Irwin Tools has introduced the Universal Handsaw, which the company says cuts three times faster than traditional tooth handsaws.

The saw's handle-to-blade configuration provides comfort and fast starts with less effort, according to the company. The handle is constructed from high-density resin and has a finger rest for comfort and added grip support.

The saw's triple-ground tooth eliminates binding and allows tradesmen to use the entire length of the blade to cut through almost any type of building material. In addition, 45- and 90-degree angle-markers are built into the blade.

"More than five years of deep consumer insights and intense product development culminated in this next generation handsaw," says George Hartel, director of marketing for Irwin Tools. "For carpenters and remodelers across the world, this will be the only handsaw they'll ever need."

Irwin's Universal Handsaw is avilable with a 15" and a 20" blade with a suggested retail price of $18.99 and $21.99, respectively.
