    Picked this saw up recently. Haven't used it much but seems to be pretty high quality for the price and it cuts like a laser. Anyone got one? Any comments on long term use/quality?

    If the blade is S35VN don’t let @Patrick Rollins touch it.

    We plan on batonning it through some seasoned oak this weekend and see how it holds up. It saws through cheese pretty good though.

    I haven’t really used any of their saws, but the name carries much weight in my industry with their hand pruners.

    Some of the best there are for hand pruners.

    I'd never heard of them until I ran across an ad. Decided to try one and it seems to be good quality. Patrick won't let me borrow his axe so I decided I needed to carry a saw.

    Felco makes great landscaping tools. I have one of their fixed saws, several of their hand pruners and one set of loppers. I don’t know if the saws are Swiss made, but their other cutting tools are. Some I’ve been using for 2 decades of hard work. Excellent real use tools.

    This saw says "Swiss designed, made in Korea"

    that make it affordable and without the "I'm better than you" Swiss mentality.

    Where are they sold and for how much? It looks remarkably similar to my Corona saw I picked up at Lowes. This one is also a badass little saw for the $20 or so it costs. And the handle is very comfortable.

    Corona makes some pretty good hand tools at a big discount versus Felco.
