The Spiral Wire Camp Saw falls between the Spiral Pocket Saw and the Spiral Wire Military Saw. This version utilizes a heavier duty cutting blade, .050 instead of the .040 utilized on the Spiral Wire Pocket Saw. It also incorporates larger rings for longer term cutting and a stainless steel blade. Because of the heavier duty materials, the Spiral Wire Camp Saw is a little larger than the Spiral Wire Pocket Saw, but is still very compatible. Lightweight and compact, it can be coiled up and easily included in survival and camping kits. The Spiral Wire Camp Saw will cut just about anything including metals, plastics, ceramics, adhesives, rubber, wood and bone. Easy to handle, the Spiral Camp Saw does not readily cut skin.
Traditionally, Survival Wire Saws have utilized wire strands as the cutting surface. This resulted in a ”good” saw that could cut moderately well through wood, thin aluminum, and bone. The main issue with traditional wire saws is that there are inconsistencies with the way the wires are wrapped. The traditional wire saw does not present a consistent cutting surface and the wire has a tendency to “snag”. This can result in a broken wire, either in the strands where knots and smaller wires form a weak spot in the wire, or the connections to the rings or handles from the sudden shock to the wire when the wire snags.
The Adventurer Spiral Wire Camp Survival Saw utilizes an entirely different blade in that is “spiral” in design. Distributed by Best Glide ASE, this Survival Saw is more versatile and much safer than any flat blade, as the unique spiral design allows cutting in any direction. Made of stainless steel, all edges of the spiral blade are cutting edges. This type of survival saw has been used by the U.S. Military for over 30 years.
