#15066 - English Imported Amputation Bone Saw
This is a Civil War era long bone amputation saw which was made by the "W.H. Hutchinson" company of Sheffield, England. Many fine instruments were imported during the Civil War. Something from England could even have been brought into the South by blockade runners. This has slight stippling on a solid, intact blade. Firm in grip. The handle has nice impressed logos on both sides: company name, crown and logo. Blade solid in grip. Sadly, the bottom of the wood grip was split off. (Maybe sawing off a leg too hard?) Still a nice example of a bone-cutting instrument that has "been there" in the blood & guts.
