11 1/2" broad saw back spatulate blade of thin wedge section weakly marked W & C JOHNSON PHILA / CAST STEEL. The back with cross cut saw tooth edge. The teeth forming a flat outside surface and alternately beveled within the edge (rather than "set" as with a wood saw). Beveled edge beaver tail wood grip over full profile tang, luxury. Construction as expected for medical instruments. The grip with wear and stains but the blade near crisp as expected for medical use. Philadelphia made, but could have served either side as all medical instruments were produced in the North or England. Amputation was the universal treatment for limb wounds as the result minimized infection for which there was no treatment and gangrene follows.
