  Is there a handsaw that will cut ceramic or glass?  

Yes – In fact, there’s two!

 

You can purchase special blades to use in both a hacksaw and a coping saw which are designed for cutting through ceramic tile, glass, marble and even stone. These blades will either be made from, or coated with, tungsten carbide, a metal which is twice as hard as steel and more resistant to heat damage. 

 
         
  Some blades have a layer of tungsten carbide 'grit' running along the blade  

Some blades have a layer of tungsten carbide ‘grit’ running along the blade. This grit acts as an abrasive in the place of cutting teeth.

 

Tungsten carbide blades are not as common as regular ones and so they may only come in one size. Ensure you select the correct length blade for your tool.
