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.
I have had this for over a year now, and never tried it out. I always meant to, but I forgot it was in the car. I just stuck it in my emergency bag. Today I went hunting, wanted to get out before dawn. Drove waaaay out into the mountains. It is Wednesday morning, so I figure no one will be out here and I will have the place all to myself. I was right. For miles and miles and miles, no other car tracks in the snow. On my way back out, a tree had fallen across the road in the heavy snow. I said two words and the first one was "Oh." I had my little bone saw, but this was a real tree, approx 2' diameter. No match for a 6 inch handsaw. Too heavy to lift and it was all wedged in other trees so I couldn't just push it with the car. I was debating walking the twenty miles out to try and find someone with a chainsaw or grabbing my hatchet and going all angry beaver on it. I figured I'd try the hatchet first, and I saw this mystery black pouch sitting next to it. Huzzah, the emergency saw! I ended up rigging a pulley on my trailer hitch, running a rope through and attaching each end to one of the handles. Wrapped a bit of branch in the rope, and sat on the tailgate and "rowing" like some redneck crew champion. I was amazed at how awesome it worked. I'm pretty sure this is a real chain from a chainsaw. It devoured that tree. I just ordered a few more so I can give them to friends and have a couple extra for me. Can't recommend this thing enough.
UPDATE- So as I mentioned, I ordered more. I was surprised that in the same box I received a couple different variations. One is exactly like my old one, the others are different. My original review was 5 stars. I am downgrading to 4 with the new ones. Let me explain the points that changed, and why I am downgrading. But first, this is not a regular chainsaw chain. When I looked at it closer, they had cutting teeth that cut in opposite directions (more efficient for a handsaw). A real chain has only one direction, since the chain only runs in one direction.
My original purchase and the "5 star" version:
-Came in a bag that had a "chainmate" cardboard hanger printed with the name, logo, etc. I'm not sure what you call it. But you know what I mean, the cardboard hanger with product in bag, it hangs on the hooks in a store...
-The carry case was heavy duty. Two layers of nylon fabric sandwiched with a layer of some sort of material. Slightly stiff, cut resistant, etc. Like a nice nylon holster. Keep in mind we are storing a thing that has several nasty little biting and cutting surfaces.
-The wrist wraps were very large, very easy to fit over gloves. And when you had to use it, you could grab onto the extra length instead of the chain. Very nice. When I figured I had to cut the trunk into several pieces to be able to move them off the road, I switched to the pulley system to save effort. But *please note*: I was able to try this out first, and slip it over gloves and grab the straps for extra pull. Keeping my gloves on was a huge plus for me. In winter conditions, it is very very hard to warm your hands up, and you can cold them up in an instant. Keeping gloves on is a huge factor for me.
-There is a triangle shaped piece of metal that rivets to the chain on one vertex, and then the opposite side has a slit that the strap (black nylon webbing) runs through. This was painted black and was sturdy and rust free.
The *3 star* version.
-Hence the 4 star rating. Average between the two.
-Came in a plastic bag, stapled shut, with a printed white label that said "chainmate" etc. Like if you went down to the store and bought a couple avery labels and printed it at home.
-The chain is the same. So I am assuming the chain part, with the multi directional teeth, is some sort of OEM product.
-The cary case is much smaller, one layer of nylon on the outside, the liner is cheap plastic and thin. Nicks everywhere. Remember, we are storing a chain with angry piranhas on it, and they decided to wrap it in something that isn't even as thick as a good contractor trash bag.
-The same triangle piece is "blackish" and has rust spots.
-The wrist straps... My goodness. This is where it is so different I would have made my original rating lower. They are so small, I can barely get my bare hands through them. And I'm not a giant guy. I'm 5'10". My hands are a bit big for my size, I suppose. I have big shoulders and hands and legs etc. for my height. But I am by no means a giant, or even very exceptional. And putting the two side by side, the straps are several inches shorter than in the Good Version.
So, if you do order this, (which I still think you should) if you get it in a pack that only has a white printed label, or it looks like someone just printed this at home and sent it to you, send it back immediately and order a new one, repeat until you get the version that actually looks like something they would have hanging in your local sports shop.
This thing EATS wood and weighs nothing!! It takes a little bit of effort but you can chew through a hardwood tree half a foot thick in literally a couple minutes; half that if you use two people (one on each end).
My only advice would be to spray it down with some wd-40 before you head out to smooth out the action and reduce kinks.
Would def. recommend if you're into winter/fall camping and overnight hunting.
