Howdy everyone,

My thoughts are, you cant learn to play poker without playing. My advice, buy any saw you can afford, and start working it. You’ll learn more from that than any forum post. I got a Diston K-1 its a total pile of a saw in some eyes.Its a backsaw of some sorts. I got it for free, sharpenned it up, and got that sucker sawing. Its not as nice as any other saw thats considered great, BUT, when I actually buy a great saw, I bet Ill know the quality difference. Also, some expensive saw I got off of ebay, and “Old, user” turned out to be a crap stick. Good luck though, and just get something and start getting at it!
