Another Cutting question-Can Spirit cut barbed wire?
« on: February 13, 2007, 03:17:20 PM »
This is a follow up to the last question I posted about the Spirits ability to cut various type of wire. Has anyone been able to cut barbed wire with the Spirit? I know it may seem like a silly question, but just this past weekend I had to cut some with my SOG powerlock because it was dangling dangerous low over a hiking path I had been traversing.

I guess it depends really, on the thickness and the type of wire.  If it is multiple strands of wire then you will likely encounter the same problem as you did with the cable.  Fibrous metal resists cutting quite well.

I have seen some barbed wire that is fairly thin and likely would be cut with ease by the Spirit.  I have also seen some heavy duty stuff (I worked in jails for three years) that can only be cut by the jaws of life.

But, better to have the tools with you to try out than to not have the tool and never know!


Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.
