Spear and Jackson saws coming in from Asia

Spear and Jackson saws of all types have appeared back on the eBay sites but these are not, repeat not Sheffield made tools. They do not say where they are made and they are looking good. I would test them if I wanted to promote Asian lines, which I do not. I have tested some newer USA makers and one or two have hit the mark with a good panel saw but even these with very nice wood and steel fall short. They are straight backed, an inferior retrograde step, and they are often not taper ground. If they go the extra mile and get that right they will understand why makers followed the recommendations of craftsmen to come up with an evolved saw decided by those that used them. They will have a good saw.
