These are my first set of saws, I made a dovetail and a tenon saw. The have maple backs, the dovetails is carved. I set the backs with a .20 slitting saw blade and stainless pins to lock it in. I worked through lots of handle designs before I picked one I thought was comfortable. I had a laser engraver make a stamp for me to create my coin with my logo on it that I put in medallion nut. I have plans to make quite a few more of them as they are very fun to make, but I have to find the time.

These came out great. I like the fancy details and I’ll bet they cut well. Where did you get the bolts/nuts?

The coin in the medallion is made from copper. I used a precious metal clay and then fired it so it is kind of like a penny, but it was a little more expensive that 1 cent to make ;)
