Victorinox Wood Saw

The wood saw on Victorinox Swiss Army knives is about 2 7/8" (72mm) long. It is extremely sharp, and cuts on both the pull stroke and the push stroke.

Swiss Army Wood Saw
Uses: The wood saw works best in materials less than 2" in diameter-- we have used it to cut through a piece of 2x4 lumber (40mm x 80mm) in less than a minute.

You can use the wood saw to cut wider pieces of firewood by making two cuts in a "v" shape, working all around the outside until it is narrow enough to snap.

WARNING: Use light pressure when sawing, and be careful that the saw doesn't bind, since it can bend at the base and eventually snap off, if pushed with too much force.
