If I'm reading this right I agree. I've seen the ones cut to look like a saw and I've seen ones that looked like they stuck a dowel in the end of the handle. They looked mass produced and cheaply done. A tapered shank would look better. All looked purpose made to me instead of being converted saw handles.The only ones I have seen, the guy cut a silhoutte of a saw handle and shaft out of one piece of pine. It looked about as classy as it sounds.
