I like it and everything but it can be better. Thin blade. Looks cheaply made. Will cut down a tree. Careful with the lock button, if you’re slicing away at something and press that the blade will pop back with pressure. Nothing that should hurt you but it’s alarming the first couple times.
i have been on a quest for finding a pocket size saw. I have tried three and while this one has features i like, there are some features I absolutely don't like. The blade is probably the thinnest of the three and will tend to bend if the saw catches on the forward stroke. That is not the worst sin, but this saw will also come out of lock and bend slightly up - not harming your hand - but more than once it has given me cause for thought.
On the plus side, the lever action lock is easy to use, and the blade stays in good alignment when closing. The carrying case is much nicer than most. I own several SOG knives and have never really been disappointed. I do know that SOG focuses on keeping things light and they have definitely accomplished that with this saw. I would love this saw with a little heavier blade
