Though a good bow saw comes in handy around the yard and camp, you don’t always want to carry around a full-size version. Irwin makes this little 12″ bow saw that looks like it’d be easy to pack and still useful around camp. And it also accepts standard hacksaw blades — that’s one useful tool.
The high-frequency welded frame reduces flex so you can cut faster. A knuckle guard protects your hand, and Irwin’s ProTouch grip gives you more control and keeps your hand comfortable while sawing. The deep six-inch throat design lets you cut larger diameters, whether it be branches or pipes.
The saw comes with both a steel hacksaw blade and a bow saw blade which cuts in both directions. You’ll pay something like $9 to $13 for Irwin’s Combi-Saw, which isn’t a bad deal, but if you search Amazon for “bow saw” you can find other companies with similar products for less.
