A crosscut saw is specialized for cutting across the grain of wooden workpieces, making it suitable for similar cuts as a chop saw as well as for resizing plywood sheets (you'll always cut through some layers across the grain). It has a rather wide kerf (cutting width) but is stiff enough to allow for corrections during your cut.

We have one crosscut saw that currently hangs from a wall in the wood workshop.
