Squirt with wood saw?
« on: March 17, 2017, 02:18:09 PM »
Hi

Been considering a Gerber Dime for a bit but I'd ideally like a woodsaw on something of a similar size to a Dime or a LM Squirt. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

 :think: Not sure if they make.anything in that size range with a saw.  Don't really know that a saw that size would be able to cut muh either ??? You might end up with like 3 or 4 teeth on it and that's it :rofl:

 :rofl: That's a fair point! Maybe even any kind of serrated blade. Not looking for anything particularly large really, Perhaps it's just wishful thinking.

Serrated blade on the other hand  :think: You might find a MT with one of those and that would be far more useful :tu: but unfortunately I don't know of any myself off hand :think: :oops:

No problem - thanks for the comments! I'll keep looking! I don't like to carry my SAKs or other blades with me every day as I work in a university and I'm in and out of classrooms and such, but a small, keychain size MT with saw or serrated blade would be good for what I need (cutting dead branches clean, as opposed to snapping etc)

I can totally undestand that :cheers: as schools here are suppose to be blade free zones but something smaller like that wouldn't be under as bad of scrutiny  :tu:

I was just about to post a reply saying you needed a SAK then saw (saw geddit  ;)) your last post.

Still really sounds like a SAK job to me though - Is it really such a problem to carry a SAK??
Don't UK laws say you can carry a blade under 3 inches - ie a SAK!!

If it is a probo - How about a mod to a Huntsman or such like to take out the blade - Or even a Handyman mod then you get pliers too

As far as school carry goes, I think a SAK is just as safe as any other thing with a blade, although it would be smart to remove them completely (Just dont get any knife out under questionable circumstances or with people you dont know around) Everyone and their uncle knows what a Swiss army knife is and most don't see it as a weapon. I will refrain from commenting on those that do...

I too think that a saw that small would be useless. A nice serrated blade can be useful in that size, though, like the one on the Gerber Splice

Aren't there some smaller SAK-s (as in smaller than 91mm) that come wit a saw?

Maybe something like: https://www.victorinox.co...st-Victorinox/p/0.2373.T2

I cant't imagine anyone would see that as a weapon...

Thats still much bigger than any saw you could fit on a squirt.

I agree, but this is probably the smallest saw that is in any way useful...  :D

Thanks for the replies all.

It's not so much the idea that people may see it as a weapon but due to the nature of my work I'm kind of in an our of restricted areas within the institution and I wouldn't want to empty my pockets with a LM or SAK or anything, IF there is something that can do the job as a keychain tool.

Hadn't thought of the MFV - thanks for that Lister.

Maybe I was misleading in my original post - I should have stated any keychain/smaller MT/SAK. I'll have a think about it.

There is another option If a saw is all you need. Wire saws, while I have nothing but utter contempt for them, they do saw, and are in no way weapon-y. Well, except maybe as a garrote.  :D

But they break easily if you don't use them properly, and even if you do they break easily. :D The trick is to not bend them while you saw with them, keep your hands as wide apart as you can.

I have this one, a True Utility Mini Multi Tool (TU195), and while the saw is small it does cut well and overall I kind of like this tool. It's definitely bigger than a Squirt. Somewhere between a Squirt and a Juice.

I've got this same one (Cabela's branded) and agree that this may be the best bet. Alternatively, there is this tool out there that is roughly the same size as a Micra that has a saw, but it is not very robust: http://www.berkley-fishin...fishing-tool/1285898.html

I have one and it is ok for very light work. I keep it in the office; the pliers are not strong at all. They're branded under a million different names.

The Coast Micro Toolbox had one, which worked pretty good.  I had one as a kid, and still do.  They're hard to find now--I bought mine around 10 years ago and they appear to have been discontinued long ago.   But, it was short and was really useless on most of the stuff that needed cut.

Sorry I'm a bit late on this thread, but I just wanted to say that if your favourite multitool doesn't have a saw, and you need one, then you can do worse than making something like this from plastic pipe and a bit of hacksaw blade:
http://www.instructables....-Two-Bladed-Pocket-Knife/
Kydex would be even better but plastic pipe is good enough.  I keep one in my bike toolkit.  A coarse hacksaw blade works fine on wood as well as metal or plastic. On mine I have the saw blade the other way round to the one in the instructable, i.e. in pull-saw orientation.

Cool idea. One made with LM parts sounds great.  :D

A Squirt with one of these for a friend? http://www.derma-safe.com/product/utility-saw/

Did you ever try using those to cut a branch? They don't work all that well. In fact, when I was evaluating saws to add to my edc I tried a lot of them. Wire saws worked better for me than one of these, and I bought three with different teeth count. And sak mostly beat anything that wasn't bigger. Size does matter when it comes to certain tools...  :D
