coming from a guy that works in the trades, I don't think this will take the place of a holesaw, since they are faster, with the drills that are used. also, when cutting holes in a stud wall, there is only 14.5" of space between studs, and a hole saw and drill are easier to use then trying to eyeball a hole with a reciprocating saw. A holesaw guides itself thru the wood, and I think that is why it is faster. I guess the only way you might be able to successfully market it, is from a safety point of view... Sometimes when a holesaw grabs, it can really twist that drill something fierce, and even hurt the operator.... A reciprocating saw would do less to hurt someone.
That being said, if you are marketing it towards the average everyday "Joe-homeowner," then I think you will do pretty good. Most homeowners that want to cut a hole DON'T want to spend the money on a hole saw, or multiple saws, and your blades would be better for them, economically speaking. They can buy a couple of your blades, and do the work of multiple holesaws, for a fraction of the price.
Either way, I think you did come up with great idea, and I wish you best of luck.
PS, I did vote that I wouldn't buy one, only because I have a plethora of holesaw, from 3/4" to 6", so I wouldn't need one. If you came out with this years ago, when I first started, I would have jumped on it. Heck, now that I think of it, I might if I forgot my holesaws and was in a pinch, but then I would look for the most reasonable priced one, and anything more than $10 would not be reasonable priced, IMO.
I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.
