Good, but the swage is weak. – Wilderness Survival Steel Wire/Scroll Saw (70cm-Full Length) Reviews

posted by DARCOM on 12/17/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
The low price and the small size are a definite plus. It is a simple device and easy to use.
Cons:
The swage that holds the saw band to the rings is too weak. One came apart before the branch was cut The swage should be done in stainless steel to make the whole thing stronger. Then again, do not blame the tool look at the operator skill. Refer to my "Other Thoughts"
Other:
When you are cutting ANYTHING you should always let the blade do the work. You should never force the blade into the material. Do not pull down through the branch too hard or the band may come apart.
Bottomline:
This is value for money. This is a must have item in the kit.
