like it says what kind of saws(or wood cutting tool) do you use for your kits,etc...?

I use a hacksaw blade.my opinion- i find these very reliable, ive had one for 10 years and it still cuts excellent, its thin,cuts fast, although with heavy use its possible it could break,but ive never had that happened so i put one in my bob.i cover one side with duck tape to prevent hand injury or i can take it off and create other variations.

i have a wire survival saw...forgot the maker. havent tried it but i might ths winter.

a hatchet-its next to my bob if i need it but its totaly optional.

i think my SAK has a saw.

but my choice is hacksaw blade.why? well i just like them and they work well for me. i want to get a blade and cut it in half so it can fit in my medium kit and then i would cut the other half into smaller halfs for use in my 2 psk's.

I use a sawsall 6in. wood and a sawsall 6in. bi metal blades. In my larger kit I use the 11in. of the same blades. With a larger kit you can carry a handle, but for the med. size kit I wrap the in with duct tape. or make a handle from wood and lock it in with snare wire.

On my person, I will have a multi-tool or SAK. In my pack is a Gerber folding saw.

"... want to get a blade and cut it in half..."

You can easliy break a hacksaw blade. Just put in in a vise (or grip it tightly with pliers) where you want it to break and either whack it close with a hammer, or snap it (carefully) by hand...

I normally use my Bahco Laplander folding saw. Awesome saw.

Otherwise, i'll just use the saw on my Victorinox One-handed Trekker (for smaller branches).

On person - Leatherman Supertool (has an excellent saw blade)
PSK - BCB wire saw with para cord handles
BOB - folding sven saw (You had better have gloves in your kit)

In the PSK and BOB I also have a couple of very aggresive jig saw blades, can't remember the make at this point.
