What’s Great About This Saw?

This saw is very easy to handle for just about any type of cutting job around the house. It’s small enough that you can get into tight spaces and make quick work of them. The blade is super sturdy and will stay true for up to 1,000 cuts. It’s also really easy to change out the blade for a new one. The saw does have a plastic body, but it’s pretty durable and has a nice grippy texture, so it won’t slip out of your hands easily. The saw is also great for cutting pipes in half.
