A fun experiment, but not worth it. – Wilderness Survival Steel Wire/Scroll Saw (73cm-Length) Reviews

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

Pros:
This item is dirt cheap. In fact, it may be cheaper than dirt. The handles are comfortable smooth plastic, and fit my fingers nicely. The length of the "chain" is adequate for small jobs.
Cons:
Design just plain old does not work for cutting branches. The wire binds as soon as the cut gets deeper than about a quarter of an inch. It is not easy to unbind, either. I would not take this on a camping trip and expect to do anything useful with it.
Other:
Bottomline:
It was a fun experiment to try, and at less than $3, cost me almost nothing, but this went into the trash shortly after I received it.
