Default Hacksaw bag

Does anyone know of a hacksaw zipper bag or something like that? I would like to seperate it from my other tools in my bag and stop cutting into my hands when i reach in for something. I currently have a Greenlee 12" saw.

What about using a piece of vinyl push-on edge trim over the toothed end of the blade. Thatís what I use anyway. I kind of looks like the door edge molding you see on car doors, but has a smaller space in between. McMaster-Carr sells a lot of different types. The only problem is that you will probably have to buy a minimum 10-foot roll.

A Sawzall replaced my Hacksaw years ago.

I do break it out every now and then though.

That edge guard that KJ mentioned might do the trick for you, if not check out these Klein bags.

Put one of those cheapo plastic edge binders that you use for holding paper together in order to make a presentation folder. Worked for me for the past 10 years

Sears has blade covers, they come about 2' long you just snip to length.

I use a Husky tool bag that you can get at Home Depot. It's got a pocket in the side made to fit a hacksaw. It's $30, gots lots of pockets and good storage space while not being huge and bulky. Here's a link to one so you can get an idea what it looks like (not to buy, look at the shipping costs!):
