Saw Point was a competitor robot that fought in the fourth series of Robot Wars. It reached the second round of its Heat, before losing to Panic Attack and getting destroyed, with its distinctive saw wheels being the only salvageable components following its Series 4 defeat.
The team later competed in Series 6 and 7 with Demolition Man, a completely new design.
Saw Point was a tall two-wheeled robot armed with a large ramming 'harpoon' spike at the front which was able to split open once impaled, and a large double-bladed plough at the back. By far the robot's most distinctive feature, however, was a pair of 60cm saw blades which acted as the robot's wheels, with each saw wheel being fitted with a spear attached to the axle. Saw Point also featured graphics with the robot's logo and a demon-like figure along its body and plough, custom designed by team member Damian Smith, and was armoured in mild steel and polycarbonate.
Saw Point entered Heat O of the Fourth Wars as the only newcomer in its heat, and was drawn against Oblivion 2 and the twentieth seed Aggrobot 2 in its first round battle. Saw Point drove straight into Oblivion 2 in the first round melee, its jagged wheels damaging Oblivion 2 and causing to break down. Saw Point was then knocked on its side by Aggrobot 2, leaving it only able to drive on one wheel, balanced on its axle spear, much to Jonathan Pearce's delight.
- "Wonderful wheels, great creation - ah hey, a bit wobbly though...what are they doing on those blades, they're all over the place! A bit like a chariot race, in an old Hollywood matinee! Great competitors, super stuff Saw Point - I hope they go all the way!"

Saw Point continued to thrash the seeded Aggrobot 2 around the arena, but Oblivion 2 had broken down from the damage done by Saw Point's wheels, and it was pitted.

- Stephen Thomas: "I think it's going to be panic, panic and attack!"
- — Before the fight with Panic Attack
Saw Point met the fourth seed Panic Attack in the next round. Saw Point put on an impressive display of strength by deflecting Panic Attack's initial charge, and attempts by the former champion to lift it resulted only in Panic Attack raising itself off the ground. The second charge, however, left Saw Point on its side, and the third buckled the axle spear. Panic Attack then came over and lifted Saw Point very nearly out of the arena, but ultimately failed to do so. Panic Attack's forks were inserted in Saw Point's ruined axle spear, and the fourth seed dragged the valiant machine around and rammed it into Sergeant Bash and several side walls. After taking damage from Shunt's axe, Saw Point showed no signs of life, and was pitted by Sir Killalot.
