Small plunge-cutting handsaws (also known as jab, keyhole, wallboard, or drywall saws) have a pointed blade for starting a cut in the middle of a surface. The blade has sharp teeth with deep gullets and cuts on the push and pull stroke to make fast, rough cuts. They are commonly used to cut small holes in walls or ceilings for fixtures such as light switches, pipes, and electrical boxes.
The fixed blade on these plunge-cutting saws provides good stability when cutting into a range of materials.

These plunge-cutting saws have a retractable blade that lets you adjust the length of blade that's exposed to suit your task. Fully extend the blade for larger cuts, or partially extend it to improve control and stability during cutting and help keep the blade from breaking. When you've completed your task, retract the blade into the handle to protect the cutting edge and help prevent accidental cuts.
When you're done using these plunge-cutting saws, fold the blade into the handle to protect the cutting edge and help prevent accidental cuts when storing or carrying the tool.
