Well, it was a long time coming, but I finally finished this saw.
It has 13 teeth per inch, filed rip at a 0 degree rake angle. It cuts smoothly, but not super-quickly, as one would expect for a saw of this size and pitch. The finish on the handle turned out pretty well. I guess it had better, after, what was it, 10 coats of varnish?
And even though this one is done, there’s another one for a 16″ tenon saw in the works.
Those tools to the left are the Shinto saw rasp and the Gramercy sawmaker’s rasp.
