I've used this 10 inch folding saw for about 3 months and brought it on several camping trips. It works great, I have sawn through solid downed trees that were at least 10 inches in diameter. In the past few years, I used a clunky saw, but it was too heavy. So, using the right tool is important. This one is perfect for me. Moreover, it's easy to open and it locks just enough, so you don't get hurt. Well worth the bang for the buck!
