    I got this saw a while ago. Thought it is interesting. The handle is adjustable; can swivel up and down. There is a “Ord Dept. U.S.A.” stamped in the handle, which leads me to believe it has military origin. The blade is also very thick and stiff compared to most of the other saws I have; another sign of military origin?

    The adjustment nut is a standard wing nut. I don’t know if it was original, or the original was replaced. It doesn’t seem to match the other nut.

    Does anyone have any information on this type of saw?
