Sharp, strong, and easy to hold; everything I want in a fold down hand saw

I purchased this a couple of years ago and forgot all about reviewing it. I did end up ordering a second one to keep in a BoB, it’s light and thin enough that it fit nicely. In that time we’ve used the original many times both at home and the acreage.

I was originally concerned about the fold out blade, I’ve not had the best experience with this type of tool in the past and always end up with a loose blade that slips on the pivot point making it difficult to use. I can happily say that this hasn’t happened here. The blade still fits snug, yes I’ve had to tighten it a few times but where the hole in the blade slips over the pivot bearing is till nice and tight. I did have to sharpen it a couple of times but this was painless. As long as you have the right file and know how to sharpen a saw blade its easy, the point is this blade holds an edge very well. There were times when a larger branch slipped out of my grip and dropped putting pressure on the blade but it never got bent. The handle is easy to keep a hold of and the fact that it matches the curve of the blade makes for easy sawing.

The saw has performed and is better built than expected.
