THE saw for quick cutting in the landscape or campsite

I have been landscaping my home for years now and maintenance requires tools that get the job done. After buying this bow saw I was able to retire my carpenter saws cause the bow saw is much, much quicker.

A bow saw is a relic from the past that our modern society has forgotten but thanks to new super sharp blades these are making a popular comeback. Due to the shape of the handle they are ambidextrous and can be grabbed and held in more than one position.

New blades have a more open tooth design and teeth are set so that these saws cut on the back stroke as compared to the digging front stroke of a hand saw. This requires much less effort on your part. Strokes per cut limb compared to a traditional saw will be much less. Tradition cut processes may still apply for large limbs. Cut the underside of the limb half through and further out than your finished length, then cut on top and further in a little until the limb falls. Then go back and make a clean cut entirely through the diameter and finish off with pruning sealer or mud.

These saws work equally well for limbs already on the ground or used in conjunction with saw horses. Matter of fact..be careful because these blades are wicked sharp ! Additionally these blades will go a lifetime without a need for sharpening if care is used.

The handle shape of the bow saw makes it much easier to find a "hanging" place while working and the saw is light in weight. Blades changes quickly without additional tools and blades are available in differant tooth numbers. Changing them takes seconds.

If you are a camping enthusiast then these saws will make quick work of your need for firewood on the campsite and take much less effort than a axe and are much safer.

The many uses, the weight, and the cutting speed make this saw well worth a spot in your shed or trunk. Highly recommended.

Great Bow Saw

Great little bow saw for the price. Quality is decent, and the blade it comes with is super sharp and goes through green tree branches with ease.

Handy saw

This is a handy saw to have for those smaller limbs when you really dont want to take the time to get the power saw out.

A decent saw

I got this to cut down or trim some trees in my yard. The blade is sharp, but it wobbles sometimes. For the price it was a steal, so I am not complaining. It still gets the job done, but they're better saws available. Just not at this low of a price.

Sweet little saw

Super sharp bow saw. While I've only used the saw a couple of times, it goes thru limbs and branches like a hot knife thru butter.

Great saw

<p>This is a lightweight saw and very useful.  It's more of a ripping saw as the teeth are large.  The handle is comfortable and easy to use.  For $3.50, it wa a steal.</p>

great design

<p>I love the shape of this one.  It lets me get into places where i could not have reached before.  It feels sturdy in the hand and at the same time has a comfortable grip.  I am looking forward to using this one for years to come.</p>

Great inexpensive saw!

This is a simple 21&quot; bow saw that any home owner or outdoorsman should have. I use mine while setting up treestand for bow hunting. It is very light weight, easy to transport, and is simple to use. This saw has a very sharp blade which cuts very fast. This saw can be used by anyone with relative ease, changing a blade is just as simple. This saw is great for limbing trees and for some couldbe an alternative to a small chainsaw and is easier and safer to use. This is a great saw for anyone!

Excellent craftsman bow saw for the price

<p>This bow saw works great. I use it around my house to cut off branches of pine trees. Does pretty much everything that you would expect from a bow saw. If the blade dulls or breaks from some reason its very easy to replace.</p>
<p>Its a great bow saw to have around the house for a typical home owner or someone that goes camping. I've had this saw for about 3 years and its perfect for what I need it for. I liked it so much I bought an extra for my house and just use the old one strictly for camping. I would say buy this saw just to have around the house because if you have some kind of tree you will eventually use it.</p>
<p>If it odes break its covered by the craftsman lifetime warranty.</p>

If you have trees or large shrubs, this Bow Saw is a GTH.

<p>It's a good thing there is competition for I would pay much more for a bow saw as is it one of handiest tools I own--it's definitely a Got To Have (GTH). Many times, I know I'm on the edge of abusing my lopper and I quickly pull out the bow saw to take care of that limb that is just a mite too big for pruning or lopping--and the cut is cleaner. Almost effortless sawing through large limbs and light weight, I have used it many times when my chain saw might have been used. I've even taken off the blade and put the bow around an adjoining limb or post in order to get the right angle/position on a cut. And it's great for cutting almost flush to the ground as well.</p>

Good alternative to a chain saw

<p>Used this to clear up a fallen tree cutting limbs up to 10&quot; in diameter. It's definitely worth having around - especially when they go on sale at $3.</p>
