Very ReliableI hope these saws stay made in Sweden like mine, they are a brilliant little pruning saw. What is most impressive is they will rarely if ever bind in a piece of wood no matter how sticky or difficult a branch can be to cut. The blade doesn't look much but it cuts fast and doesn't get stuck, that is all that is needed. It is a tough little tool and I like its simple features and comfortable grip. Obviously it has its limitations due to the length of the blade but I'd say it could cut up to about 6 inch branches max, maybe a bit more if you are careful. You could buy more expensive and faster cutting saws but this saw is a good all rounder and has never let me down yet, I think it will last a very long time if taken care of, clean off the blade after each use and blow the dust away and it will be ready to go the next time you need it. Just be careful with the lock when opening and closing and the tool will last a long time. Might also want to replace the lanyard cord with a bright coloured one so you can see it easily when you put it down on grass etc.
