The IRWIN Universal Handsaw – Always Fast, Never in a Bind

All tradesmen need one reliable handsaw in their toolbox – one that delivers speed, durability under harsh conditions and versatility to cut a variety of building materials. The Universal Handsaw cuts three times faster than traditional tooth handsaws.

The most significant innovation of the Universal Handsaw lies in a novel and proprietary ergonomic positioning of the handle in relation to the cutting edge – this handle-to-blade configuration is optimized to provide superior comfort and fast starts with less effort. In addition, the handle has a comfortable grip constructed from strong, lightweight, high-density resin, resulting in less hand fatigue, and there’s a finger rest for comfort and added grip support.

Combined with the unique handle angle, the triple-ground tooth design of the Universal Handsaw eliminates binding and allows tradesmen to use the entire length of the blade to cut through virtually any type of building material. The Universal Handsaw is faster than coarse-cutting saws but delivers a fine, smooth finish tradesmen expect from fine-tooth saws. Forty-five and ninety degree angle-markers are built right into the blade, providing a convenient tool for quick, precise marking on work surfaces.

More than five years of end user research and product development culminated in the development of this unique-looking high performance jobsite handsaw.
