That's a good back up tool for when TSHTF and you can't get gas or don't have a backup supply. I'd also check into a buck saw, one or 2 man version. I checked those out a few years ago as a backup. Since I keep a 4-5 year supply of wood on hand, those hand saws are better served getting dead stuff in the woods that is still good to burn. Saws easier.

Took down this tree for a neighbor. It's too close to her house.

I cut down yet another tree for Elliot’s Humus Well project for the PTJ.
This time with a silky katanaboy 500.
If anyone is looking for a new saw, this is an excellent contender. It took me under five minutes to get this one down.
