Saws for All Uses
Spear & Jackson are always seeking means to improve their

polishing and in general workmanship.
As the word suggests, we claim that these Saws are not only
an improvement on the previous well-known Spear & Jackson
quality, but are superior to any other saws on the market.
Exclusive Spear & Jackson processes are employed in the
hardening and tempering, and for grinding and polishing,
entirely new machinery has been invented and installed,
giving a more accurate and more uniform taper and a better
