Workshop benches are notoriously cluttered surfaces, making products like this dual saw wonderfully practical. The typical handyman has a broad selection of different handsaws for different jobs, but a varied collection could be cut in half in numbers with the manufacturing of products like this one.

After doing some DIY projects, Richard Motzkus was inspired to redesign the standard carpenter's hand saw for better efficiency and ergonomics. A double-edged blade was conceived for the Tilt-Lock to offer the utility of a crosscut saw on one side and a ripsaw on the other.

To deal with the fact that the handle would have to be comfortable from two different angles, the designer made an open pivoting component with a handgrip attached. This feature of the dual saw has the added benefit of being adjustable to individual users working on unique tasks.
