****in Norton won't let me go to the link. Yeah I know, get Mozilla. Anyway, is that pretty much a hacksaw or is it motorized?

It's a carbide folding handsaw. What type of carbide is unknown, but I doubt it will cut through a top quality lock with any degree of ease.

Infomercial BS

I have the same type of blade on my 'cordless recip' right now, only using it cause I don't have any serrated metal cutting blades on hand. Its gives a less accurate cut, and takes more effort and time.

They sell little handles you can put smallish hack saw like blades on, cheaper and better in my opinion.

It will NOT cut through any good lock with ease, by the time someone does, they'd be drenched in sweat.

I think someone should buy one and see if it can even cut through wood.

I have better things to spend my money on. Like a DVD of the divine secrets of the yaya sisterhood or the hours.

lmfao ive had a band saw blade like that for like 3 years now. exept ours is just a thick wire with that type of edge on it all around. we bought it when we were working with bricks and cinterblocks and it worked great for both of those but on metal it worked just as good as a regular hacksaw blade would. and with it being so small like that id say it would be very hard to cut things
oh and the ad is so cheap hahaha its so fake if you actually look at it. everything they cut they either dont even cut it completely, or they have it precut to a paper thin piece holding it together. lol

there's a reason that good u-locks cost 50x more than horseshoes.

most of that reason is marketing, but still... not all steel is made the same.
