Looks good man! I have the 'pocket boy' model with the folding blade. Do you like the medium teeth?
So far I've cut a good bit of (green) yellow pine, (green) poplar, dry yellow pine and white pine, dry poplar, dry doug fir, and dry walnut. For a 7 tpi blade, t's been easy to start and has done a fantastic job on each.
I found the Silky Gomtaro 240 replacement blade which is basically the saw minus the handle and sheath for $22 free shipping. Thinking about copying your idea. What did you use for a blade guard?
Awesome!! I have this big guy on the left for snowmobiling when guys hit trees. It has the Extra large teeth and basically eats the wood. Wasn't sure if I could get away with the medium to work for wood AND bone possibly? Time will tell
Didn't think about the blade with metal handle option, im sure those are a lot lighter.
