    I got one of these "survival" chainsaws for under 5 USD as the very idea seems interesting, super portable and light. But either I am to stupid to operate it or these kind of saws are really not good. See my epic fail:

    1. Gotta let the blade do the work. Seems like you are putting too much strain on it a lot of the time.
    2. Cutting up from bottom binds on logs
    3. Thick profile for blade is not conducive to hand use
    4. 10" Folding limbing saw blows this away, even an 8" would.
