This small saw is very easy to use and makes very precise cuts, it also bends to cut flush with dowel pegs for example.

These are brilliant, once you use a pull saw you won't want any other kind of saw. These are so sharp and accurate. Just mind your fingers!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by HughB Lightweight, small and sharp
I bought this as my inherited tenon saw is a bit blunt and chunky for some precise cuts I wanted to make. Overall the saw feels small and lightweight in the hand but is reassuringly effective when cutting wood especially when cutting the across the grain. It's less satisfying when cutting with the grain, seeming to struggle a bit. The blade is thin which is ideal for sharp-edged cuts.
Most practise cuts seem to deviate inwards but i reckon that's my poor technique and not a fault of the saw.
It has a blade release button so the handle can be re-used when blade is blunt but I can't find any replacement blades for sale anywhere. Not even on the Irwin website. There is a plastic edge protector that comes with that saw which is a nice touch.
I'm happy with the saw for now, but I would spend more on a larger, more refined one next time.
