Craigslist find: Harvey Peace P45 and a Bishop blade - pic heavy
#9
  Re: (...)
I saw a craigslist ad that said "Old Saws" so I checked it out. I found a Bishop blade that has a strong etch, straight and plenty of blade left. The catch of the night was a Harvey Peace P45 which has the Emanuel Andrews patented handle. There's a couple pics of the handle showing how the blade is let in further to the handle.

If anyone knows anything else about these, please share.
I've included a link to some info I found.
HarveyPeaceP45

It has a rosewood handle that's a little chewed on and the blade was poorly sharpened over its lifetime. Plenty of calves and cows on that toothline. It's mostly straight by I'm a little worried about restoring it. the steel can get pretty brittle on something this old.

Pat,
I have the P35 (listed on the same website)which is virtually the same although a beech handle. Josh has the 45 listed as Mahogany in one place and Rosewood in another. Not sure but either way ya kinda suck!

Very uncommon saw.

yeah, I saw the mahogany/rosewood thing after I posted. Upon closer inspection, I think it is mahogany as the catalog says.
