Irwin Jack Evo Universal Hand Saw 21"
Bought the saw to get a fine finish on gloss white kitchen panels, worked a treat, minimal effort, a good clean cut

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.
