Pull Saw Advantages
Unlike traditional handsaws that cut with a push stroke, pull saws are designed with a micro-thin blade that cuts on the pull stroke. The thin blade and
precision-ground teeth provide clean cuts. The pulling motion prevents binding and provides better control. Less weight, coupled with the natural pulling
motion, results in less user fatigue.
