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!

It's a great little hacksaw to add to your collection of tools. It works well in tight spaces. The only issue I notice the blades don't hold tight in the aluminum handle. However it's a quick fix. I found that tapping small treaded hole in end handle to match hole in the blades paired with small bolt holds the blade firm and resolved resolved that issue entirely.
Saw body is nice. Sandblasted aluminum. Blade clamp is one screw/nut and a undercut piece on the handle arm. Undercut is too large for included, or aftermarket hacksaw blades. Blades are not held in tool, only guided by nut/screw. If this defect was addressed it would be a good tool, regardless of origin country.

This little guy is very useful in tight places or when you need to make a quick cut and do not want to get out somethng bigger. I've already used this in a handful of situations where I don't know what I would have done otherswise.

This hacksaw is so handy. it gets into spots a regular hacksaw can't. I've been able to do so many more things now that I have this special little tool as part of my toolbox of tools.

I was very surprised how lightweight this hack saw is. I was expecting solid steel but instead found the weight to be more in line with solid aluminum - definitely a plus. The blade is adjustable and tightens by a set screw clamping on the blade - it doesn't screw through the blade. This means this hack saw is for light duty use.

Thought it would be good just to have, needed it the next day. Handle seems nicely constructed (cast metal) but not thrilled with the mounting of blade- just sandwiched between the handle an a nut. Could have been better.
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.
