Disston started as the Keystone Saw Works outside Philadelphia PA. The company was very innovative and was world renown for high quality industrial and consumer saws.  <br />
In the early 1950s, with mounting debt and lack of family interest to keep the business going, the family sold the business to H.K. Porter in 1955.
