    Swedish Axe choices

    Thinking of getting a trangia

    I've got a pocket rocket and Coleman stove since....... but they're an idiot proof right of passage, won't let you down, and the more the wind seems to blow the faster they cook (if vents turned into the wind)! I'd sooner part with my others if I had too stick with one. Trigg

    Which Silky saw?

    https://www.arborlab.com.au/flat-diamond-shaped-file.html Just googled it etc.... if I'd have answered from memory I think my research would have been 5-8 yrs out of date.

    Which Silky saw?

    In response, I didn't 'discount' a folding one, I wanted a fairly heavy duty hand saw, looked what tree surgeon s and the likes were using and went with one I could sharpen. Looking at the size of it it'd be a bit of a mammoth folder.... but I do know silky do some mammoth folders also!

    Which Silky saw?

    Again (sorry) not a folding one. I have a Sugoi, fairly long curved blade. I got it for doing some minor tree work. One of the main points for me was that this particular blade could be sharpened. Some of the others can't. I'm not disapointed with it, and as a result use the chain saw less.

    Learn to use and maintain a chainsaw?

    A few years ago I did the CS30 & CS31 for a week at Myerscough college. A bit excessive for a farm user some might think. But good course, learned a lot.
