Topic tags/keywords: question hand saw

so i got a few hand saws a little while ago and i was wondering if anyone can tell me a bit about a few of them. one is a Slack and Sellars no. 78b. i’ve only really found out is they are a latter version of Slack Sellars and Grayson, and that they have been around since about 1857. Another one is a Mibro back saw i don’t really have any other info on it but it works great. the rest are all Diston saws and i’ve found plenty on them. there is 3 of them in total including a pacemaker rip saw. i have had a few of them sharpened and they work like a dream so if anyone can tell me a little more it would be much appreciated.
