    Hi Rob! Welcome to the forums!

    Those saws look awesome. What material did you use for the first saw's back?

    Thanks Al, The top saw has a stainless steel back. The half back is 1/8" brass. Both are folded - not slotted as many custom makers do these days.

    Thanks Doc, nice to meet you. Here's some more pictures. I slow with processing the images to be small enough to post here, not my strong suit. These are the balance of a batch of four that I'm finishing right now.

    I like the look of those handles. Made for comfort I'd say
