It feels mighty in your hands and the click when you open or close it is highly satisfying. I like it better than the one Lee Valley sells. Both cut really well, but this one feels better in your hand because of the handle's heft.
As a first-time woodworker, I needed a saw that was good for pretty much everything, bulgur at a decent price. This saw proved to be excellent! Easy to use and creates very fine cuts at good speeds.
I actually bought this saw to replace an old one of the same. First the old one was great as well, until I broke the metal piece that locks the saw in open position, apparently from vibration. The new saw performs just as well as the old one but I like the handle of the old one better, it was just nicer looking and better feeling. The fact that the saw folds is fantastic for storage and transport. I recommend this saw for light work, but for longer rips it it less than ideal, although in some woods it works beautifully no matter the length of the cut. Anyway I recommend it, I’d buy it again, but I’m also looking at panel saws.
Great saw and addition to my shop. I seem to be reaching for it more and more.
Works great...Fit and finish aren't quite those of an heirloom tool. That said, I did by a second saw for my son because of its low cost and high functionality.
