Some years ago we were in an antique dealer's shed on the outskirts of somewhere on Shikoku and he had a lot of big old timber saws like these. I remember thinking what amazing shapes they were and that they would look wonderful just hanging on a wall. We didn't buy any that day but Takashi did end up sending me quite a few. I thought we'd sold them all but last week found these three hiding away. The ones we've sold so far were mostly bought by woodworkers to clean up, sharpen and use. I still think they'd look good hanging on a wall as well.
