The Pocket Chainsaw is a sturdy alternative to a wire saw. While still light and compact (5 ounces and it fits in the provided tin), it is made of high strength, heat-treated steel, making it much more durable than a wire saw. It also requires less energy to cut firewood, clear a campsite or trail, or to cut wood for a shelter. The 28-inch blade is coated for rust resistance and has 124 bi-directional teeth, so every stroke is cutting the maximum amount.
We tested the Pocket Chainsaw against other competitors, and were surprised to find how much quicker and easier it worked than other more expensive alternatives. The Pocket Chainsaw can cut a 3" diameter limb in less than 10 seconds! (Check out the official Pocket Chainsaw video below) Because of the shape of the teeth and the thin blade, it provides a very smooth bi-directional cut. This is a great tool to have in your survival pack or with your camping gear.
The only thing we could find wrong with it was that the metal rings weren't comfortable at all. Fortunately, we have a ton of paracord laying around, and found that a couple of wrist loops were the ticket! So we've decided to include some paracord wrist loops with every purchase of the Pocket Chainsaw. You're welcome!

I got this little guy for a big upcoming camping trip. Honestly wasn't expecting much but with all the people going I wanted something for them to use since I always carry my trusty machete. This thing is a monster I tested it out on a 5 inch pine and it took 90 seconds to cut by myself ! I'm ordering another to keep in my car. I recommend this to everyone.

I had just bought this pocket saw from this site because I didn't think I could do better in price. When it arrived I was impressed with how compact it can be stored in it's own tin, like a can of chewing tobacco.
SurvivorGeek even gives you paracord to make the handles easier on the hands! I could wait till my next hiking trip to use test this saw out...
Well, careful what you wish for. The winds picked up at home and it rained, hard, We heard a loud crash, thud and someone scream. A very thick tree branch broke off and landed between the neighbor's car and our east wall. No one was hurt but a young lady was stuck in her car because the doors were pin by a large branch plus it pushed the car up against a wall pin the other doors.
With the girl's father on one end and me on the other, we worked as a team with the pocket saw and much to everyones surprise, we cut through that branch pretty *dang* quick! Just before Fire Depart pulled up. They helped us drag the cut piece away from the car doors and the girl stepped out OK.
The pocket saw was warm, if not hot to the touch but cooled down quickly and looks fine. Neighbor came back day later asking about the saw and where to get one. I told him I plan to order a few more, he can order with me. LOL!

A couple of weeks ago I went camping with some friends. We had brought some fire wood, the next morning brought snow flurries and a quickly diminishing wood pile. Noone had thought to bring a bow saw to cut any out in the woods. My friend, mister Survior Geek himself, pulls this little pocket saw out of his bag and I'm thinking "This will be short lived." My experince has been that pocket saws either snap before the dead branch is cut or get jambed tight and have to be abandonded, left to rust free in a season or two. Within a couple of minutes my buddy comes back with 3-4 cut logs. So cool new tool (that apparently worked), of course I had to try it. It was a downed seasoned hardwood tree so it took me about a 60 secs to slice though the 8in log. Next I got my wife to try it on a thicker section of the log (10-12 in across), granted it took her a couple of minutes. But she came out all smiles.
Needless to say I got two.
