Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mhass350 sturdy, strong and light.
I was installing skylights and so I had to remove a lot of overhead drywall and the box blades weren't cutting it. Ran out to my local HD looking for a better, bigger blade and found this utility saw. Asked the associate and he said he had heard good things so I took a chance. I was skeptical of it keeping a straight, even line but it did a fantastic job. It was very easy to poke through the drywall to start my cuts and all the cuts were straight and fast.
I would recommend this to any DIYer with drywall plans (it can be used on other materials). Finishing my man-cave is next on my list and I am glad this is in my toolbox.

VERY sharp point, easy to use, comfortable handle. One of those things that you get what you pay for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chipmunk Drywall Saw
Excellent handy saw for drywall and minor projects where a small saw is needed to work in small confinements or on smaller trimming projects or craft projects. Very beneficial to have for short term small jobs... as well as drywall projects. Example would be for changing bathroom exhaust fan from 8" to 12", adding wall switches or an extra electrical outlet, great for making modifications to change medicine cabinets in bathrooms or adding one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arcticblue Better than the original saw
Having just the original saw for years for cutting in Sheetrock and changing to this one made since.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fezzick The only drywall/utility saw you'll ever look for again...
Having been through several types of these tools, from the old school Stanley wood-handled drywall saw to the sleeker more expensive Klein's and Milwaukee's, this tool is hand's down the tops.
The blade, to start, is tempered steel, unlike ALL the others. This means you won't be tossing it in the garbage after 2-3 unfortunate encounters with either the sheetrock of an old house (horse-hair and wood lath strips), or an occasional bit of nail or wood... The give-away should be that the product lists those items as acceptable while none of the others will ever suggest you cut through anything but the kindest and most current sort of drywall material.
I've used mine for cutting more than drywall (at least 40 applications in all) at this point and it still has it's points on the entire blade, and hardly any dullness whatsoever. Any other blade I've used would at this point have nothing but rounded tips on at least half it's blade and be ready to get tossed.
The handle is curved in just the right spots for control while cutting and the butt-end is large enough to ease getting that first plunge cut begun. Absolutely keep the blade cover, as the tool is extremely sharp and stays so for quite a while. My next side project will be searching for a proper sheathe for it (or as a last ditch resort, crafting one myself).
Tossed a few around as Christmas gifts this year to my fellow electricians who have been suffering with the usual fare of throw-away saws. Do yourself a favor and look for these in the Sheetrock tool section, not the hand & power tool area and for a few dollars more than the O.G. Stanley you'll have a tool that will be proudly passed down to your children if you're a DIY'er. And if you're a professional dry-waller or otherwise, you'll have a tool you'll happily put to use for many many months before considering a replacement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by faganm24 Works Great! Has a nice plastic sleeve to save hands when storing
Great handle, worked very well for cutting holes for 10 in ceiling speakers, 2 in wall speakers, and 1 downlight. I scored the circles with a "8-1/2 IN. AC-31 CIRCLE CUTTER" from Home Depot and then cut along score for a perfect circle. Insert saw into score and rock back and forth with pressure to easily penetrate drywall, then saw back and forth easily until you are done. Couldn't ask for more.
