    Gave the Silky a try this morning on the way to pick up this.

    The tooth technology on the likes of the Bacho is amazing - I used them heaps in the orchard - cuts vines like butter - the saw is so compact when folded
    But donít overlook some old technology in a slasher - this one is sixty years old that I know about and I can remember my Dad using it back then
    I carry it in my trapping pack everywhere I go - gorse, vines, ponga ferns, bracken fern, small trees - they donít argue with this tool - the blade shape pulls a vine towards you - I just had the original handle out and re-seated it about 25mm deeper - but might be a bit heavy for longer hunting trips

    Looks similar to my bill hook that came out of the UK. Mines a bit thicker wih a straight blade on the back of it with more 'point' to the 'hook'
    Was using an ex forestry service slasher the other day. When working summer job for doc at uni they were putting them in the skip

    Question is what are you fellas, see what I did there fellas and saws..... never mind.

    What do you guys find a good saw for chucking in your day pack and cutting the odd track or lookout?

    Another Fiskar or Silky or something else?
    cant go wrong with either cant think of another brand that would be as good

    Bahco 21" bow saw?

    Occasionally the teeth need resetting as the width of the cut slowly narrows with use. Cheap enough to leave behind at huts when necessary.
