Some reciprocating saws also have an up and down motion, called “pendulum action”, which creates an oval shape that is good for making quick cuts in wood. There are a wide variety of blades available, as sabre saws are appropriate for cutting many materials including wood, brick and metal.
Features worth considering when choosing your sabre saw include the motor, weight and grip areas (for comfort), blade changing system, ease of use, and vibration levels.
