Growing up in Paul Bunyan country, I remember seeing antique two-man saws on display in many businesses around town. I used to picture lumberjacks a century ago, knee-deep in snow, hacking away at a 4-foot diameter tree trunk with one of these saws — no gas, no electricity, just pure muscle.
This 4-foot long two-man saw from Putsch won’t be handling any 4-foot diameter trees, but the concept of two people using raw muscle to section a tree is the same. It’s good to know that somewhere out there folks are still using these saws.
The blade of the Putsch two-man saw measures 48″ and with the 8-1/2″ hardwood handles the whole saw spans some 52″. The German blade is hand hammered and hand sharpened. It’ll run you $105 to have this saw shipped to your door, or more probably the door of your cabin.
