I wanted to get it but I though it was too heavy and also it does not have a coating so it will rust.

Bahco vs Kershaw 2555 Taskmaster Saw ?
>>
>>668926
I have pic related.

I have only used it a handful of times.

It has held up fine, and cuts wells.

I have no complaints, however time will tell how well it continues to work.
>>
>>668937
cool, I'm trying decide between it and the the Kershaw.

i have a good folding saw, but i was looking at it today and decided not to pack it, as its useless extra weight when i already have a nice 12inch 3lb hatchet

what are some good uses for the saw the hatchet cannot provide?
>>
>>668947
For ultralight backpacking a saw is preferred.
>>
>>668926
One that I bought at Home Depot. Lasting me a while and pretty good at cutting stuff.

The saw is lighter generally, and serves about the same purpose.

I can cut faster with my saw than my hatchet.

Now comparing an axe to a folding saw, the ax definitely cuts faster. Once I get to a small hatchet, I find the saw has the advantage.

Sven saw is where it's at if you have common sense
> cut big log have big fire no get cold.

>>668926
imo it's expensive like $30 here.
it doesn't actually perform better than a $2 no-name one, and hence my problem it's a waste of fucking money.

sure it will last a bit or sometimes a lot longer, but it's retarded is what it is.

I have that bahco... It's a good saw but it bent on me within a couple days on a week long canoe trip, first time I'd used it. I was cutting some pretty thick damp shit though so I suppose bla bal bla.

Silky saws on the other hand, we have two in work and I've laid about a km of hedge with the fuckers and they're still going strong. Highly recommended.

>we have two in work
I should add that they're fixed blade saws, I've no personal experience with the folders.

Corona 10 inch. In most cases a folding saw is a folding saw. Bahco. Corona. Silky. Fiskars. Will treat you well. I chose corona because of the extra 2 inches. 3$ cheaper than banco and has a better lock up. The handle is better to. Only down side is the size but that's a fuck all because I wanted 2 more inches for bigger/ faster cutting.

Troll bait.
If you honestly think that you are a retarded pleb.

easier on live tree if you cut the branch with a saw heals better.

Silky saws are sick.

I Just bought a bahco, and use it on mesquite wood (Hard wood) and the saw do it nice and smooth, Almost feels like pine.
>>
>>668929
Too heavy? They're so light.
And I have been using one for two years that hasn't rusted and is still sharp enough to go right through anything.
I have the sugowaza. I like that it doesn't have the hook on the end and has hand guards, although I know that you want folding saws.

I still say silky or nothing if you want performance. If that isn't priority, just get a folding saw.

My dad's got a Coghlans folding camp saw that he's been using for about 30 years. From cutting limbs and twigs to sawing through bone to field dress deer it has always worked just fine. And at the cost, it won't hurt if you break it or lose it.

I have one too; the big size. I'm quite happy with its cutting speed and carry weight.
does your wrap diminish the rattle it makes?
I haven't fucked 'round with mods yet but thats currently my main complaint.

also: i may be a damn potato but I can't get the damn thing to cut straight. always diagonal to the right.
am i potato or is this a because of the tool?
