Nice saw for tenons

This is a nice saw for woodworkers looking to cut their own tenons for mortise and tenon joints.  This saw has just enough TPI (teeth per inch) that it doesn't cut too fast and ripping the wood or cutting too slow with little cutting progress.  Sure, it doesn't compete with the high end blades, but this is perfect for the novice woodworker looking to learn the basics of cutting tenons.  I think that this is a great saw to start out with due to its affordability and its good cutting speed. 

I highly recommend this saw to the novice woodworker.

Compared to the older Craftsman saw I was hoping to replace, this saw just doesn't cut it. Average at best it's smaller and thinner in every way but length. May get a buck in sywr points for the review but am not biased by such.

A saw shaped object

First: description is wrong. This is a backsaw, not a japanese style saw Now that that is mentioned, it really isn't a backsaw. It is a backsaw shaped object. A saw back has several features not found here, the principal one being straightness. Additionally, the back is intended to tension the blade to keep it straight and provide weight to the saw. The 'back' on this fails on all accounts. A saw should also have teeth that cut the intended material, such as wood. This requires that they be a) sharp, b) the correct form, and c) properly set. Again, fail 3 for three. Teeth were not sharpened. They were as punched. The set was done with the punch (a not uncommon economy today....) so the set was to only one side. The saw will 'cut' a nice curve in two axes until it binds. The as punched form is also neither a crosscut nor a rip tooth. Why did I buy this thing after seeing this? I needed a thin sawplate to make up a custom stair saw, and this did not have induction hardened teeth, so sharpening/retoothing should be ok. Next problem: the plate is not consistent in hardness. Some spots file fine, others are glass hard. Not even usable as stock to make a real tool out of....

A very good big saw for cutting trees, wood, cardboard, etc.

You can use this to clean up your backyard of all the unwanted weeds, roots, shrubs, etc. It's quite big though so your arm will tire fast but it's very sharp and does the job if you have the muscles for it. Electric ones can be dangerous to use especially if you have children around.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Old Model used to be good

I just picked up one of these at Sears yesterday that I bought online. I had looked at them in the store a few months back, and the ones then were made in the US and looked like a good saw. When I got home I took a look at the one I got and discovered that it has no "Made in USA" markings anywhere (translation production has shifted over to the big "C"), and the teeth were complete junk. The US made saws I had looked at had a nicely cut teeth with a good alternating set, and were nicely ground sharp. In contrast on the saw I got it appeared that the all the teeth were simply cut into the sheet metal of the blade in a single action by a sheer, with little effort made to set them. The worst part though was that they looked (and felt) to have received no sharpening at all! The rest of the saw looked to be built decently, but that matters very little when teeth are this crappy. Looking on Sear's site I noticed that none of my local stores have this saw in stock (I had hoped to pick up an older better made version), which also points to production having been curtailed in the US and having been moved to China. If you can find the older US made version I would recommend it, I've used my father's one and it always worked well. This newer version is just junk. I will be returning mine.
