Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mandrill Brilliant Saw
Have used pullsaws for years now and wouldn't change back. Cuts are superb and can follow lines exactly even if work is only held by hand in awkward situations. Fine finish on cut means that no extra work is needed, saving time. On rip cuts with changing grain or knots, a simple flip round to the reverse blade gets you through anything without the fuss of changing tools. Fits in a small tool kit when taken apart. Just like any other tool, protect the teeth from knocks in your kit and from stray nails/screws in the workpiece and it will stay sharp and last a decent time giving good value.

Great saw. Flexible for flush trimming yet cuts fast, clean and true when used for normal cuts. Handle and blade separate making it easy to carry in a toolbox. The pulling action is very easy when you do not have the luxury of working on a bench. The only down side is the double edge blade, where the coarse toothed edge is an incongruity, and always has the potential for mishaps. Of all my tools, this is the one that has nicked me the most.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by OldPilot Saw of Damocles
As a woodturner, I regularly have to finish off by turning to a small spigot and saw off my work. I usually use expensive Japanese saws but was very impressed with this saw getting close to the work without scratching and so sharp, it only took 2 pulls to go through1/4 " spigot. (Too early to give an accurate reliability rating.)

Brilliant tool! Used them for years I've just bought a replacement as the old one was getting a little blunt, it's done a lot of work though!
OK, you do have to be careful because of the double edge, but touch wood I haven't done myself a mischief yet!
It makes those awkward cuts easy, even if it's difficult to hold the wood rock steady. Also great for plastic conduit, pipe and upvc cloaking etc.
The handle comes off and with the blade protectors in place it fits into even a small a toolbag a treat.
