They are used to cut wood

In all seriousness, most of the times that I used a japanese pull saw I was doing flooring and using it to undercut door jambs. Quite a few people (including myself) also prefer pull saws due to the fact that they are quite a bit easier to use vs a regular hand saw. These saws cut on the pull stroke vs the push stroke of a regular hand saw.
The japanese pull saws produce a thinner, cleaner cut compared to regular hand saws

Not sure on maintenance but I do know that to sharpen them requires a specialty tool

Thanks, you hit the points that I was wondering about. But I guess it's not really for pruning trees, the blade is so wide.Is this supposed to be a great price for these?

It is only $5 off of normal pricing, not sure on this brand quality vs pricing. This should be good for the average DIY individual but if you are a serious woodworker or will be using it in construction a lot, there are better ones out there. Those run anywhere from $35-$45 each.

To anyone buying this, the blade is usually quite a bit sharper than regular hand saws. The blade is also quite thin

I have nice Japanese pull saws for when cut quality matters and a cheap Harbor Freight one for quick random cuts that I don't really care about.

Is there any reason to believe that this Steelhead is any better than the $8 HF version (after coupon): https://www.harborfreight.com/10-...67058.html

It depends on what kind of tree you're cutting! I have a cheap HF pull saw (one-sided, not Japanese style, but pretty much the same teeth) I clamped to the handle for my wide-toothed pole saw when I noticed it worked better for cutting through strangler fig branches than the expensive Fiskars saw blade. The main problem is that because it has such a thin kerf it can bind way easier. But I spent ten minutes sawing through a thick branch with the Fiskars the fine pull saw got through in a minute. It probably depends hugely on the kind of wood you're cutting through, the Fiskars is probably great on oak trees. Also because the pull saw is so flexible and has little weight, sometimes it doesn't work if you're working close to 90° up while the heavy "proper" tree saw will "catch" on the wood.

May be a dumb question, is a saw like this good for small tree limbs?
Or palm fronds

Noooo. These are NOT tree saws.
(unless you are cutting Mr. Miyagi's Japanese maples).
They are thin kerf, very sharp, flexible saws that cut on the pull stroke. Cutting on the pull stroke tends to be more precise, as the thin blade pulls back in a straight cut line… as opposed to wider, Western-style saws that are thicker and cut on the push stroke wherein the blade bends and deflects.
They are well suited to flooring installations, cutting off shims, carpentry service work and precision joinery.

I've used the miniature Harbor Freight version on palm fronds, fishtail palm fronds, and gumbo limbo branches and it can get through smaller ones in one slice. Using the lopping cutters is faster though. I use the bigger version for thicker branches, but as I mentioned above, it depends on the type of wood (regular pruning saws take forever on strangler fig wood which has no directional grain but is a twisted mess so half the time you're cutting through 'endgrain') and there's a higher risk of it binding.

No.

But how small is small? Lopers for a anything up to an inch easy. A standard manual pruning saw will go through green wood faster. Pruning recipe blades if you have a cordless recip saw and need to be one handed
