My only regret is not getting the longer chain right now. This works well. You have to give yourself about 15-20 minutes to learn to use it properly, and once you figure it out, you will fly through most any piece of wood. The trick that I learnt is not to keep the chains parallel as you are cutting, but keep them about 45 degrees from the center point of your cut. If you keep that in mind, itll go smoothly. If the chain is too close together you will bind on the wood, too far apart and your arms go through muscle failure.

I have finally received this pocket chain saw and today went into the woods to try it out. Well, this product impressed me so much that I will order one more. First off, this saw sliced through a 5-inch diameter still in ground pine stump in a matter of under 2 minutes. In this position it would have taken me at least 3 times longer if I had used a heavy duty carpenter hand saw. One person can comfortably use this chain saw to quickly get a lot of firewood. FORGET ABOUT USING MACHETE FOR FIREWOOD HACKING -USE THIS SAW INSTEAD!
The little downside is that the chain saw is most effective for cutting old trees or stumps still standing upright. Anything that's on the ground requires more applied effort like stepping on the tree limb to give it enough weight to counter the sawing motion.
All in all, an excellent product, made in U.S.A.!!! Everybody must have it! I suggest get a 36 inch long chainsaw rather than 24 inch, because the end loops lengths combined are almost half of the length of the actual saw.

...have no chance when you put this little pocket chain saw to work. Very sharp and very portable. This is a tool that you will want in your camping gear, your BOB or BIB, or your WTSHTF gear.

It is well constructed and I found the 36" length to be ideal for one-person use. It does take a little coordination on your part to use but does an excellent job. Don't try to force to work; use long and sure strokes and the chain works on its own almost.

When I was setting up a very basic camping kit, one of the things I purchased was this Chainmate Survival Saw. One of the suggestions that John "Lofty" Wiseman made in his SAS Survival Handbook was to purchase a flexible saw to put in a survival kit. He also recommended adding certain items to an old tobacco tin (or something along those lines). I agreed with Wiseman's suggestions and decided to add a few things to this basic survival/camping packet in an old tobacco tin and seal it with masking tape. Some of the things that will fit in a tin are Tinder Fire Quick Tabs, an Emergency Fire Starter, and some UCO Stormproof Matches. Together they can figuratively (and perhaps literally) be a lifesaver when you need to start a fire in inclement weather.

This flexible Chainmate Survival Saw is much more compact that many others that come with large rings. Wiseman says that when you get your saw, in order to protect it "from rust and breakage cover it in a film of grease" and that these saws "can be used to cut even quite large trees." I haven't attempted any large trees, but I have no doubt that if need be I wouldn't have a problem. This 24-inch saw is in a convenient pouch that can be tucked inside a backpack or, if you prefer, can be worn on a belt. This Chainmate Survival Saw is a fantastic bargain that you might want to add to your list of "needs" and "must haves" to your camping/survival pack.

After this video was shot we cut through a hardwood tree 8" in diameter. It took a few minutes, but it was amazingly easy. We used the 24-inch Chainmate for this video.

There have been a number of mixed reviews, but I satisfied my curiosity when I used this on a recent camping trip to harvest firewood. It performed very well. I cut easily through branches up to six inches in diameter. It was even easier when utilized by a two-person team for larger trees.

A good deal of our success with this was based on proper technique, like keeping the chain straight (no lateral stress), and using long, even strokes. We didn't experience any gumming up of the teeth, but we were cutting mostly dry wood. It is also useful to not cut fully through any log or limb, and to simply break it with a sharp kick or blow when down to the last inch. The chainmate's cutting radius is limited when wrapped around a branch into a "U" versus keeping it straight and sawing.

For the size and weight, and capability this trumps any other cutting tool for lightweight backpacking, camping, canoeing or any other purpose where weight is a consideration. Would also be ideal for an emergency bag or BOB.

I can't see any defects in the quality or manufacturing. Care has to be taken to keep it straight during cutting or you could bend or torque the chain. It can be sharpened with a standard chainsaw tooth file (with a vice), and should be lubricated before being stored (moisture from the branches can cause rust in the high-carbon teeth I found).

This tool work exactly as advertized, was a great value and surprised all my camping companions (and me)!
