Crosscut saw

Crosscut saw

A saw with a large toothed metal blade and adjustable handles on both ends. This Maple Leaf 170 crosscut saw was taken on hunting trips to the barrenlands by placing it in the bottom of a toboggan to avoid damaging the blade. The two-man saw was used for bucking or cutting logs into sections for building structures and tent platforms.
