Irwin Jack Evo Universal Hand Saw 21"
Bought this to replace the one we had bought 3-4yrs ago we have used to saw anything with a wood content and was brilliant, it sawed through a thick work top with ease. A fantastic saw!!!!!

A cut above
As a less than able-bodied DIY-er I have always struggled to use a hand saw for long but this has to be the exception.
Having read other reviews I thought I would give the Irwin Jack saw a try and I am very glad I did. The unorthodox design of the saw blade is actually something of a breakthrough and seems to reduce the amount of effort required for the cut by placing the hand more in line with the teeth.
I managed to slice 22mm flooring chipboard very cleanly indeed and without the usual aches and pains following. This saw is sharp, stays sharp and keeps a good cut line so I thoroughly recommend it.

Fast sawing but not rigid
The saw really cuts through wood quickly, amazingly quick BUT on all wood types I've cut so far I cannot cut a straight cut top to bottom. So I get a curved cut. Whether it's soft pine or chipboard it's the same, I carefully saw but the flimsy blade ends up going at an angle and you get quick unsquare cuts.
Such a shame as it's so sharp and fast a cutting. I will perservere but not had this trouble in the last 30 years of sawing with othe saws.

Delighted with this saw.
Cuts with minimum effort and does not wander
off line. I'm very pleased with this excellent value
