Best Glide ASE Spiral Military Wire Saw
The Best Glide ASE Spiral Military Wire Saw has been used by the U.S. Military for over 30 years. Originally, it was developed by the USAF for a pilot survival kit and is designated with the government specification NSN 5110-00-570-6896.
The Best Glide ASE Spiral Military Wire Saw comes with sturdy steel removable end fittings with heavy duty rings and (2) 20" cutting wires. Each unit is packaged in a kraft envelope and comes with a spare blade.
The Best Glide ASE Spiral Military Wire Saw should not be confused with numerous wire saws that call themselves "military wire saws". This is the real thing.
This Spiral Wire Military Saw is "Official Military Issue", durable and ready for duty. The wire is much stronger than most saws available today, will cut longer and through just about anything.
Because of its super heavy-duty construction, the Spiral Wire Military Saw is larger than the Spiral Wire Pocket Saw or the Spiral Wire Camp Saw the two other wire saws available from Best Glide ASE. It is also the most durable.

The Best Glide ASE Spiral Military Wire Saw easily follows contours and allows tight and intricate cuts (including square and circular cuts) that are impossible to make with other saw blades. Spiral blades are easy to handle and do not readily cut human flesh, thus making them safer than other wire saws.
To make the best use of this saw, it is recommended that the blade be held as straight as possible to cut. This allows the Spiral Saw blade the maximum amount of cutting surface and keeps the saw from “binding” in the cut groove. The rings are made for you to place your thumbs in, as seen to the right. However, if extended use is anticipated, cutting is made easier by constructing a “bow” to string the Wire Saw in between.
