Pros: Edge Retention, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Use
Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Material, None
I like the sheath and the option of fine or coarse blades. The handle feels good in hand, but that is where the positive aspects of this review end. The part where the blades exchange started to come apart (the rotation joint) and the seam in the handle is making a run towards splitsville. This condition is preventing the blade from consistently locking. Tightening the pin to alleviate the lock-up trouble has become futile and I can't take the handle apart (not held together by screws) to investigate further. The blades bend a bit too much, but that doesn't bother me as much as the lock failing. Another reviewer eluded to this saw being employed in their "go-bag". I protest. The inevitable demoralizing failure of this saw in a "go-bag" scenario is not worth the weight of carry.
