Great Product!

The ONLY reason I give this product a 4 instead of a 5 is the difficulty in exchanging or switching one blade for another. My son and I have used these saws to cut thru breast and pelvic bones for years. I have NEVER had a blade snap. We have even used them to remove numerous mule deer and whitetail antlers. Cutting thru the skull is a little tougher than anything else we have used these great saws for. But they perform the task flawlessly. I read several of the reviews that were taking these fine saws to task. But I have never had one fail. I would NEVER go afield on a deer or elk or hog hunt without one of my trusted Gerber saws.

Well cutting saw

This saw has served me well for over 5 years. It finally broke on me this last trip. I am not sure if it was a manufacturing flaw, or user error, but the push button lock stopped working.

I will definitely buy another one. Its light and I have carried it backpacking, cycling, on trail work days, and around the house for yard work.

The only thin you have to remember that the blade is easily bent, so you need to be careful not to twist or turn the handle with the blade in the wood. Although, it's easily bent back into place.

This thing is 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.

A Winner!

This set made my day (twice this season)the blades are very sharp and cuts right thru with hardlely no effort and beleive me after a full day of stalking and when it's time to skin that deer, you want it to be as easy as possible.

Works on small stuff

Thought I'd try this out and found it to be not bad. Anything over 3" thick will make you work for it. Burns through dry, slender stuff quite well but I can just break those. I tend to leave it behind on shorter trips.

Negative Reviews:

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.

Not durable.

This unit is very subject to breaking with moderate (side-way) force. I've snapped two saw blades and yesterday, the handle broke beyond repair.

Neutral Reviews:

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.

Rigor at on 02/07/2007

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.
