386 computer? You are dating yourself my friend!I was in my basement apartment in Alameda when that happened. I thought it was "just another earthquake" until it kept going . . . and a power surge fried my new 386 computer . . . and it kept going . . .
I just don’t understand everyone’s love for the Silky Saw.
I personally went for a 21 inch Sven Saw. Finding the right axe to go with it is on my list of things
The PocketBoy is small and its lightweight (around 6 ounces)..it’s a great little saw for a BOB or to pack for a backpacking or camping trip..I personally haven’t found a saw that better suits me for this particular situation.its obviously not idea for sawing through large logs but works great for anything with a diameter of up to 6” which is plenty big enough for anything I would ever need it for camping,backpacking or bugging out..I live in East Tennessee in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and can usually find all the wood I need on the ground for a fire from all the fallen limbs and downed trees..a heavy duty machete like a ESEE Junglas,Tops Storm Vector,Becker BK9,OKC RTAK2,etc paired with a smaller fixed blade like a Mora Garberg,BRKT Aurora,Bradford Guardian 4.5,ESEE 3,etc and a good small lightweight saw and my bases are pretty well cover...I know,I know,an axe or a hatchet is better for chopping and splitting wood than a large knife/heavy machete is and I would never argue against that but where I’m at a large knife/heavy machete works best for me and my needs..I will occasionally bring out an axe or a hatchet but mostly if I plan on chopping a lot of wood or when it’s cold and everything is frozen solid,which is pretty rare in my areasThe silky is just too heavy. I use an opinel.
