Stanley FatMax Fine Finish Toolbox Saw 15"
Good saw but the teeth broke after 3 monthes use and the price is a bit high for a small saw

Really good quality handsaw
Trying to keep costs down I bought this instead of a mitre / chopsaw to hand-cut parts for my kitchen. I had concerns though that a handsaw would chew up the edges of the gloss finish. My concerns grew when I checked out the teeth @ 11tpi - no way would they ensure a smooth finish surely (despite what other reviews said...).
How wrong was I - the finish you can get from this saw was a match for, and sometimes exceeded, the finish on the cut edges as they came from the factory (plinths in gloss white). I was amazed and this was entirely down to the saw.
I did have a chuckle at the size of it - be prepared ;-) - but it was exactly what I needed.
A great addition to any toolkit!

Superior Cutting Quality
I've previously used budget toolbox sized saws but have found the blades generally thin and bendy with the saw struggling to cut through any sort of harder wood.
Stanley solve these issues on a number of fronts. Firstly they make the blade much wider-hence the name, 'FatMax' giving much more stability during use. Secondly, the handle is ergonomically designed with a comfortable rubberised hand grip all bolted together at three points rather than the usual two.
Finally, the cutting edge is is the classic Stanley triple edge which will munch through most woods, laminate and plastic. Great value, and superior cutting quality. Highly recommended.
