Have looked at this quite a bit and it seems bucksaws and bow saws (turning and crafting saws) have had a name collision. Bow saws are for craft work much as a coping saw where bucksaws are for, as example, cutting firewood (bucking) and rough work. Two very different usages homogenized together into the term bow saw. Likely this is because the modern bucksaw usually has a bowed pipe handle and people being how they are thought "that is a bow." Have not found any good references on the web delineating each type however, 45 years of cutting and ordering parts for both did until recently were almost every bucksaw is now called a bow saw ending the distinction and ending availability of proper bucksaw (tall) or bow saw (short) blades. Very difficult to acquire anything but the lowest common denominator in blades resulting in one size fits all. Suggest "coping saw" may be used for bow saw when bow saw is desired. For a bucksaw there is no replacement. August 27, 2010 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:14, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
I undid the previous version because the terminology used doesn't exist in any published literature on English or American tools in any context I know about - expecially saws. Give me a relevant citation and I happy to be corrected Mathison2006 04:15, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
-hmm, I have heard this type of saw being refered to as a Bowsaw.... I have added some incite into this matter on the Fretsaw page. I think that this 'cheap' type of tube bent saw was termed in common vernacular as such, because of it's overall similarity to a bow as used for violins and cellos. Maybe this could be cited as such. here is a picture of an actual bow-saw ,  , this one though I can't see the traditional peg. Erlyrisa 04:18, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
-you can't take the request for an expert seriously when the link to the most comprehensive article ever written in any medium on the engineering design of bow saws is removed as spam. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk)
-I have restored one of the two links removed; one link turned out to be a dead-link while the other does not look like link spam (the detailed article). I am not sure why this was considered linkspam. --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 12:10, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
