A Quick Guide to The Differences In Our Saws

I know how difficult it can be looking at different products and wondering what the difference is between them and why they are all priced so differently... You may think a saw is just a saw, but in our world, this is simply not the case!

There are many different aspects to our saws which make them different to each other, some just minor differences but does mean we can offer them at different price levels.

My Key Features guide will highlight the key feature on each product so you can focus on these more easily. What must be reiterated is that ALL of our saws are high quality and can be re-sharpened (not applicable to some of the very small toothed, small saws such as Razor Saw) and so much of the decision on what saw to buy does come down to personal preference and budget.
