Rated 5 out of 5Â by CraftyPhil Superb bit of kit!
Bought this to cut some branches from trees in our garden which I couldn't get at with a bow saw. Superb! It's cuts on the push and pull stroke. Razor sharp is not an exaggeration, although only time will tell as to how long it stays that way. On the basis of use so far, I would recommend this to anyone. Along with the superb Screwfix purchasing experience, no complaints so far.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by tangler loose blade
Several revues have referred to the fact that the blade can come loose. I presumed that the need to be able to loosen the blade was to fit a replacement to the handle if the blade became worn or damaged. However, I could not find any reference to replacement blades either from Screwfix or even from Spear & Jackson direct.
I contacted S&J about this and was told "In the unlikely event that your blade was to break or become faulty, a spare blade would be available from ourselves and supplied with our compliments. Unfortunately they are not available to purchase."
That begs the question, 'why bother to have a system where the blade is removable if spares are so difficult to obtain'? The blade may as well be fixed permanently to he handle.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rbho Really sharp saw
This saw cuts green wood upto 100mm thick with ease. It is larger than I expected but is very well made and comfortable to use

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TIMCS Leylandii cutting made easy
After trying a few products (shears, saws, hedge cutter, chainsaw - and nothing really working thought i'ld try these. Amazing quality and once you are through the outer greenery this makes light work of all upper trunks / branches. What has been a week long job became a days work :)
