      Q:can you sharpen this saw and if so how?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for contacting Fiskars. Before sharpening, you will need to make sure the saw is clean. Use a stiff brush, like steel, and soapy water or a foaming bathroom cleanser. Get between each tooth to dislodge any dirt and debris there. If there is sap on the saw, you can use kerosene to clean it off. Wet a cloth with some of the kerosene and dab it onto the spots of sap until they’re gone. The teeth of a pruning saw are very unusual, so they actually require a special type of file to sharpen. You will want a Cant file, or any other type with a triangular cross section. Clamp your saw to a firm surface or slip it into a vise and make sure it has a good hold. Then, take your file and, starting from the rear of the saw and working toward the tip, sharpen the edges of the teeth pointing away from you one-by-one; this will be every other tooth in the sequence. You should hold your file at about a 30 degree angle to the saw while sharpening. Keep adjusting the blade in the clamps or vise so that you don’t work on any area that isn’t tightly secured, as this could cause teeth to chip. Also make sure that you give each tooth the same number of strokes as you go: eight strokes will work for a regular touch-up, 15 will made a mildly dull saw sharp, and 20 should suffice for a very dull saw. When you reach the tip, unclamp your blade, turn it around, clamp it again, and repeat this process on the sharp edges of the rest of the teeth. Clean your pruning saw once more after you finish, and rub it with a light coat of oil before you store it.

                Q:Can this be used for hunting, say cutting through animal bone?

                Answer This Question

                A:  Probably not

                by|Nov 2, 2022

                  A:  Thank you for contacting Fiskars. This pruning saw has a maximum cutting thickness of 8 inches, so it is capable of cutting animal bone. Couple of things to note: this is not a stainless-steel blade, it is a carbon-steel blade. Make sure if you wash it afterward, you dry it immediately. Also, power-tooth teeth (often referred to as "triple-grind"), might be a bit TOO sharp and might hang up on bone more than is typical. Normal bone saws are more like hacksaws: lots of little, not-quite-sharp, teeth, so you might get a bit more splintering than a normal bone saw.
