Hand Saw for Wood: Craftsmanship Meets Precision
Hand saws can be used in various woodworking and DIY projects that require cutting wood, plastic, and other materials.
Hand saws can cut on the push or downstroke or on the pull or upstroke, which makes it easier to start a cut and helps remove the cut material quicker.
