Monthly item search- Backpack saw.

As part of my "Try to write more blog content" We are going to look for a backpack/camping saw.

Must be around $15-$20 max.
Must be suitable for sawing branches around arm thickness.
Space/weight considerations are paramount. This is to help gather firewood as part of a bailout bag/BOB. So carrying around a chainsaw or an ax is not going to happen.

From reserch I've done we are looking at the following.

Survival saw:
A notched wire between two rings.
Probably way too light. Suitable for only kits that need to fit in a mint tin. 

Survival saw, chainsaw:
Looks like a chainsaw chain between two handles/straps

Folding camping saw:
A saw blade that folds like a lockback knife

Folding frame saw:
Saw blade in a folding frame
About the biggest I'm thinking for this purpose.
Also likely the most useful for cutting wood in quantity.

Content idea: Preparing for change with CHANGE!

Just scraping by? Feeling disaster looming like Damocles?

Every month the change jar is going to be totaled up and then we are going SHOPPING!

Change saved will be from me and my Aunt (who lives with me). The total will be used as a guideline for the products shopped for. Every month we are going to search for a specific type of item. Item ideas like say a  backpack stove or a camping saw.

I suspect mostly we will be looking at items around $10-20. Links will be provided (Amazon affiliate if available).

What says the mob?
