We’re fans of Black & Decker’s Handisaw — but that’s not what we’re talking about here.  This is a powered version of a good ‘ole hand saw.  Admittedly, at first glance we wondered why there’s a need for this kind of tool, but then wondered if maybe it wouldn’t be useful for homeowners who’re cutting a few 2x4s.

What say you?  Cool tool or junk?  Check out the link below and let us know in comments what you think.

    dumb. what does this give me that a sawsall or circ saw doesn’t? besides a potentially broken wrist as a knot in the wood jerks the tool out of my hands.

  2. From looking at this in the store, I think it’s supposed to be a Sawzall with a permanent blade, or something. Looks like it’s a covert campaign to sell more Sorbothane gloves, actually, cuz that thing’s gonna vibrate like there’s no tomorrow.

    Junk.
    Why would B&D ever go through the trouble to make this, when recip saws are way more of a “proven” saw I guess you’d say..? I cannot even imagine why they made this. Just stupid to me. Maybe I just don’t see the utility in comparison? I just don’t get it.

    Looks like something my wife would “surprise” me with, bless her heart. I dont buy b&d since they made aluminum bodied made in usa tools prior to becoming a target and wallmart chinese import, but i must confess, the concept is ok because there are some jobs that can not be done by me without a hand saw and that really tires out my arm. It is difficult to follow a nice line for notchouts with a sawzall, and i could have use one of these to speed up the last sawhorse i made with handsaw, chisels and planes and more time than i’d care to admit!

    What can this do that a reciprocating saw can not? They even have blades for the reciprocating saw that are made for pruning…….
