The lockback mechanism secures the blade at a full 180-degrees and also at a 125-degrees for those hard to reach spots.

  • Hand saw has faster cutting blade with triple ground teeth and ability to cut in both directions
  • Lockback mechanism secures the blade open at 125-degree and fully open at 180-degree

        A:  I do not think that this can be done easily nor just why go to so much work for something that you can just get another jab saw

        by|Apr 4, 2020

        A:  Hi LiteKid, I looked at the Klein tools web site and couldn't find a replacement blade offered. Under the Klein Warranty the jab saw was as a consumable. So it looks like the saw blade is not replaceable. I would guess sawzall blade will not fit either. I hope this helps. Chipmaker

            Superb
            First, let me start off by saying this is a must have. Makes Tasks simple, offers more efficiency, and takes the hard work out of it all! Did I mention it locks at 125° and 180°?No?Well here it is folks! Locks to make performing tasks at awkward angles less awkward. Also, is fairly light, and since it folds all the way closed, no need to worry about cutting Pouch Rigs, Tool bags, or even your hands while trying to stow away, or reach for it!

                Klein Tool provided me with this tool and other incentives for my honest review. This is a very solid saw that cuts clean and fast. The handle is comfortable and provides a nice grip. The 125 degree locking is an excellent feature for tight spaces. I would highly recommend this saw. NO more torn up pouches!

                  Klein Tools has provided me with free product and additional incentives to provide an honest review of this product. Klein Tools has designed a great product with this folding jab saw. After years of carrying a normal saw in my tool bag, it is nice to not have a saw cutting your bag or hand when digging around. The locking blade has 2 positions, and I found both to be comfortable to use. The lock is also very sturdy, so you don’t need to worry about it closing on your hand.

                    folding jab saw
                    Loving this folding jab saw. My current one always sticks and pulls my tool bag apart. This one is heavy duty and the blade folds out of the way for storage

                      NO MORE CUT BAGS OR HANDS!!!
                      Klein sent me this folding jab saw to test under the klein crusaders program. If I leave an honest review I will be rewarded incentives under this promotion. This jab saw is the best saw I have used. The fact I can fold it up and the blade not cut my bag or other tool grips and most importantly my hands. I can’t tell you how many times I have cut my hand open on other saws trying to retrieve them from my bag. I havent needed to fold the saw to 135degrees and cut any receptacles in. I would recommend anyone to buy this jab saw. #kleincrusaders #kleintools

                        I recently obtained a Klein Folding Jab Saw. The tool is intended to cut through drywall, wallboard, plywood and plastic during construction work. I actually wanted the tool for outdoor activities in a survival environment. I really liked the folding and storage for the blade. When stored in the closed position there is no fear of the blade poking a hole in a pack or damaging other gear in the pack. The easy access button on the back of the handle unlocks the blade with a simple push. The blade can be latched and locked in position at 125° and fully open at 180°. I plan to keep the saw in my ATV pack or in my day pack when hiking. The triple ground teeth and ability to cut in both directions should make a great tool in the woods. I plan on using the saw to cut small limbs for shelter building or cutting kindling. The tip of the saw blade should be great for boring small holes. I like the folded length of the tool and weight. The handle has a good feel and grip. I think the saw will work well for my intended purpose.

                        Ideal for cutting into drywall or similar material. This saw has a very sharp set of serrations and a very sharp point that enables it to be pushed through the material to start cutting. The handle has a nice big diameter which allows a good solid grip. It its made from two materials, an orange plastic and a black rubbery type material that prevents slippage. The rear end of the handle is flat and fully covered with the black material reducing bruising that may occur to one’s palm if one were to try and bang it through some material. The rear end of the handle also has a hole for attaching it to a lanyard, or hanging on a nail. When closed the handle is just over 6½ inches. When fully opened out, it is 1 foot long. There are two locking positions, open to 125° and open to the full 180°. To close the blade one must depress the metal button towards the rear of the handle to disengage the lock. The blade does go through material very well. Each tooth has been cut three times to shape it. Warranty: Product warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship when delivered to the customer Made in China

                        Klein Tools Folding Jab Saw This is a very strong feeling 5 inch folding jab saw with a 7 inch comfortable handle. It is heavy and solid feeling. The point of the saw is sharp, and can easily jab through drywall, for example. (I used recently to cut an opening for an electrical box.) The blade teeth are sharp. The blade locks open in only two positions, fully extended (180 degrees) , and at a 125 degree angle (see photo). It locks open very securely. To fold the blade back into the handle, you have to press the button near the end of the handle. The blade does not spring closed into the handle, you must manually pivot it back into the handle. While I appreciate the fact that the blade locks open securely, my one complaint is that the button to release the blade to fold it is extremely difficult to press.
