    And also, the handle shape doesn't have to match the blade shape. with my Ibuki I made my own handle and made it more 90 degrees to the blade so it's less tiring to use.

    Good post mate, my feelings exactly. Even ground working there’s a need to put the saw down to use your hands. Dropping the Zubat into a scabbard is a lot easier than folding the BigBoy and putting it on the ground or into a pack.

    I really like my Super Accel, think it's a 210 but I'd have to check. Not been doing so much of late butI really want to make a folding or packable bucksaw. Another thing on the never-ending to do list...sheesh.
