I have the 54volt dewalt chainsaw. That is one fine piece of kit, but alas it will not be coming on this trip. Would be great for track clearing.

Silky. And don't cut down living trees - especially in the vicinity of the hut.

A Silky saw. Light enough to be taken in in a walk in trip. Brilliantly sharp.

Do a lotta track work. This saw is like gold at times.

I got a bow saw and a folding saw this morning, then got home and read this again and thought I have made some sort of mistake might take the folding saw back and get a silky.
Can't believe I did that.
Happy with my bancho bow saw though.

The curved tip machette is very practical for chipping small slices off a branch directly into a fire pit to make a very hot and fast burning fire.

Ahhh right, just realised you guys were writing Silky Saws and not Silky Draws.
It makes a lot more sense but I will have some explaining to do when my mail order arrives.
