Three older backsaws, two with oak, and one with Black Walnut for handles. Thumbhole D8 was a repair job, bottom 1/2” was missing. lastly, a 8 point crosscut with a Sycamore ( I think it is) handle. There used to be a Plywoodie handle there instead. Blades have been cleaned up. 8 point was sharpened, as well.

Very nice, I have two saw handles on my project list. What thickness material did you use?
