EverSaw Folding Hand Saw Design & Materials
EverSaw Folding Hand Saw comes with an uncoated 8-inch carbon steel blade that features triple-cut (or triple-sharpened) hardened teeth designed for smooth and fast sawing. Its 9 teeth per inch pattern makes the saw chew through bone, wood, and plastic without any problems.
The handle features a rubberized overmold, which ensures a tight non-slip grip even during the most demanding of tasks. The blade locks firmly in place thanks to the gear-tight locking action and the pivot pin can be tightened or loosened to meet your personal preferences. The butt of the handle also features a lanyard hole, which provides an additional layer of safety.
What separates this model from the competition is its metal construction that goes all the way to the end of the ergonomic handle. Additionally, the locking mechanism feels incredibly tight and infinitely superior to the traditional push-button safety lock. The locking mechanism is entirely made of metal with an orange plastic cover on top.
EverSaw Folding Hand Saw Performance
The handle provides a comfortable and secure grip, which is of utmost importance as EverSaw 8.0 implements a Japanese pull-saw style (it only cuts during the pull motion). The lanyard hole at the back is very convenient since no saw teeth enter this space when you close it.
The blade has enough flexibility to withstand all the usual sawing tasks. However, it might take some time to get used to this type of blade if you have never used it before. Since it does not feature any coating, you might want to keep a protective film on the blade for some extra resilience.
EverSaw 8.0 performs well and can cut through pretty much anything, including green and dry wood, plastic, and the toughest of bones. The construction is solid and the blade does not feel flappy in spite of its flexibility. If the blade starts to wobble at some point, you can always tighten the pivot pin and keep on going.
This model is easy to clean and maintain and can be carried in your back pocket or backpack without any fear of sagging. At only 0.6 pounds, it is one of the lightest folding saws out there.
