Default Good Quality Razor Saw

Who makes a good quality razor saw that cuts on the pull stroke and can cut brass, aluminum and mild steel (e.g. small bolts)? I have an old Zona saw that I've used for 30 years and have finally worn it out. I bought a new Zona with multiple blades and they are certainly not the same quality as the old one! I need one with about a 5" long blade, that will cut over 1/2" deep (for clearance when cutting thin sheet stock), and something like 42 tpi. Blade thickness of 10 thou or so.

I can't tell you about it first hand.. But I know I recently read of someone preferring the saw he had bought at Harbor freight to his Zona.. I was surprised by that and I recalled it when I read your post.

He may have been referring to their junior hack saw. I have one and it works well, but the kerf is too wide and the teeth are not fine enough for cutting thin sheet metal. thanks for the tip, though.

Thanks for the link though. There are some interesting tools there.
