Surely whoever made that could have found better screws?

Not if they were silver, but certainly ordinary id they were steel (could be stainless steel too). Difficult to tell from the pic. I have seen brass saw screws advertised on Ebay and for all the world look as if they are steel. I also think that the back and screws should be made from matching material. Whilst the carving is "interesting" and technically accomplished, it does not look as though it would be comfortable to hold.

Stop being a show off in class,
ďBelieve it or not, this saw was made for a special young lady, Princess Victoria. According to the description, it is "... an Exhibition Saw made by Taylor Brothers, Saw Manufacturers, Adelaide Works, Sheffield, as a wedding present for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Princess Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa on the occasion of her marriage to Friedrich Willhelm, Crown Prince of Prussia."
This I pinched from my Facebook site

Matt. That is freaking awesome!!!!! Love the handle and the spine is even better. And to think I was worried when I saw the thread title and who was posting. What timber and what did you use for saw nuts? And what is that vice?

Last first, the Metal vice is combination vice, at present i have the jaws running horizontal, when the jaws are slack you can turn them through 360 degrees.
When you tighten the jaws the whole thing tightens up.
I got this one second hand from a Swap meet years ago, but there still available new.
I wouldnít leave home with out one[emoji851].
The Saw nuts I made my self when I was I aloud to roam freely between my Smelly Melbourne residence an my Steel Palace in Ballarat Iím quite PÖ.. about that at present, but this is not a political forum.
Now your last question regarding what the Timber is ,well I have know idea!!! I thought it was Silk Oak but the bigger boys here thinks it Myrtle Beech.
So just because Iím gutless I will go with what the big boys say[emoji6].
