As an avid bowhunter I have had the pleasure of experiencing that thrill and exhilaration of discovering a new hunting area that shows tremendous sign and potential. However; as any bowhunter knows, hunting a new area usually means hours and hours of prep work during the summer months will be needed in order to get your new hunting spot ready for hunting season in the fall. This of course can be a daunting task especially when you think about the hellish 90+ degree temperatures, cuts, scratches, mosquitoes feasting on what seems like every last drop of blood in your body, dense thick brush needing to be cleared and a whole heap of hard tiring work ahead of you.
Any bowhunter that has ever had to do prep work on a new hunting spot will tell you that one of the most important and crucial tools is a good quality hand saw that will be able to rip through small branches, dense brush, and vines. Today I want to give you my opinion about this hand saw as well as some detail about my experience with Wicked Tree Gears’ Wicked Tough Hand Saw in the field.
Wicked Tough Hand Saw – Description and Specifications
The Wicked hand saw features a rugged cast aluminum handle with a non-slip rubber over-molding designed for an ergonomic comfortable feel in your hands. The blade is an impulse hardened high carbon steel which delivers a fast smooth cutting blade that has been designed to eliminate binding. This tough blade will not bend or break like a lot of the other competition out there today. The Wicked Tough Hand Saw has an overall length of about 8.25″ closed and 14″ open and weighs only about half a pound.
Wicked Tough Hand Saw – My Experience
Simply put I brought the Wicked Tough Hand Saw out to the area I planned on hunting later that fall and started clearing out some hunting lanes and prepping a few trees for my tree stand. This area was older and had become overgrown with thick dense brush that I was certainly not looking forward to tackling in the sweltering heat of July. I opened the saw up and began tackling the daunting task of getting rid of a lot of tree branches, vines and thickets that were littering my shooting lanes. The first thing I noticed about the Wicked Hand Saw was that the grip and shape of the handle felt really solid and comfortable in my hands, like it had been designed to fit my hand and was by far the most comfortable hand saw I had ever used hands down.
It didn’t take long for me to realize I had stumbled across a rare hand saw. Whether cutting through smaller or larger tree branches the Wicked hand saw took them down with barely the effort I had been so used to using with other hand saws. When I came to areas thick with vines I swung at them with the Wicked Hand Saw like a machete and it cut through them like a hot knife in butter. I was both impressed and thrilled at how quickly the Wicked Tough Hand Saw was making it through the thick brush and most of all that it hadn’t broken or failed after all of the abuse I had put it through.
After 100′s of cut branches, vines and twigs the Wicked Tough Hand Saw was still as sharp and cut just as well as it did when I took it out of the package. This truly is a remarkable hand saw that in my opinion blows the competition out of the water. The bottom line is that the Wicked Tough Hand Saw is extremely comfortable, durable, and sharp. I would strongly recommend to any bowhunter out there looking for an easier more comfortable way to clear out shooting lanes and trees for tree stands.
