Looks like a good tool for a guy with a heavily wooded yard who also camps a lot. Who also isn't giving me any ideas for a Christmas gift.

attached to long lines, allows removing high limbs from trees. It certainly does work, though one has to plan the cut so that the chain doesn't get pinched when the limb starts to sag.
Pal is good . . .|

Depending on the use - it can be a good tool. In my neck of the woods a saw/axe is more useful, but for clearing willows, brush and such the Pal works.
As to saws -|
Posted by: rpg51 on Dec-02-13 6:22 AM (EST)
its all about the blade. Most bow saws come with blades designed for all around or green wood cutting. Some of the teeth are teeth that serve to clean out the damp daw dust that forms and hinders cutting when you are cutting green or wet wood. Of course, we aren't generally sawing up wood to clear trails and such - we are sawing up dry firewood. So the best blade for our purposes is what is sometimes called a "peg" tooth saw blade without any raker teeth. EVery tooth on these blades cuts the wood. There are no teeth designed only to clean, or rake, out saw dust from the kerf. Try one sometime. They cut through the typical dry wood that we find ourselves working up a LOT easier and faster than the standard raker tooth blades.

knife that puts most machetes to shame. Steel is so hard you can't drill it w/out a press. I bought it when I was 15 making it a half century old.Replaced the grips with cherry.
