Modifying A Kobalt Handsaw

I watched a YouTube video where a man recommended getting a Kobalt handsaw from Lowes for $11.  It is a saw blade that can be resharpened too.  He demonstrated how well it cut versus some other low cost handsaws.  I decided to try it out.  It is 12 teeth per inch and I sharpened the teeth to a rip cut profile.  He was right, it was terrific!  What a great deal for $11!  With care, this will last for a very long time because it can always be resharpened.  The only thing I did not care for was the plastic handle so I made a wood one.
I got a pattern for a Disston miterbox saw handle from tgia.  Here is the result:
