Folding Saw

The great thing about a folding saw is that anybody can fit one in their backpack when going out for a day hike. Wether you're on a work trip or just out for a leisurely hike, it's nice to have one if you see a nuisance branch or small tree that has blocked a clear path on the trail. Don't underestimate the size of this little saw. They can cut through inches of branch with little effort when used properly. Another use for this saw is when you're digging a trail and you

can't get through a thick root. By cutting the root in two places you can surgically remove the problem rather than trying to brute force your way through it. Folding saws are sold at any tool store and some department stores. There are different sizes and can have wooden, metal or plastic handles.
