Cutting plaster?

Long story short, I've found my old back brace, and am planning to cut it and shape it into a sort of breastplate. But my main question is, what type of saw is good for cutting plaster?

I forgot to mention. My friend suggested this type of saw blade: http://images.harborfreight.com/cpi/photos/90100-90199/90114.gif

But I don't have anything like this, would there be another good substitute?

plaster? or plastic? HUGE difference in materials. Plaster isn't really wearable, assuming you mean plastic as I can't imagine a brace made out of plaster. All that said, an ordinary hacksaw should serve. be aware the brace may have metal bits inside the plastic as well, a hacksaw can cut metal, it will take longer though.

Hm, it really was plastic, haha. I didn't bother to look closely at it until now after all these years. xD Anyhoo, I'll probably give that a shot. Thank you c:
