Rod Saw to Cut MOP Inlays?

Rod saws are for cutting tile.
Could it be done or should i just face reality and cough up the cash to stew mac for a jewelers saw?
Or
Could i use i fine coping saw blade?

You can look for blades at many sources (I got mine at Sears), but I think you want at least 50 tpi.

Here's what Stew Mac sells:



Also, there are more than just esoteric differences between a coping saw and a jeweler's saw....you'll get a better result with the right tools.
