Atkins No. 400 and No. 401 Hand Saws

The Nos. 400 and 401 were Atkins' finest saws, and the only ones made with rosewood handles. They had more taper grind and more polished blades than Atkins' next-best saws. The Nos. 400 and 401 were priced 63% higher in 1937 than the mid-priced Nos. 51 and 53. No other Atkins saws had tropical wood handles. 1950 is last year for which I found Atkins No. 400 advertisements.

  1. Hello
    Must tell you that I have received a necklace jewelry for my grandmother's necklace!
    It is one of your saws that you have manufactured in your factory.
    Now I'm about to manufacture jewelry, most rings.
    The saw is of silver and I now wonder if these are manufactured than in the company?
    I will try to send a good picture of the saw so that you can see how it looks.
    with warm greetings Patric Wallström / Sweden
