I bought this pruning saw a long time ago and somehow it got misplaced. I was talking to a gardener buddy of mine. He had owned a nursery until the market tanked. He told me it is is favorite tool. That's when I realized I couldn't find mine and knew I needed to order another!!! It is one of my favorite "go to tools!!"
I prune my trees, and some for the neighbor's on both sides of me.
Very handy tool. One of my favorites. Stores nicely in holster with knife.
This is a pretty well made saw and enjoy having it. If I had to choose a negative it would be that over time the blade has a tendency to not easily fold back all the way due to wear. Also, it would be nice to have a leather type holder for it. Gardeners Edge responds: Item #SC89 is a wonderful sheath holder for a soil knife and this saw.
Great saw! I bought it to work on my art; cutting wood and various materials...It's a good quality hand tool.
Fits in my big pocket. Sturdy construction.
The folding type saw is one of my favorite tools. The Leonard saw with the tri-cut blade and comfort grip makes really quick work of my pruning tasks - it's is the best folding saw I've ever used.
We had been purchasing Felco folding saws until we tried the AM Leonard folding saw and it lasted longer(more durable blade) and was cheaper.
This is an excellent saw that cuts very fast. I like that it folds because the blade is very sharp.
This is by far the best hand saw I have ever used. I keep one on the tractor all the time. Cuts with unbelivable ease. Very well made. Convenient. Bought three more for stocking stuffers.
This is a great item............cuts through a 4" branch with ease
Exact same top quality performance as ARS GR17 but at a much more attractive price!
The Leonard folding saw is a good quality folding saw and it lasts as long as the higher priced saws. I like the rubber comfort grip the saw has, but would prefer the locking latch to be like the older Felco model. Over all for the price you can't beat the Leanord saw.
Good blade, does not break like Felco, cuts well. I have had problem with the latch not staying locked open.
the saw is great, but the plastic lock broke when we used it the first time, it was replaced with a new one and it is great, I would recommend this saw with leonard free replacement , the old saw had a metal-wire lock which was great
Although I received this saw recently, and have only used it once, am very happy with it. I am 75 years old, and needed a sharp saw that is easy to use.
I bought this saw trying to cut my costs and also to have a saw that I could easily get replacement blades for. Since buying the tool, all of my guys want one. However, I have not had to use any of the replacement blades to date; the original one is holding up just fine. This saw was less expensive than other I have bought and appears to be much more durable.
The size is small enough to keep handy, yet it is sturdy and they stay sharp quite a long time.
We replaced this saw for the others we tryed before. This saw's size and sturdiness plus it's easy to work with makes it a great choice
The kerf setting on the A700 is correct from the start and binding is not a problem. The curved blade makes this a very aggressive saw, requiring less effort to complete the task. The only drawback is that the blade is still exposed in the folded position and it is possible to "nick" your fingers when grabbing the blade to open it for use. Blade thickness make it less prone to flexing versus the Felco 600. The GR17 from ARS works just as well but the kerf had to be set to prevent the binding.
The saw performs well for light use. When used to cut larger limbs (over 8 inches) the handle broke off. [Gardeners Edge] replaced it free of charge. I only use it on smaller branches now.
i really like the saw it comes in handy on my trimming small trees. what i like about it is that it is a small saw and easy to handle.
Great compact sturdy folding saw. Have not had it long but it seems like it will last a long time. very cost effective and good for multiple crews.
We bought several of these saws to replace broken or lost saws that our maintenance crews use all the time. After having the saws for a couple of weeks, I had several of the guys come to me and brag on how good these saws were compared to the ones we have used in the past. We have used all kinds but the guys really like the A700 and that says a lot when they prefer a manual saw over mechanical. I will absolutly buy more of these saws in the future.
