I used to use mine a great deal but then I found
a wonderful small table saw !

The only thing the razor saw got used for after that
was conversions.

Well, it is a specialist tool, so I wouldn't expect to use it much. I don't use my pyrogravure very often either, but I'm glad I've got it.

A jewelers saw is so much more versatile. Looks like a coping saw but uses much finer blades. You can get German style saws on Ebay for $10 USD

I used mine until I accidentally destroyed the blade 20 some years ago. Replacing the blade was expensive, and I had the jeweler's saw, which has turned out to be useful for all sorts of things the razor saw couldn't do, and the blades were cheaper.

I use mine a bit, and it is very useful.

Excellent for making bases for miniatures from strips of plastic, when needed.

Also good for a variety of other tasks too.

There are jobs a razor saw does better than anything else, and sometimes I need to do those jobs.
