I have wanted a pocket chainsaw since I was a boy, It would be simple enough to buy one, but it seems I never got a round tuit, that is until Sumpri offered me a chance to review their folding pocket chainsaw and fire starter kit.
I had great plans to take this chainsaw out and throw a line over a high tree limb and use the saw with some paracord – unfortunately, when I got out to the land it started raining, and I got my truck stuck in the mud.
While a pocket chainsaw is great for a lot of things, I couldn’t use it to get unstuck (well I guess I could have cut limbs to make a timber winch or to throw under the tires).
The saw was well made, and it was sharp. I found that it pulled easily (better with long strokes) and cut smoothly. The firestarter is a typical ferocerium rod – it creates hot sparks and is of normal quality. I do wish the case was a little stronger, but it was above average for these types of gear.
