This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in October of 2017. If your woodworking project requires extra precision, consider purchasing a coping saw. These tools allow you to make elaborate cuts and intricate patterns in wood — feats that are difficult, or even impossible, to accomplish using other varieties of saw. The models on this list boast features such as adjustable tension, ergonomic handles, additional blades, and more. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best coping saw on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 15, 2019:

Choosing a variety of handle types was an important factor in the selection process, which is why the products featured here have handles made from a range of materials — including wood, rubber, and plastic — to accommodate different comfort preferences. We've moved the Bahco 301 to the very top of the list due to an increase in popularity among both professional and amateur woodworkers. User concerns about the blade of the Olson Saw SF63510 shifting out of alignment are overwhelmingly outnumbered by endorsements of the product, which is why it remains in the list.
