Atkins Company began manufacturing of handsaws sometime at the
end of 1890s. The first advertisement for handsaws we were able
to find is
dated to 1899. We don't know specific reasons for this
"late" start, but the business of logging saws and other tools
must have been good enough for Atkins to assure business growth
since 1857 without production of handsaws.
are some examples of handsaws made by Atkins.
