Hamer, I saw a Bahco brand folding pruning saw in our local hardware store yesterday that had what looked to me like the ideal small pruning teeth, triangular teeth about 3/16 deep rather than the long aggressive teeth.  It was longer overall than the Silky, but would fit easily in a pack or large pocket.  My Silky is the smallest Pocket Boy, 130 mm.  I carry a ratchet bypass pruning shear as well as the saw and use it to cut anything under about half an inch diameter, and have cut limbs to an inch thick with it. 

Be assured that my only concern is to improve the environment by cutting gaps to see through or shoot through and cutting branches to build a hiding place, where nature was lacking.

Hopefully no one here is the least bit concerned about you trimming some trees. Now if you do it with a bulldozer in the Redwood forest that might be a different story.   :rolleye:

As a side note: Eat a beaver and save a tree!   :yoyo:    :yoyo:    :yoyo:

Even out here on the prairie I'd let you cut trees as them buggers grow way to fast.

 You could prune trees for the rest of your life here and it wouldn't even make a dent, New Hampshire is 95% forested  :yoyo: Bahcos are pretty good.  Best wood pruner is a tomahawk and they look cool  :biggrin:

Thanks again Ok! I'm looking for a small folder that will fit in the box call pocket on my turkey vest. Not sure I'll find a good one that small. If I don't then I'll look into your suggestions. Right now where I turkey hunt it's just getting THICK. The hand pruners still work but the branches are getting a little heavy for them now.

Glen,
Buck made a model 428 that had interchangeable blades.  I can't remember for sure if they made a bone saw blade for it or not.  I have a couple of the 428s but the closest blade to a saw was the serrated one - which like most other serrated blades can do a puncture in your finger in nothing flat.   :iroll:  I think that I read that somewhere because and it couldn't have happened to me - recently.
