Masonry Hand Saw Buying Tips

These masonry saws actually work very well on most concrete and brick. if you have a few blocks to cut or you need to cut bricks to edge a path then they are ideal. They cut through new blocks extremely well but I can tell you that you definitely wont be cutting 100 blocks with a manual saw. Also I wouldn't attempt to out older blocks as they harden with age and you will just blunt the saw quite quickly.

That being said, they work a hell of a lot better than i would have thought. Even the cheaper ones will do a good job and they don't blunt quickly at all,  as i expected. If you are going to be using this type of saw regularly then i would advise you go for one the the more expensive saws, it will last you a life time.

If you have one or two jobs to do, then you will see that the cheapest saws came out first and second in our ratings and i can assure you, that you will be impressed by how well they actually work.

It Can be Done!
