Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews on the best pull saw or saws that are currently available on the United Kingdom marketplace.
Pull saws are a popular choice for many trades people, but they can also be useful around the home. They are similar in many ways to the Japanese saw. With some pull saws however, they can also be angled to cut door jambs, as shown in the image below.
They work on a pull action which takes a little getting used to. One edge is a ripping blade for quick cuts, and the other edge has a cross cut blade, which is best for finer cutting.
Just below you will see our top 5 list of pull saws. However, we also know you are busy, so if you don't have time to read our full review, we would highly recommend the Irwin Pullsaw - Dovetail.

These pull saws are very good at getting at awkward jobs, especially where a flush cut is required. Really, that's what they were invented for and they are certainly a great tool to have in your toolbox, especially as they are so cheap.
You can go through each of the spec's on our top 5, compare TPis ( teeth per inch ) etc but really this is going to be a tool that's only used on the odd occasion. With a saw like this, I would usually buy either the cheapest of the cheap, which would probably be discarded after i have used it. Or buy the most expensive one and keep it for life,
Going by our research, in this case i would just go for the most expensive on as they are relatively cheap and there's not a massive difference in price.
If you are ineterested in this type of saw they you might want to have a look at our article on Japanese Pull Saws as well.
A very quick video review
We have looked over all the video reviews and found this great short presentation on pull saws versus push sawsl. It gives you an instant idea of what to expect as well as telling you all the features and spec in and easy to understand format.
I hope you enjoy watching it as I always think its much better to see a tool in action rather than just reading about it or seeing pictures. This guy is particularly good at explaining the features of the different saws and he is well known for demonstrating tools.
Hopefully you have found this information on pull saws useful.
