TOH All-Purpose Pick: Quick-Cutting Hybrid

Bahco's 24-inch Superior has the length of a traditional saw and the knife-edged, hardened teeth of a modern hybrid, so it eats through wood with impressive speed on every push and pull stroke. The blade's textured polymer coating helps it slide more smoothly in the kerf. 7 tpi, about $40; J.H. Williams Tool Group

Pro Advice:
"To prevent a saw blade from rusting, spray it with a silicone-free lubricant such as Slipit before putting it away. Don't use oily lubricants, which leave a residue on wood that will interfere with glues and finishes."
