Japanese Style Pull-Cut Folding Pruning Saw - Added in Spring 2020
It took a little bit over a year, but I now have this folding pruning saw in my yard and garden toolset. Last March, I shared a photo of a Fiskars folding pruning saw that I saw at Walmart and realized that I could put it to good use.
We have plenty of limbs that fall from the trees in our yard that are too big to 'crack' but too small to pile up and process with a more formal saw. Couple that dynamic with the fact that I don't own a chainsaw and you'll start to understand how I could use this saw.
Look at the pile of limbs from that large downed Oak limb in this post for the type of cuts that I'd use this saw for in our yard.
Here's a look at the saw below - out of the package:
The back of the package includes an interesting nugget in terms of what this saw is applicable for: wood, plastic and BONE (up to 4"). Bone, people!
I haven't been great about keeping all my garden tools in one spot - in a way that makes them easy to turn to when I'm puttering around the yard. Something like this - garden storage box - made of a 1x12 that I can hang on my fence might be a good solve. I could tuck in this saw, some pruners, gloves, espalier wire and other hand tools in the box and have them on hand when they're needed. More on that at some point, but it sure would look good in Go Away Green, right?
