Folding Survival Saw - Derma Safe

Folding Survival Saw - Derma Safe

Product Review (submitted on June 2, 2014):
Having spent 10 years with a highend american tool company, I learnt a few things about saws. This saw is (exactly) similar to a reciprocating air saw blade, the smallest kind. The blade is about 2.5" in lenght, and is an "18tpi" blade, meaning there are 18 teeth-per-inch, an ideal for wood or rough cuts (fine plastic or steel cuts are easier with 24 or 32 tpi blades, but will cut with an 18tpi - 12tpi is also available direct from the factory and only by the case of 100). The blades are high quality swiss steel made by Bosch (a subsidiary, actually) in St Niklaus, Switzerland, high in the alps. Every supply arrives by train, and every blade leaves by train - straight through the mountain tunnels. The BEST saw blades on Earth come from this plant, and this plant sells more tool grade saw blades than any other globally. It has operated continuously since 1940 in St Niklaus.

In short; great tool, great blade. Not chinese junk. I highly recommend one for anyone who goes backcountry camping. At less than 8 grams you will not find a lighter, better saw on the market at any price. And for another 2$, add the derma-safe razor. It is everybit as awesome as the saw and then some.
