Hand saws have tons of uses on the job and at home, from pruning trees to cutting wood and metal. There are 12 commonly used hand saws. The keyhole saw, designed for cutting curves or holes in wood; the cross-cut saw, designed for rough cutting wood (other finishing tools would follow); the panel saw, which is shorter and easy to transport, is great for cutting smaller pieces of wood; the rip cut saw which is used when you need to cut parallel to the grain of the wood; the back saw, which is used for cutting molding or wood trim has smaller teeth and won’t buckle when used; the wallboard saw is designed for drywall or plasterboard because of its pointed blades and course teeth; a flooring saw is designed for replacing floorboards; a coping saw is used when you want to cut intricate patterns; the Japanese saw cuts quickly with less sawdust because it’s made of very thin steel; the hacksaw is used to cut metal tubing, cables and rods, and the bow saw is typically used for cutting logs. Finally, there’s the pruning saw that can have a curved or straight blade with coarse teeth that is perfect for cutting green wood.
