The “Cactus Saw” is designed for medium to large cactus and succulents including Agave. The angled serrated blade is intended for heavy-duty use and the blade should last for many years with proper maintenance. The “Cactus Saw” can be used by professional landscapers, cactus and succulent growers and hobbyists with large cactus and succulent plants and gardens. Price includes 1 blade and choice of color handle.  $24.99 Specify Red, Black, Orange or Blue for the Handle.
