For that matter, exactly why would I want to split wood in a survival situation? Fuzz it up, sure. Split it? How about picking smaller sticks for kindling use?

FWIW, I carry one of those little wire saws. The way I figure it cutting may be critical, splitting? Notsomuch.


Go use the saw, cut 15 pieces of wood or so, make a few traps with the saw. Then tell us what you think.
Our most important survival tool is our brain, and for many, that tool is way underused! SBRaider
