Bahco Barracuda Hard Point Handsaw 22"
This is a fantastic saw, it is so sharp that the problem is if you don't keep it square in the slot you will score the sides of the cut. Sharp, robust and well balanced, overall a truely trade level performer at not too bad a price.

Best handsaws around
I'm a carpenter and have been using these for years. Tried various other brands/prices and Barracuda win hands down. they simply last longer. The balance in your hand is just right. same old story if you hit a nail though ;-)
I'd say buy the 22" rather than 20" to stop it jumping out of the cut. am just about to buy another. Expected usable time is around a month on site and longer if you then use it as a plasterboard saw.

Better Than Average
Hardpoint saws are often much of a muchness I feel, but this Bahco is a nice stiff saw which is easy to keep in line and isn't prone to bend when it hits a knot or sticky bit of wood. Can't rate its reliability but as long as I don't hit any nails I expect it will be fine. Certainly much better than the cheap throwaway hardpoints which flap all over the place when working fast. The stiffness makes it easy to use the whole length of the blade so you get on more quickly.
