Harvey Peace Back Saws

Harvey Peace and the Vulcan Saw Works produced several varieties of back saws. Early Peace back saws feature split-nuts and sunken style medallions similar to other saws of the period. Later Peace back saws are easily distinguished by their handle. Most Peace-made saws feature a saw nut through the spine, as seen in the photos below. This feature seems to be limited to three New York area saw makers- Peace, Richardson, and E.M. Boynton.
