Ok let`s do some professional information on the 111mm Services Range Wood saw.
This is the wood saw that was tested complete
over several years and on any type of materials I could find. It is made of stainless steel and it got the cut teeth that work both ways. The tip is made so you can use it to hollow with. A destruction test is in many ways a failed test so I am glad that this
wood saw is alive and kicking. It does not require a lock because it is the correct motion that is the key to the best functionality. The angle on this is a bit over hand so it will never accidental close during correct use. The durability is very high on
this design and it is a multi-tool in its own and this wood saw together with the main blade makes this a competitor against large fixed blade outdoors knives. It is made to be used on wood, bone, fabrics and rope if necessary.
The best way to learn about the correct use is to try it out and to learn that it is not about using too much force when you cut. You can adjust the angle with the hand for the best motion and to make it rip into the material controlled.
It is important to have a good grip that is secure so you avoid slipping. There is flexibility in the steel so it will take some hard using without bending. It is important that you have a straight during motion so you avoid damage. If you do not follow a
straight line then you put more strain on the construction and design. It will also make it heavier to cut. This wood saw 9cm long and the cut section approx. 8,5cm long.
tool takes strong cold and warm weather as well. It is also possible to sharpen it if necessary but that I can say is usually never required from normal use. I exceeded every limit that is possible in my philosophy. The
advantage with this is that you can cut large branches and small tree`s with little problem. Softer wood or harder wood it will cut it for sure.
It is smart to clean the saw a bit
before you close it in the body of the knife so you avoid substances into the mechanism.
The hardening is perfectly done by Victorinox and the steel with construction the same.
The design of the wood saw is made to be able to hollow with and it tapers in thickness all across the design. The inner section is approx. 1,50mm at the teeth and on the back it is approx.
1,25mm. On the middle of the saw the teeth is approx. 1,50mm and on the back it is approx. 1,30mm. At the tip section the teeth are approx. 1,50mm while the back is 1,40mm thick. There are probably some variations as well. The design is correct for the best cutting performance and durability. It got flexibility in the complete design and the tip section will not bend.
During use it is unavoidable
the tip section will take some extra abuse. In some cases you would have to cut around a small tree because you cannot cut the entire tree because it is not long enough. The design is complete.
wood saw is on the New Solder 2008 type knife and that is no surprise.
In the history of SAK the cut section got variations on the angle they are grinded. On SAKs the design used today is
the absolute best possible because it is a more versatile design. It is not just made for wood.
During use it is important to have a good grip and avoiding hand fatigue. This you can only
learn from practice. Do not use the entire body into the motion. Be relaxed in the body and focus on the correct motion. Remove some dust and wood particles from time to time. This will avoid the saw from just sliding over the material. Remove some from the
cut teeth as well because this will also prevent it from just sliding over the material and the result is that people use much strength and get fatigued.
