The Brand

 

The Wicked Tough Hand Saw was birthed in the heart of trophy whitetail country. Designed by whitetail aficionado Todd Pringnitzan, the Wicked Tough saw is no ordinary invention. Todd states the innovation came from his own personal experience with inferior saws.

 

“I put a ton of time into hanging and trimming stands each season, and I got sick of breaking multiple plastic hand saws every year. I wanted to build something better! As an engineer I knew the importance of quality products from my die-hard bowhunting background and in filming hunts for our DVD series (White Knuckle Productions) and online show (Whitetails, Inc.). The Wicked Tough Hand Saw is something I’ve been dreaming of for years. I’m just excited to have a saw to use in the field this season that will rip through anything I put in-front of it, and won’t break.”

 

The Build

 

wicked tree gear hunting sawAlong with its uncompromising qualities, the Wicked Tough saw was conceived to be user-friendly. With its ergonomically-molded aluminum handle and easy-grip black rubber inlay, the patented design allows for proper fit and function.

 

In hand, the Wicked Tough saw balances nicely. While cutting, the Wicked Tough saw design allows for proper stress on the blade without discomfort to the hand or wrist.

 

Measuring at just over 8 inches when folded and weighing in at just .5 lbs, this saw is a pleasure to use and is a welcomed visitor to any hunting pack. The Wicked Tough Hand Saw has undoubtedly met the demand for practicality and performance within the world of passionate outdoorsmen.

 

The Blade

 

Fastened with a proprietary locking nut and bolt, the Wicked Tough Hand Saw blade integrates nicely into the rugged aluminum shroud. There are no exposed edges to tear clothing or your favorite hunting pack. A hardened steel ‘fail-safe’ design eliminates the blade lock failure that is so prevalent among underling saws, keeping the Wicked Tough saw blade securely locked during use. Strong enough to withstand the rowdy conduct of stubborn limbs, the Fail Safe Blade Lock Design is functional and dependable.

 

Made of high-carbon steel, the Wicked Sharp blade cuts quickly and smoothly. The cutting teeth are designed to prevent the blade from binding under stress, making cutting pesky limbs an easy chore. A side-by-side cutting comparison between a leading brand saw and the Wicked Tough saw was no real match at all. The Wicked Tough saw blade cut twice as fast as the leading brand. This blade has no fluff and is definitely wicked tough.

 

The Brawn

 

Wicked Gear SawWicked Tree Gear’s claim of “won’t break” is rather intriguing and inviting. Putting the saw through its paces was a challenge to be enjoyed. Limbs up to 6 inches in diameter were no match for the Wicked Tough saw. Small limbs were hacked machete style with no damage to the saw. Cutting into the dirt while making a mock scrape left the blade unscathed. With Herculean proportions, the Wicked Tough saw is even tough enough to be driven over. Robust claims are a dime a dozen, but obviously Wicked Tree Gear is not about pretending, they are about delivering.
