Conceived and developed in 1980, U.S. Patent 4,193,188 was first issued on march 18, 1980 to green mountain products of Norwalk, Connecticut. Since their introduction, numerous improvements, both mechanical as well as aesthetic, were made in a never ending effort to make our saws the best possible for our customers. For years a small hand made sign hung by the factory time clock which read: "check each saw before it leaves green mountain make sure it is perfect. The customer's life may depend on it. " over the years (since the early 1990's) we have receive numerous letters and tails recounting how well our saws performed in the field, praising them for their cutting ability as well as their endurance. Some by the U.S. Military which cannot be retold, some by members of the Colorado trail society, of golden, Co. A group funded by the U.S Federal government. Featured photos showing their member's prowess in maintaining just some of the 500 miles of hiking and biking trails which they clear each year without the use of gasoline powered equipment. Only green mountain saws, both high reaching models as well as all chain mate camping survival models with hand straps, are made in the United States of America in our Norwalk, CT. Plant

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.
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.
My main gripes are that this tool has one cutting tooth per three links. The teeth are single directional and alternate along the chain, meaning that in one direction there is only one cutting tooth per 6 links... very inefficient.
Because or the design, it feels as if you breaking through the work piece rather than sawing. It is not a pleasant experience for the hands.
The carry case is very cheaply made and not worth attaching to your belt as you may lose the tool this way. I will just stick to my older saw that fits in its tin the size of a pellet ammo tin.
The saw works as expected, it doesn't jam much at all. One only needs the wood to stay put which may be a challenge when trying to buck.
Cutting with it is quite a workout, a machete is often the better option because while slower, it won't drain you as much. It also depends on the wood, I did cut mostly cherry which is tough already. At least you don't strain your fingers - you put your hands through the webbing loops from inside out and it will stay bound to your wrists securely.
The chain is not the same as on power chainsaws. It is thinner, smaller and the knife bits lack the key that would otherwise fit into a chainsaw's stationary blade.
It arrived very sharp and I hope it will stay that way or I'll have to try diamond needle files.
After more experience with this, I have to add two more things: First of all, it's started to develop tiny specks of rust, so I picked out the debris in the links and oiled it. A stainless version, or zinc-plated at least, would be nice because you don't expect having to baby a tool like this. Granted, it's snow everywhere now and it won't get as wet in the summer.
And the other thing is the binding. If you are cutting anything thinner than 3 inches, as the trunk leans away from you, it will grab the chain in a nasty way. You should plan for this by first cutting the underside (or the inaccessible side) of the trunk with this saw, then finishing the job with a machete from the accessible side, avoiding the binding.
