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.

I just picked up a SharkSaw Pullsaw for landscaping. 7 1/2" blade with 12TPI. Comes with a sheath and folds to 9 3/4".  It fits in my turkey vest in the box call pocket nicely. I picked it up at Woodcraft for $14 which was 1/2 price. This saw has a blade replacement # etched into the blade as well.   

I have a pine limb on the ground out back. It took 9 pulls to get thru approximately 1 1/2" being gently aggressive. This saw demands at least 6" of respect for the offhand.

Thank You all for your time and i sincerely hope you've had a good recovery Ok!! 👍👍

 There are a couple of companies that make handles  that take Sawzall blades.

Good find!  Thanks for posting that video.  The saw with the carbide Sawzall in the video is terrific.  Except that, like HaMer said, it does not fold the teeth out of the way when carrying it.  It has to fold for my use.  I have a big bow saw and a chain saw in the vehicle so these small saws are mostly for carrying away from a vehicle.

I am thinking of cobbling up one of those Sawzall units myself, and adding a scabbard or sleeve of some kind to cover the teeth when disassembled.  I have a fiberglass tube from the handle on a worn out rake that might do for the saw handle.   I don't plan to backpack it much, though I carry a small folding saw when hunting.  Some 25 years ago I fixed up a light weight compass saw and made a light sheath for it to keep the teeth from cutting stuff in my pack, and carried it on some serious backpack hunts.  The saw in the video is much better.

 It does have a blade guard to cover the teeth when transporting. Generally for hunting I prefer a blade like my Fiskars hatchet or my tomahawk just for cutting small branches and clearing shooting paths and stuff like that I also have a pair of ratcheting pruners.  Saws generally work better for camping type activities where you're cutting firewood.  I also always carry a roll of camouflage para cord and a lot of times if theres branches in my way where I'm sitting I will just pull it back and tie it off to the tree or sometimes tie it off and make a field blind out of it.  There's plenty of options out there and there's always the option of like when I was a kid hunting if there was a branch in the way I would grab it with my hands and break it ha ha.

The Stihl saw would be good if I owned land. Hunting public land is different. I only cut a very minimum of branches. I do like the sawzall blade holder a lot. I can see it being useful in roofing & construction from time to time as well.

Thats a nice looking saw for sure. Great for around the house and if I owned land. That saw tooth configuration was used to build America!
