Wire Camping Saw
This can be used to cut a variety of different materials such as branches, bone, and soft metals such as aircraft aluminum.
The wire saw can cut in places you wouldn't be able to get with a larger saw. The benefit in this is obvious to an aircraft crash survivor or someone in the wilderness. Allows the survivor or the pilot to use the structural materials in the downed aircraft, passenger vehicle and/or environmental attributes (i.e. wood, branches) from the surrounding area to make shelters, tools etc.
The main issue with traditional wire saws is that there are inconsistencies with the way the wires are wrapped. The traditional wire saw does not present a consistent cutting surface and the wire has a tendency to “snag”. This can result in a broken wire, either in the strands where knots and smaller wires form a weak spot in the wire, or the connections to the rings or handles from the sudden shock to the wire when the wire snags.
This wire camping uses an entirely different blade in that it is “spiral” in design. Distributed by Best Glide ASE, this Survival Saw is more versatile and much safer than any flat blade, as the unique spiral design allows cutting in any direction. Made of durable stainless steel, all edges of the spiral blade are cutting edges.
Field tip: The saw can also be strung between the ends of a bent curved stick to make a bow saw. This survival tool idea is used by military pilots and special operations personnel worldwide.
