I use this for pruning at home and for cutting up kindling and small logs when camping. No snagging on push or pull. Very durable- I have not been delicate with it. Blade is strong and does not bend or wibble. Has not dulled. I like the teal handle accent. Stays locked when in use and folds up nicely to store or travel in camp pack. I have come to really rely on this tool!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DoneAndDone Not as good as expected
After reading reviews I thought these would cut through wood like butter. However, they work well on small branches that are just as easily cut with pruning shears. Anything larger they get bogged down with. My pole pruning saw cuts much more quickly and the small bow saws I've owned in the past perform far superior. The advantage of this saw is its convenient size and ability to fold into a compact handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jean Perfect size for home use!
I used this saw to trim back some bigger branches of a magnolia and smaller branches of an ornamental cherry tree. I found it easy to maneuver into tight spots and the right size so I could do it myself. The blade is nice and sharp and doesn't chew the branches.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by J9999 Better than previous version.
Compact, decent balance, cuts well. So far it's still working. Previous model (Martha Stewart also) cut well for several years until the blade just snapped in two pieces. This model's blade appears slightly thicker (good).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phillysenior Easy to use
I used this to cut back a rather large azalea which had some rather thick stems. It was easy to use. I liked the handle grip as it didn't slip. Did a great job. I am a senior and it was easy to use.
