Well, as I had mentioned earlier in the thread, I had severely dulled my SAK saw blade by accidentally cutting fireplace brick with it. I took a miniature diamond file set and attempted to sharpen it.
Bottom line: WAY TOO time consuming and laborious. I think a busy person is much better off either sending the SAK in for Victorinox to replace the saw or just getting another SAK.

I suppose if you have lots of free time or you enjoying sharpening for a hobby, you might like working on it. Given the condition of my saw, it would take well beyond 30 minutes. I don't have an extra 30 minutes of idle time.
So...sharpening the saw myself isn't going to work out.

An alternative to sending it to Victorinox? :whistle:

You might also try a local saw sharpener.

Never had the need to use it on wood, yet.
It does wonders on sheet rock.
I SAW this thread and had to comment.

Finally the wood saw came in super handy in an urban setting.  How do yo split the Mexican corn on the cob  ???

Worry not!   The wood saw had it covered!  I only got a few weird looks from people at nearby tables.   I was so happy to use the saw I did not let their shock spoil the experience for me.  :D

Awl the toppings made it a lil messy... But I imagine with a good angle and a clean cob, it's not too bad.

The teeth are so sharp and aggressive that I find the SAK saw to be faster than most of my other hand saws.

I agree with this! awesome design. Though, I love LM saws, too :)

I'm a wood butcher by trade and have been carrying the camper for over a year because of the woodsaw. I got a walker for Christmas as a smaller platform that included the woodsaw on it. Love them both and now I'm finding it hard to pick a new SAK that doesn't have a woodsaw on it. Feels incomplete without one

I love the large saws on the Trekkers (111mm) and Rangers (130mm). But I have many choices in smaller sized SAKs too.

Reading through this thread has inspired me to swap out my Super Tinker for my Emerald Huntsman Plus for a few days and see if the woodsaw earns its keep in my pocket.

Well Ron.....I am truly prepared to cut wood with a saw, but that big orange & white “SAK” in the back cuts more wood than all of the rest combined.  😜  I am however having problems finding a suspension clip that will work (let alone a pocket)......... :multi: :rofl:   :cheers:
