The Disstonian Institute

In the 1940s, an estimated 75 percent of all handsaws sold in the United States were Disstons. Erik von Sneidern’s comprehensive site on the famous Philadelphia saw maker explains why, and includes numerous photos of the handsaws, back saws, and keyhole saws that capture each tool’s distinguishing features. Especially helpful for collectors are the pages on Disston saw medallions, from the 1840s to the 1950s, which are a fast way to date a vintage saw.
