Chris Schwarz of Lost Art Press has blogged pretty extensively on the merits and demerits of coping saws. His bottom line is, does that saw have the ability to set and hold angles at each end of the blade? One of the ones he thought was good in that regard was the Stanley FatMax. There was a vintage saw that did, too. Notches on ether end, where grommet meets frame, that set the angle and held it during use.

What kind of attributes you looking for?
