This Henry Disston saw plate with an inchworm name stamp and the initials H.D. (for Henry Disston) stamped on the heel needed a new handle. I figure the saw dates to the early 1850s and was probably made by old Henry himself. I made the new handle out of figured Norway maple that I cut on my sawmill three years ago. I think Henry would approve of how it turned out.
