Draper Pruning Saw - 210mm version
on 7 January 2013
Compared to slightly cheaper, budget pruning saws this saw comes out well. The lock and pivot mechanism are set in a metal liner. The handle is a textured rubberised material and the blade is decent. Compared to more expensive Bahco and Silky saws it doesn't compare so well. The handle is not so ergonmic. The shape is more angular with all sorts of corners and bits sticking out. The blade isn't coated and there's no lanyard (but there is a lanyard hole). Bushcrafters will probably be happier with a Bahco. Gardeners possibly won't feel like they're missing out, especially if they're never used a Bahco or Silky. The Draper is currently significantly cheaper than a Bahco and it makes for a good 'beater'. As such it will probably get used more than my Bahcos.
