Pocket Wire Saw

Adventurer Spiral Wire Pocket Saw
Military Issue - Civilian Version

This is the original pocket saw carried by famed test pilot Chuck Yaeger. Badly burned after being forced to bail out during a test flight at 104,000 feet, this saw was used to cut through his pressure suit’s neck ring to remove his helmet. Lightweight and compact, it can be coiled up into a shirt pocket or easily included in survival and camping kits. The Wire Pocket Saw will cut just about anything including metals, plastics, ceramics, adhesives, rubber, wood and bone. Easy to handle, the Spiral Pocket Saw does not readily cut skin.

Traditionally, Survival Wire Saws have utilized wire strands as the cutting surface. This resulted in a ”good” saw that could cut moderately well through wood, thin aluminum, and bone. The main issue with traditional wire saws is that there are inconsistencies with the way the wires are wrapped. The traditional wire saw does not present a consistent cutting surface and the wire has a tendency to “snag”. This can result in a broken wire, either in the strands where knots and smaller wires form a weak spot in the wire, or the connections to the rings or handles from the sudden shock to the wire when the wire snags.

The Adventurer Pocket Spiral Wire Survival Saw utilizes an entirely different blade in that is “spiral” in design. Distributed by Best Glide ASE, this Survival Saw is more versatile and much safer than any flat blade, as the unique spiral design allows cutting in any direction. Made of specially hardened steel, all edges of the spiral blade are cutting edges. This type of survival saw has been used by the U.S. Military for over 30 years.

MORE ABOUT THE ADVENTURER POCKET SPIRAL WIRE SAW


The Adventurer Pocket Spiral Saw easily follows contours and allows tight and intricate cuts (including square and circular cuts) that are impossible to make with other saw blades. Spiral blades are easy to handle and do not readily cut human flesh, thus making them safer than other wire saws. To make the best use of this saw, it is recommended that the blade be held as straight as possible to cut. This allows the Spiral Saw blade the maximum amount of cutting surface and keeps the saw from “binding” in the cut groove.

The rings are made for you to place your thumbs in, as seen to the right. However, if extended use isPocket Wire Saw anticipated, cutting is made easier by constructing a “bow” to string the Adventurer Pocket Spiral Wire Saw in between. We also offer the Adventurer Camping Spiral Wire Saw, a heavier duty version of the Pocket Saw with a heavier (stainless steel) longer blade (.050” diameter instead of .040” and 24” long instead of 20” long). The larger rings are much more comfortable to grip than the “thumb rings” of the Pocket Saw.
