Manual One-Man Crosscut Saw
When looking at my long term resiliency and my ability to gather firewood and provide fuel for heating / cooking, I look for simple, quality tools like this cross-cut lumber saw. It will last for multiple generations if properly taken care of and will provide me with an effective tool to cut trees into manageable chunks.
As the old adage goes, “Wood heats you three times — when you cut it, split and burn it.”
I am also considering a two person crosscut saw to help with larger trees and get a little help to make quick work of firework gathering projects.
