In this photo, you’ll see my latest acquisitions. Fiskars used to be a good brand, but I got these in Chinamart, so naturally they were made in China. The bow saw is a 21 inch and the folder is what I’d call 6-1/2 inch (of teeth). I got tired of trying to make do with the soft metal of the bow saw blades carried by ACE Hardware, and my regular (antique) pruning saw is on my bench, disassembled, ready to be refurbished a bit. SO, since I have a little work I wish to do before dog days end, I decided to splurge a little. The saws ran about $10 each, and while the bow saw has hardened teeth, the folder should be sharpenable. I like having a folder that fits in my jeans pocket. I actually have another one, but it’s in my “emergency” box in my truck, and I didn’t want to have to dig it out every time I wanted one. Pretend you don’t see the cookie crumb.
