Simonds manufactured handsaws between the early 1900’s and 1926. All Simonds used Warranted Special Crucible Steel, Simonds Patented Temper, and are taper ground. Simonds did not make distinctions between cast steel, refined cast steel, London spring steel, extra refined London spring steel, etc., like Disston did, but clearly the more expensive saws, like "Blue Ribbon”, used a higher quality steel than the cheaper saws. The Catalog includes catalogs, saws, saw blades, files, saw sets, swages, saw jointers, speed indicators, cane knives, machine knives, etc.
