    Very nice. What are the sheaths made out of?

    The sheets are made from thick plastic report covers. The teeth protectors are made from the spines that come with them. Not sure what type of plastic it is.

    David,
    Super impressive! Once I saw your R&D thread about these, I was curious how quickly you'd put them into production. Very well done.

    Thanks everyone. I have sold the Modified Corona 13" pruning saw with basswood grip. All the other saws are still for sale.

    I can custom-make more Modified Corona 13" pruning saws with basswood grips, but it will take some time to order the new materials and fabricate.

    Will there be any more Modified Coronas or Japanese available?

    Yes. I just ordered some more Corona Blades to modify, which will ready in a week or two. I can also order more Japanese blades for those who want them. Same lead time.

    The saws look great David. I might buy one from you when the GGG comes around.

    The saw looks and works great. And it's crazy light. With a little duct-tape on the edges of the blade cover, I was able to do away with the plastic saw cover. Thanks!

    David,

    Great saw! I woke up this morning to find a tree limb had fallen from the tree in the yard. Yippee!! Got to try out the Corona! Cuts quick and easy. The limb was only about 2.5" in diameter, so it took literally seconds. Sharp!

    Thanks again!

    Hi David,
    with the sheat on is it safe to put the saw inside your pack? I mean does it come off easily?
    Thanks!

    Cheers

    Velimir,

    It is safe to put a sheathed saw in your pack. The sheath does not come off the saw unless you want it to, especially when packed. The teeth protector plus the sheath gives double protection.

    Of course the ultimate safest way to pack one of my larger saws is on the outside of your pack, like inside a pocket flat against the body of the pack, across the top of your pack, rolled into a foam sleeping pad if you use one, or similar.

    I admire your ingenuity. How do you attach the basswood handles?

    I attach the basswood grips with epoxy glue against the metal, then dip in Plasti Dip to enclose and bind everything. Sort of a belt and suspenders approach.

    Dang I could have sworn the title said 'straws'. I was about to revert to thinking this place is a little too hardcore for me after all again. Those saws look nice though.

    Use of straws on BPL…
    diy firestarter
    flexair pillow
    filter
    other ?

    and back on topic
    I'd like to get one of the japanese saws, I don't want something too long to put in my pack.
