    I love that this thing makes it so stinking quick to chop out a log jam. This year I thought I was going across the top of a tree, but my ski went under it while my sled went over. Needless to say I had to cut that thing to get out. The chain saw provided me with enough space to not have to be down in the hole sawing. It gave me loads of leverage to cut it quick and get back to playing too! Lucky for me, being out of the hole prevented me from getting an injury, as the log was loaded with tension and snapped once I got far enough through it. I was out of the way though because of the chainsaw!

    The handsaw works great and comes in handy when you get yourself in a situation with a tree or two. I really like how compact it is and doesn’t take up much room in my pack.

    Light and easy to use. Effective. My only question will be longevity and how sharp the teeth stay but at this price point ($25) I am very happy

    Simple, heavy, cheap insurance.

    Great tool to take care of tree branches too big for my loppers or pole saw. Strongly suggest one wear good leather gloves to protect hands from sharp blades when handling and straightening out, and to cut down on the strong vibrations created by the sawing action. Probably wouldn’t use this tool while standing on a ladder. One can add lengths of rope to the handles to extend the range from the ground and the branch needing trimmed.

    I thought this could be used to cut branches high up in the tree. Then when I received the oxbow there are cutting teeth on only one side of the chain. This means a person would have to get lucky for the cutting edge to fall on the proper side.

    Fortunately I haven’t had to use this yet but as soon as I do I can’t wait to see how it cuts through lens or possibly trees. I rated it a five because of its compact design.

    Works well to about 6″ diameter. Very sharp.

    This product looks like it’s going to be great. Really nice build quality. I can’t really rate it until spring when real trail clearing occurs.
