The Felco pruning saw is one of the very best as anything manufactured by Felco is.

I read the suggestions here some weeks ago. I picked up both a Coughlan (Dicks Sporting Goods) and a Corona (Ace Hardware) here in town. They both do an almost equal job as near as I can tell from a half dozen cuts. The Coughlan is lighter and more portable. The Corona is bigger, heavier, and flashier. I put the Coughlan in my truck. The Corona will be a gift to a gardening friend - well maybe(?).

 

I kind of think of them as wearing sunglasses while fishing. I would love an expensive pair of sunglasses, but if they fall in the lake and are lost, how much $$ am I willing to lose.

You probably want something with some aggressive teeth for cutting green, and outdoor forks. I use the Coghlan's folding Sierra Saw and
I love it. It cuts green wood fast. It's nice and lite in back pocket, and not expensive at all. I even modified one to
a 6 inch length for even easier carry.
I make walking sticks, and canes, so I've cut hundreds of sticks and of course forks with this saw. My .02. smile.png

 

Old topic but still a good one for the newer fellas. Cool stuff Sean. I use the same awesome and under $10 folder for bush crafting everything. Top notch for me. I also have their really sweet "Pocket Saw" for $7 here in Ottawa, which is now my EDC, shirt pocket sized, green wood cutter, no matter how small my other kits get. :) lb

The one I carry in the car or when I have a pack, is this one. It's awesome.

Agree with all those who say silky is the best.... it cuts through wood like a light saber

The Silky and Bahco both have good reputations within the bushcraft community.

The silky allows me to cut through wood quickly and quietly. Perfect for when you see that perfect fork, in a park...or a neighbors yard, or in a nature conservation area...

That's the spirit, but why stop there?

It allows for cutting of forks in zoos, cemeteries, school playground and when I see a good looking fork on protected land.

Does it cut through copper for when I see copper pipe laying around on construction sites? That stuff is worth a fortune and easy to liquidate

What size and blade aggression are people using for pruning forks?
