Emson claims their “As Seen on TV” MXZ Pocket Saw cuts though almost anything — metal, bricks, wood, and maybe even tomatoes. I’m a bit skeptical of all infomercial tools, but this three-position locking saw blade with a tungsten carbide edge “that never needs sharpening” still caught my eye.
Of course, one of the positions is closed. And the MXZ’s strange sandpaper-like carbide is impossible to sharpen – even if one day it doesn’t cut well. Still, its aluminum handle looks beefy, but comfortable. The MXZ’s “amazing blade” also appears to take the same shape as a Sawzall blade, so you might be able to switch it out for any other blade.
At a street price of $15 it might make a good jobsite saw — assuming you could swap in a better blade when it wears out. (Watch out — the MXZ sells for $20 via the corporate site, but Amazon carries it for $15.)
