Yes, Crown is an English firm and I think they make decent saws too. £26 isn’t a bad price for a 12″ tenon saw 🙂
In spite of having tickets, I narrowly missed out on Harrogate this year due to family commitments, but hope to make next year’s show.
With a little patience, older saws can be found comparatively cheaply and quite often in pristine condition.
Brands are many and varied, but the ones I seek out (In the UK) tend to be by;
Spear & Jackson e.g. “Professional”, “88”, “Spearior” with reinforced handles …….. Avoid “Workhorse” as they’re not taper ground blades, were badly handled and notorious for binding in the cut.
Tyzack e.g. “Nonpareil”
Disston e.g. D7, D8, etc.
