The Pocket Chain Saw

pocket chain saw review

Whether you’re car camping or hiking the backcountry, one thing for certain is you’re going to be dealing with cutting wood. It might be for a campfire to clear a trail or even build a shelter, but you’ll be breaking bark.

Able to outperform a wire saw or hatchet, and far lighter and more compact than a bow saw or even a folding saw, the Sportsman Industries Pocket Chainsaw is your indispensable outdoors companion.

The 36-inch-long chain features bi-directional, self-cleaning teeth so it cuts with every pull, ripping through everything from branches to full 5” or 6” trunks in seconds. The 4.5 stars out of 1,330 Amazon ratings are proof this will be the last camp saw you’ll ever own.

A drop of WD40 is all it needs before its first use, and the teeth can be sharpened just as you would with a powered chainsaw. The 4.8-ounce Pocket Chainsaw comes with its rugged pouch and a free magnesium fire starter.
