It’s truly amazing that only a minority of today’s circular saws have grips with a thick rubber cover. A grip like that allows for the absolute best stability and can fit any hand size possible.

On their website, Black and Decker clearly state that this model is for everyday, minor fixes. However, we weren’t ready to let the Black and Decker CS1015 circular saw off the hook, so we tested it on tougher, industrial grade tasks and it performed great.

The reason for such a stellar performance is the rather rare decision to go with a 24-tooth blade for both thicker and thinner materials, whether it is food or something even tougher.

The dust blowers are maybe the best on this list, as they clean the mess in a matter of seconds. If that’s not enough, you can set them for interval blowing, if that’s your preference.

To top everything off is an incredible 15-Amp motor to support a sturdy construction fit for any task you put it in front of. We’ve concluded already mid-testing that Black & Decker circular saw is one of the best and most reliable one in recent years.

At a price as low as this one, you are getting more performance-per-dollar than any other model. That should be a big reason why this is one of the most underrated circular saws and should deserve consideration.
