    To sharpen the saw you lay the whole blade flat, and take off a bit of metal. This will sharpen all the teeth at once(on one side). You can't do this forever, but I had one that lasted about 10 years.

    SwissBianco, responsible for the coolest SAK mods and limited runs I've ever seen, has done this with Victorinox.

    Now that and Mokume/Burl Scales...man oh man. I'd be scared to use it.

    Good to find other SAK lovers. It is one of those things you don't think you need till you carry one that suits you well, and then you go crazy without it. I carry my Sportsman anytime I exit my house, even when I walk my dog or check the mail in my pajamas.

    How did that escape me? This is how I sharpen everything that's serrated and inexpensive. Thinking too hard, I guess.

    I have used the saw with good success to cut thick plastic and similar materials. It works very well on those, better than on wood.

    Pardon my ignorance! What is SAK? I usually carry both a knife, and a saw with me when in the outdoors, but that is usually with a jeep.

    Who needs a saw anyway? What is wrong with the Bear G. way of cutting branches- angle your knife at it and beat the blade with a rock until it goes through? Isn't that the way its suppose to be done?
