OK - I admit that this little hacksaw isn't going to win any beauty contests. It has a particularly unsual design which, by the way, is exactly what makes it so great.
Most hacksaws have a harp style frame, which takes a lot of room to work effectively. If the blade isn't adaquately supported however the blade will flex and most likely break. This saw offers the best of both worlds. It is open framed in the end so that you can work in tight areas without causing any colateral damage and it is closed framed in the middle section to provide strength and rigidity.
Be aware however that this tool is best stored hanging up. Throwing in your toolbox or tool drawer will cause damage to the exposed blade.
TOOL TIP FROM TUNED944
Keep your old Hacksaw blades. You can screw them down to a scrap piece of wood using the two holes located at the ends of the blade. Then slide a full piece of sandpaper under the blade. By pressing down on the blade with one hand and pull the sandpaper towards you with the other you can make a very effective paper cutter. Good Luck!
I haven't used this much but this one was helpful for reaching into those corner spots where the normal hacksaw couldn't reach because of it's bigger front size. It's a bit heavy though given it's size.

I bought this to get into a small space. The build quality is all right . . . the blade is designed to go past the frame, so I didn't expect much sturdiness. I got the job done, comes with the lifetime warranty, price is right.
This is a great tool for home or when camping. I bought this primarily to put in one of my RV toolboxes, but had to get a second for home use as well. This is great for those tight spots that a regular hack saw just won't work. Always check online prices - usually much less and I can pick up at my local Sears store for free!.

Bought this was on sale . Craftman brand life time warranty at Sears Easy to cut, special tiny space Used first time to fix sprinkler ( cut PVC pipe under ground) Good to have in your garage
Im afraid to use this product with the crapy clamping mechanism that is suppose to hold the blade in place. I have always been a diehard craftsman fan but the amount of products that they keep outsourcing to China will soon change that. This company needs to get back to its roots of providing quality made, American made products.

Glad to see the frame is cast aluminum but the blade retaining mechanism is just a serrated self-locking nut not a large surface area clamp. I've yet to use it to actually find out if the clamping method is an operational issue.
Overall for the price point of around $5, it is a good value. The ergonomics of the handle are a bit clunky with the squared corners and would not be a tool I would use all day if I had to make a living with it. For the occasional one off jobs around the house or shop, it is fine. It is cast aluminum and also made in China if that has any meaning for some. Blade changing is easy.
