The London pattern handle has suffered from having replacement screws fitted and the saw is probably second quality but the ‘makers name’ stamped on the plate was what really intrigued Tony.  Was there really a saw maker with such an appropriate name as I.Cutwell or is this a trade mark for one of the large Sheffield firms?
