Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance, awesome value Been using these for many years. The ultra fine teeth cut like a dream. It can be frustrating to use other kinds of saws after you become accustomed with this level of performance. It's almost embarrassing to watch other saws in action and that's no exaggeration. I cringe a little when I see others struggle to ply their trade with poorly fashioned instruments. I started out as a finish carpenter and this was my go-to tool for making all kinds of cuts. Now I build furniture and I always have two in my toolbox. One in perfect condition for finish cuts and one that I use with, how shall I say? Less care. However, the harshly treated one keeps cutting great through all the abuse I pile on, making an astonishing number of cuts in reclaimed and old hardwood, sometimes hitting nails and grit and generally taking whatever I throw at it like a champ. While living in Japan this past couple years, I have gradually replaced most of my saws with high end (fairly expensive) locally produced ones but I can't ever imagine my kit without this saw. It's an invaluable tool in my daily work routine. I have often made a gift of them to friends and family who have an interest in making things. After a little practice, they are always pumped when they start realizing what they can do with them.  There is a slight learning curve to using these thinner-bladed pull saws and I've broken some teeth and bent a couple because of impatience and/or poor technique. (Just bend 'em back and they still work fine) The benefits are recognizable from the first cut. My advice if you are new to this style of saw is to go slow at first and make a bunch of practice cuts in smaller softwood scraps. After a minute or two, you'll feel like a Jedi cutting that plastic imperial armor. Speaking of plastic, I do hate the hard plastic handle that comes with them these days. It's slippery. It looks and feels cheap making it seem like something you would find in a pharmacy's tool section. The grippy, rubber over-molded ones give better control and confidence especially with dry callused hands. They looked and felt more professional, inspiring confidence and higher value in the tool by the user. I'm sure the simple plastic is cheaper to produce but I overwhelmingly prefer the rubberized handles. Unfortunately, that means every time I get a new saw, I chuck the chincy handle and just switch out the blade. Cue the tiny violin for my sense of economy and the environment. That said, I do love all the delicious money I don't have to spend on these due to their incredible low cost, high performance and long life. I suppose the cheap handle is an inevitable part of that sad process of adjusting quality to bring those sales to profit margin lines right into that sweet spot in an economy fraught with rising costs and...I digress. On a related note, it would be nice to see replacement blades. I'm sure there are good reasons why they aren't offered but for those of us who use them daily, it would feel good to have a couple spare around without the cost, space, and waste of extra handles. It's a perception thing. I would pounce on an option package including two or three blades and a nice grippy over-molded handle. One conjecture is that the greatest manufacturing cost is in the blades (even more so now with the streamlined hard plastic handles) and so there may not be a justifiable perceived cost savings for the customer purchasing just blades. In addition, offering extra blades might further reduce perceived value and increase the impression of it being a highly consumable, short lived, sacrificial tool. So yeah...possibly answered my own gripe. Also, while they surely care about every one of their products, it may be possible that this one small saw may not be the exact center and crucial pillar of Irwin's financial future. Anyway, it takes no time at all to become an indispensable part of your repertoire and will instantly become a permanent resident of any tool box. Any? Ok, maybe not a pediatrist's tool box. Unless that pediatrist also makes custom leather shoes for their clients and needs to trim the custom wooden lasts (foot forms) around which each shoe is crafted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product Love this saw use it on all my products. Hate the fact I can not find replacement blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very impressed with the ease of use and price of the saw. Been using it to trim overhangs on box joints and can remove 1/32" overhang without scoring the box itself. Excellent results for a low price tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replacement Blades I use this little saw for everything, PVC, tubing, tree limbs and also wood cutting. I use it so much I have 12 handles laying around. Why make the blade removable if you can't replace it? good product would be outstanding if you could buy blades...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great saw, but no replacement blades... This saw is fantastic for what i use it for, which is dovetails on small projects, and detail blockout on small to medium sized woodcarvings... I would give it a 5 if i could find replacement blades for it. I abuse this saw like crazy, but like anything else it eventually wears down. Where can i get replacement blades for this model???......????? Researched, but found none. Totally stumped

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where can I find replacement blades? I use this saw more than I thought I would. however I have never found a replacement blade in stores or online. You would think that because the handle / blade are detachable that they make one. I do not recommend buying this saw, until blades become available.
