    tactical hack saw...

    i keep a hack saw blade in my BOB ( not the whole saw ) just a blade. originally i had wrapped the end with just tape to serve as a handle, and it stored a bit of usable tape at the same time, but i wanted to try wrapping it in paracord. i think it came out ok, but i would like the blade to be a little longer, so i may make another. overall length is 7.5 inches, and the exposed non wrapped section of the blade is 3.5 inches. i would like that to be a little closer to 5 inches. this was my first time wrapping anything in paracord.

    Good Ideal Darkside, you can never tell when you might want to cut a padlock.
    I have a small supported blade holder for a hacksaw blade which keeps about 4" of a hacksaw blade taute and supported in my bug out kit. Takes no more room than what you are doing. Also handy for cutting off handcuffs if you get caught!

    Nifty idea. I have a saw similar to Jake's, that holds sawzall blades as well, in my BOB as well as a gerber gator saw and a gerber machette(with a saw on it) strapped to the outside.

    i like those small saws you guys have, but thats no fun... i wanted a tactical ninja saw but really the saws you guys have rock and could come in handy! the big plus to the saws you guys have is it does keep the blade tight, mine tends to flex a bit, but works good if you pay attention while you are cutting, and you keep the blade from binding.

    i also have the gerber machetti with the saw on it, it kicks azz...im a big gerber fan.

    Re: tactical hack saw...

    i gave it a quick test run. i cut through a tapcon screw with no problem, i cut into a tuna fish can, but that was a bit of a PITA as the saw kept hanging up ( a blade with more teeth per inch is better for thinner material ) . finally i said screw it and picked up a piece of rebar. it took about 2-3 minutes to cut about 1/8 of an inch into the rebar...its 1/2 inch rebar.

    the cord did not move one bit! i think the teeth help to hold the cord in place as they 'bite" into the cord a bit and keep it from sliding. also, i forgot to mention in the OP that when i finished wrapping it i went over the whole thing with a lighter and heated up the cord. i didnt do it enough to melt it, but maybe it "shrunk" the cord a bit? basically i went back a forth with the lighter over the cord.
