The hacksaw features a real front grip and both surface grips are rubberized elastomer-the meeting of ergonomics and the utility of putting a handle on the front. The product's mechanism allows for a high tensioned, centered blade. Color-coded tensioning lever and adjustment nut makes blade change visually understandable. The BACHO is a great example of how historic commodity products, such as a hacksaw, can be elevated by design.
