Very good reviews, cheapest I've seen for reputable brand

20" (500mm). High quality, fine cut universal saw. Induction hardened for added life and performance. Bi-material handle, screwed and welded for added comfort and safety.

Be careful. Some Stanley saws are not what they used to be and are too flexible.

Prefer 8 point and 22"

Stanley used to make good hand tools, not
handsaws, recently brought a Stanley screwdriver and that was rubbish, so I can't say they even do that now days!

I bought one of these a couple of weeks back. It was awful.

Went back & bought an irwin jack saw & it felt like a knife through butter in comparison. Makes it much easier to keep your lines perfectly straight than any cheap saw I've used because it's stiffer.

I guess the quality of every consumable comes down to price these days so I read the reviews which were all good, before posting/buying. There are people who still swear by Spear and Jackson saws but the licence to use their name has been sold to the Home Retail Group (Argos and Homebase) so who knows what you are getting there. Irwin and Stanley are owned by the same group. Dewalt are owned by Stanley but (along with Makita) people on here slate their drill bits compared to Bosch ones. I know a joiner who buys a new hand saw for every reasonable sized job. I would say at this price you could do the same if it flexed and warped or blunted far too easily. I've never had any bother claiming warranty for anything I've bought at Screwfix. Admittedly you could get caught out such as with the Titan electric chainsaw recently posted here which Screwfix doesn't provide parts for but for £3.99 I think I'll get my money's worth!

All good info there but I'm sure Makita are not owned by anyone other than themselves?

I don't use a saw that often but this'll do me .
Cheers OP.

Would this cut through a knee bone? Need to know ASAP

This one, not even much more expensive, certainly not considering how much better it is.

​Huh, not that much more, i.e. twice the price lol

​Yeah, but £3 more in the real world isn't gonna break the bank for most people, & believe me, being able to saw a perfectly straight line with ease having often struggled to do that with cheaper saws for years, & bit having to fight with the thing to get through a knotted piece of wood & spend more time trying sand it down makes it more than worth it.

​This site is about good value deals. There are plenty of very good saws at the price point your aiming at. I'm quite happy with this saw for basic everyday jobs and if I abuse it, it will save abusing my 2 Spear and Jackson predator saws, (2 for £10 at B&Q 10tpi) Its horses for courses mate. You might even wanna post that deal to add to your meagre deals tally!
