these are usually for a type of saw with interchangeable handles or you struck lucky with unfinished companysaws.You should be able to make handles to fix with glue and dowels and a bolt where the slot is IMHO Alistair

Just cut it to whatever shape or angle you want and make a handle.

Here are some templates for making handles. There’s lots of information out there about how to make them, but here’s a backsaw project where I saw the link to the templates from. Short version of course is use whatever tools you have at hand to shape the handle the way you like it.

Toby, that link doesn’t work for me.

Those are standard nesting saw blades. You can make the handle any shape you like but originally they are made to look like this one. There are a few different blade cutout types – yours has the offset hole on the bottom so if you make a handle the sawnut that’s on the left in my pic would be slightly lower but otherwise it’s the same idea – you just loosen both nuts slightly, slide the blade on in, lift it straight into position and tighten the two nuts. Or you could put new holes in them and make them into backsaws like in the links provided above.
