This thing is great...be careful with it. Wood saw is like cutting thru butter with a hot knife. Haven't used the fine blade. Very lightweight. Its not an axe! Go slow with it and you will have your firewood, with very little impact on total gear weight.
The blade is too thin and warped on first use. Now the locking hinge mechanism is breaking. I have a Gerber multitool that is an awesome piece of work. This saw bites. I bought to replace my $9 Coghlan cheapo saw that was gettting dull and it's two steps below that one in quality.
This folding saw i very light an works out fine. Sadly the saw is to fragile. The blade is very easily bent an the connection between blade an shaft is loosening up.
If you are careful and are looking for a light saw this is a good product. If you (like me) has a more rough handling action I'd recommend something stronger.
The blade flexes way too much. This is a problem with all little folding saws so I only knocked off one star there, the other is because its a Gerber product, it should be better. Id recommend the Snap On Bahco Laplander for a folding saw.
