order.
Set 0.012". Rakers at 0.008" left unswaged because of pitting on the tips. The saw cuts very well and smooth in dry birch and oak where I tested it.
