The 10 Best Hacksaw Blades
This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in February of 2019. A good hacksaw is an essential tool for plumbers, carpenters, and other handypersons, but it's only useful if it's sharp. If your blade is starting to get dull, consider one of the replacements listed here. We've included options in various sizes, as well as those that use carbon grit, rather than regular teeth, ensuring you'll always have the perfect tool ready for any job. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

It was a fairly uneventful round of updates, with the only real substantive changes we made being removing the DeWalt DW3977-10 – which seemed to be suffering from some availability issues – and replacing it with the Greenlee 333-12 —a bi-metal model for 12-inch tools that looks especially slick installed in the Greenlee 333A hacksaw.

Not every option shown here will be equally suitable for every situation, so be sure to tailor your choice to the material at hand. This makes it somewhat difficult to rank these blades appropriately, as one may be ideal for a certain application while also being unsuitable for another.
For example, if you're working with concrete or similar materials, the Arta USA 01760 should be your first choice, and in that case would be worthy of a much higher ranking than it's given here. However, it's not nearly as useful for other applications, and those limitations are why we penalized it several spots behind more versatile models.
The Lenox Tools Limited Edition earned the #1 spot because of how well it performs in cramped conditions, as it can be manipulated at a variety of angles without snapping. Its sharp teeth allow you to work quickly even if you don't have much room for each stroke as well.
