When it comes to hand saws, they are commonly similar in design. The main cutting element is a steel blade with a toothed edge. This blade is adjacent to a handle. To make a cut the blade is placed directly in contact with the material, and then force is applied while running it back and forward. MegaDepot also offers a selection of hacksaws - tools, specially designed to cut through hard materials like metal. Hacksaws have a fine, thinner blade, that possesses better cutting capabilities, but has a shorter lifespan and is usually replaced after being damaged or worn out.
