    How do you sharpen the blade on these things?

    • +37 votes

      In 2021 you buy another one.

      • +3 votes

        Yep, or buy a new blade which will cost more than one of these…

        In the old days when they generally had offset teeth people would use a tool to reset the teeth and sharpen them with a file… I believe most modern ones are fairly straight hardened ground teeth which you cant do much with…

        • +3 votes

          Correct. Can't be sharpened. Hardened steel so throw it away.
          *If you have your parents or your grandparents saws….different story as they can be sharpened.(and access to a saw doctor.Yes there are still a few around)

      I bought a tool online for a bow saw. It realigns the teeth. It's called a tooth kerfer. Or tooth setter.

    Thanks OP. This is a real bargain. For those that have Powerpass you can get it for $4.75.

    •  

      Can you use Powerpass and Bunnings gc online for C&C (in case runs out)?

      •  

        I don't see any option for C&C on my PowerPass account so I assume it is only available at that price in store. Personally I've ordered 4 for C&C @ $5 as it's a bargain either way.

    •  

      I couldn't see how to use Power Pass?

      •  

        It's Bunnings trade account. You'll need an ABN and can sign up here https://www.bunnings.com.au/trade/powerpass

        • +1 vote

          it seems having an ABN is not enough. You also need to be either a tradie, or "those who require materials for building services, or who are undertaking their own build or project as an owner builder"

          Can someone confirm please?

            @aec: Confirm

          • +2 votes

            @aec: Not really. I sell online and require polishing solution for the items I sell so I selected "Cleaner" as my trade and I had no problems setting up an account. I don't think they check these details as my business name has nothing at all to do with cleaning.

          • +4 votes

            @aec: I have an ABN and am not a tradie and had no problem getting Powepass - no questions asked.

            It's worth getting if you can.

            • +2 votes

              @R4: Same here. But I needed to register a business name as well.
              First attempt I tried, signed up online and they wanted me to show them a recent invoice or quote. I gave up then.
              Second attempt, I registered a business name in addition to the ABN, and then went to the trade desk to sign up. No questions asked.

            •  

              @R4: Thank you guys. I will give it a try. In the next 12-18 months, i will need to do some house renovation work (a DIY type….)

    Thank you OP, got one.

  •  

    If only it was a pruning saw for me… it might be worth getting one purely for the blade hmm. I have all the 73cm bow in the shed. Never tried Fisker… how does it compare to irwin tools?

    •  

      Fiskars is a premium brand, at least equal to Irwin.

      •  

        See my comment below. This is just rebranded Chinese rubbish made for Fiskars.

    Got one last week. Very sharp and made very short work of the pieces I needed to cut. It's a bit on the shorter side though for the full strokes and I can see it getting annoying pretty quick if used frequently. Pity no sales on the bigger versions.

    •  

      The size is probably why it is on clearance but for the price it should pay for itself in no time if someone has no better option.

    I suppose $5 is a great price for anything made by Fiskars - even the badge :p

      It's not made by Fiskars and it's not made in Finland. This is cheap rebranded Chinese junk.

      Source: purchased one this morning.

      •  

        Is the saw actually any good at cutting thick 10-15cm branches?

        •  

          It will do it but it will be hard work and not efficient. You need a chainsaw.

    Does not work for SAW parties.

        Well, it's $7 to replace the blade if it breaks (with a Cyclone branded one, which may be worse than Fiskars), so figured I may as well buy another one for spares.

        Doesn't negate the fact that I don't have anything to cut…

    As lazydesi stated above.

    I just picked mine up and attacked a tree. It cuts well but is definitely not your traditional fiskars quality.

    It has fiskars written on it but when you look closely it says made in China for fiskars.

    It's just a rebranded cheap Chinese bow saw. Don't get your hopes up. For $5 it's still good value but not any better than the $8 Saxon branded saw.

    I have one of these with a spare blade. It's in the shed. Bought a couple of years back to cut a ~100mm branch on a citrus tree.

    It's yours if you want it. The saw, I mean.

    Only thing is, the blade retainer & tensioner (flimsy as all fvck) snapped on the second outward stroke.

    (I finished up spending a bit more for a name brand one.)

    •  

      Which brand/s did you get and which others do you recommend?

      •  

        I would recommend irwin , bahco , fiskar (made in finland).
