Crosscut saw

A two-person saw with a large toothed metal blade and adjustable handles on both ends. This 'Maple Leaf 170' crosscut saw was taken on Mackenzie family hunting trips. It was carefully placed in the bottom of a toboggan to avoid damaging the blade. Used for bucking or cutting logs into sections for building structures such as tent platforms.
