A reciprocating saw (or sabre saw) is among a handyman's handiest tools. The saw works in a push-pull reciprocating motion, gets into tough places and cuts through just about anything. It features a large blade and a comfortable handle that lets users cut materials in a huge number of angles.

Some reciprocating saws come as less-powerful cordless models, while others are high-powered, high-speed, corded saws. For your next building project, you must add a reciprocating saw to your toolbox.
