    Really useful, good quality tool

    posted by gimlet1 on 11/02/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This product is light weight, but extremely capable at cutting through most materials I have tested such as wood and a piece of PVC tube, it cuts quite quickly through materials. It is really good, because of it being abrasive it does not have a sharp cutt...
    Cons:
    The metal rings you hold it with are a bit un-comfortable, but it is bearable and the wearing of a pair of gloves while using s...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Used this to cut a small tree in my backyard, worked great and as i would have expected it to work. In the event of outdoor survival as a necessity this would be great to have on you.
    Cons:
    only downfall is it seems it would break after a couple uses, as well as the finger loops could be more supportive of your fing...

    Cons:
    Not.

    Must have outdoor tool

    posted by securedigital on 08/11/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Aa the box says it's your saw partner, which can be handy anywhere. I'ts quite resistant, also very light and compact, so you can carry it anywhere in your bag or pocket. Used to cut thin things, although it's tough, too much friction/heat might spoil the d...
    Cons:
    I'ts a good item, but it's not made to last long. It's is intended to be used in special emergency cases, not for a continous h...

    It's alright

    posted by DukeTh on 01/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - It's cheap. - Because it's a wiresaw, it's easy to fold in any shape or dimension, so it'll fit in every pocket or bag. - It weighs practically nothing. - It saws alright, but it depends on what you want to do with it. I have used it to saw small branches...
    Cons:
    - Don't use it on thick branches, I got the feeling that it might break when under too much tension or friction heat. - An axe ...
