You will find the cover-top handle design on the very first D8 saws Disston made. They later included the cover-top design on some of their other models like the D23 and most of their saws post 1928, even their D-12,s. When you look at the top front of the handle you don't see the edge of the blade through the handle.
Sorry, thought you were using that No.7 handle for a rip saw. My bad.
Is the "cover top" design the same as a "let in" design?
