|“||Sawyers—buzz saws that chase you down—can either be avoided with a quick jump or inhaled so Kirby can copy their cutter power.”|

Sawyer is a buzz saw blade with a red center.
Sawyers have a nearly identical appearance as the Grinder enemies from Super Mario World and Super Mario Galaxy 2, and behave very similarly as well.
Sawyer will move back and forth, harming Kirby if he comes into contact with it.
During the mid-boss fight with Vividria, she will occasionally paint Sawyer on a canvas and bring it to life. It once again grants Cutter when inhaled.
Sawyer's name is derived from the term referring to a person who saws wood. Sawyer is also an English surname, and its name could be a reference to the American fictional character Tom Sawyer.
- Sawyer, Snipper, Plugg, I³ and Ghost Knight are the only enemies originating in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards to reappear elsewhere in the series.
