That's brought back memories of my dad in his garden shed using something call a saw-set and some triangular shaped files to re-sharpen his saws, i guess that was before the word disposable was invented. Used to take him quite a while i recall.
Yep.
But once sharpened, they stayed sharp for a very long time, as opposed to the 'soft' steel used nowadays
 
Le Zing, a popular bar name in France. Oh, it's too complicated to tell you.
Anyway, here are a couple of lookers. (LOOKERS).

I have a carpenter who works for me, seen him kill a few blades trimming it down, they use Elm floorboards on Oak joists round here
It was Elm joists I was working on, they'd been in situ for about a century.

That's the way I was taught by my Grandfather. I wouldn't have a hardpoint saw in the tool box. All of mine are made by Disston. I also own a few Japanese pull saws as I prefer the thinner kerf on them.
A saw set. Used for setting the angles on the teeth.

Elm may be like cast iron but try this stuff. I was building a cabinet for a client and he wanted it built out of this because it "reminded him of Australia". One pass with a and and it was back to the sharpening stone!
