A manual back and forth cut it yourself handsaw, a circular saw, a reciprocating saw and a jig saw are all common saws you would hold in your hand and would be used daily by many people.

Which one are you looking for?

For cutting the nosings off where they meet the stair stringers, buy a saw with teeth on only one side. It wont mark up the stringers.

Another handy tool for that is a little power saw that cuts by fast side to side vibrations. Corded (my preference if there are a lot of cuts) or cordless options. Also used to cut off the bottom of the door jambs and casings so the hw fits under.
