So this was my first saw. I really didn’t like the handle, and after ripping the first leg for my cabinet I was less than enchanted with the blade. I resharpened the blade but still didn’t like the handle. After scouring the web / YouTube, I decided to update the saw with my own handle. Blackburn tools supplied the hardware and the template was from TGIAG.com and is a Disston Warranted Superior Crosscut template. The handle was from what I was pretty sure was walnut. BLO and paste wax finish. I had a moment of significant doubt when I was chipping and hacksawing off the previous handle, but I am very pleased with the results.

The saw looks great. Thanks for sharing all your parts suppliers-I am just entering the slippery slope of handsaws and will hopefully restore one this year.

Thanks all! Working on my frame saw (parts from the same supplier). Looking forward to finishing that.
