Better than origional blade
8 Jul 2014
By ARBARB
, Crawley Down
"Brought this to replace the original blade that came with the saw (not a screwfix one). This new blade is easily a better blade than the original cheap blade. Super sharp, does not jam and cuts through wood in record time."

Great Value
6 Jun 2014
By MikeLancashire1

"The 21" bow saw is a great size - not too big and certainly not too small. Blade is very sharp and cuts through 3" branches no problem. Excellent price, also,
Blade also comes with plastic guard cover, for safety.

"I purchased the 21" bow saw at £6.99 and am very pleased with it. I was also impressed with the service at the Scewfix depot in Glastonbury. The staff were very polite and friendly."

"This saw is great. I was trying to cut down a tree in the garden with a hardpoint saw, was taking me ages. Bought this and multiplied my cutting speed by 10. Awesome."

"Nice little saw, comes with a nice sharp blade already fitted. Well tensioned blade and a comfortable grip.
Good value for money!

small but perfectly formed
16 Apr 2010
By nilo
, brum
"it cuts through wet & dry branches really easily, just two minor niggles, and they are really minor.
1 the foam cushions front & rear rip off in no time
2 the wing nut on the blade changer comes loose & disappears, one lock washer would solve this.
Neither detract from the overall performance 5 star

Not as Good as the Reviews?
5 Jan 2013
By pazrob
, Lincolnshire
"Very flimsy product! Blade cover snapped, foam sleeve split and not as heavy duty as the reviews might lead one to believe. That said, the blade did cut well although it might not get me through to the final cuts. Not a novice DIY-er but a trained engineer. This is a level entry tool so can only recommend, go for the slightly more expensive tool next time."

Cheap to buy but cheaply made
4 Mar 2012
By clive369

"Does what it's supposed to (i.e. cuts wood) but don't expect this to last too long. Why it's got a foam "grip" on it I don't know because that simply won't last with regular two-handed use.
Cheap to buy but cheaply made also. While it does work, I'd have rather paid an additional extra £7 to get a better saw (e.g. Bahco) which I know will give many years use.
You pays your money, you takes your choice etc."
