Close but not quite.JimB's Hacksaw .. .. .. . ??
In the TV trade we called it 'cost improved'Close but not quite.
That looks like the one which was linked to earlier, which is probably the successor* to the one which I have.
* Successor = the newer updated cheaper version which does not perform as well as the original but it is a few cents cheaper to produce (in China).
As a result the bean counters are as happy as pigs in straw.

That's what a Monodex is for!My use-case for the rotated blade is occasional cutting down a long length of sheet material like steel (so as not to distort the edge with snips) or plastic (also applies to larger pieces of copperclad)
Sorry about that, I got carried away That was a pick of wrestler Hacksaw Jim Duggin.I've wondered about getting nibblers before. Decided against it at the time, probably due to cost compared to how much I would actually use them.

Trying to teach them things made me more ambidextrous too.Most left handed people are to some extent ambidextrous so it's rare this kind of thing causes an actual problem. It's just annoying.
You are talking flipping the blade end for end, I was talking a flip side to side.My use-case for the rotated blade is occasional cutting down a long length of sheet material like steel (so as not to distort the edge with snips) or plastic (also applies to larger pieces of copperclad). After finally being able to visualise the thing (after looking at the pipe-cutting-man photo) I realised that what would happen in my case is that it's actually the right-handed person who has to flip the blade, and gets the back of the saw dropping below the blade level. For me it would be the same way round as pipe-cutting-man, but the back of the blade would be above the blade level. Just puts my hand at a reversed angle (fingers upwards).
