Help identifying partial etch - Ideal

Post by Phiz » October 22nd, 2021, 3:40 pm

Picked up an "art project" with the etch painted over, the other side was varnished. Removed some of the paint and got the partial etch:

Any ideas?

Can make out IDEAL,
Warrented, Patent, Ground, <something> Steel
Made In the USA

Never sharpened. Teeth seem small, the total length is 47 inches and about 6 inches tall at the handle.

Got my first winter project!

Painted saws can be in better shape then non-painted saws. I do not recognized the logo.

You can get an idea how long the teeth were originally by the shape of the rounded edge near the handle end. When new the teeth would have been the same height as that rounded part. Also you can see that the teeth have been filed down more and are shorter near then midsection of the saw then the ends. Even though it has seen a lot of use could be sharpened up and be a good user saw.

My wife found the same font and the rising sun mark for a Farwell, Ozmun, Kirk Co little handsaw. Pretty sure mine says "Cast Steel".
