A hacksaw and a handsaw
are both cutting tools however they are completely different from one another. Hacksaws are primarily for sawing steel and plastic. On the other hand, handsaw are for wood materials. Another contrasting difference is the design. Hacksaws have a thinner blade supported by a bow-shaped frame. The frame of a hacksaw is even adjustable to the length of the blade, which means you can replace blade. While handsaws have a handle and thicker and straight blade.
