These saws are reproduced out of metal. Nine and a Quarter Inches (9 1/4). They are lighter and not sharp like the real ones but look just like them. I paint these with oils and apply a sealer over each one. You can see more of my work at mountaincrafts.net. I am listing several that I am not painting anymore..so check back often! This is the one you are buying. Only selling through the 30th of November!! Taking December off!!
