Are these pocket chainsaws significantly different from a standard chainsaw chain? Whereas regular chainsaws cut in only one direction do the ones EDC is selling cut in both directions?The pocket chainsaw and Ultimate Survival Saber Cut saw are the best.

I wouldn't say they are useless,why do you think the army have them i there survival kits?I never liked the commando saws that I had when I was a lad, pretty useless things. A folding saw is far better, even the saw on a Swiss Army Knife cuts smaller stuff quicker.
I think those commando saws would make a better garotte.
Perhaps the ones the army gets issued with are of a higher quality than civi ones?I wouldn't say they are useless,why do you think the army have them i there survival kits?
Saying they are useless is like saying a bow drill is useless just because you can not mastered it.
If you take the time to learn how to use a wire saw properly it can save your life,they pack into a small tin and take up little room.
Suprisingly yorkshire boy so have i and not just mod ones so i say its more than likely down to the way you are using it.Perhaps the ones the army gets issued with are of a higher quality than civi ones?
Suprisingly sticks, I spent a bit of time trying to use wire saws, in the mid 1980's they were quite the rage. I found that they get stuck in logs, the teeth get gummed up with saw dust and don't cut properly and that they have a habit of snapping.
Perhaps they aren't meant for long term use? Rather just a few days at most?
Grow upThank you for you expert advice.
Perhaps you would like to pick on the other people on this thread who don't rate wire saws?
Or is it just my opinion that is wrong and useless? Because I'm "nothing but a novice".
thats a good piece of advise there,just make sure the branch doesn't hit you in the heador else you will be :I wouldn't regard myself as inept regarding knowing how to use a wire saw and I've seen many people using wire saws, that's why I wrote what I did.
To cut a branch that's out of reach tie two long pieces of line to each ring of the saw, tie a weight to one of the lines. Throw the weight over the high branch, pull on the lines and slowly and steadily saw through the branch.
