    Need one for initially cutting curves into patio flags. I see they go from very cheap to pretty expensive. Whilst it won't be getting constant use the real cheap options just seem, well cheap and that old adage 'you get what you pay for' springs to mind along with the image of a blade embedding itself in a fence across the garden...

    Suggestions would be most welcome :)

    I got the bosch 9" one which is also good.
    Half the battle with cutting is buying a quality blade. I.e. Diamond, but not all diamonds are forever ;) )

    I'm not in the building game so it won't get constant, like every day, use, but I will use it again, probably for quite a few jobs over the next few years on several houses.
