Resumee

The Folding Saw from GRÜNTEK convinces with an ergonomic cork handle. Furthermore, you can fix the saw blade at three angles of inclination. The blade is firmly locked in all positions. A criticism is that the saw blade is blunt compared to the other products tested. Despite the low sharpness it was possible to cut through hardwood. However, you have to allow for a little more time and also more force.

Pro

  • Ergonomic handle
  • 3 angles of inclination
  • Latching

Cons

  • Appears cheaply processed
  • Blunt saw blade

360° View

The ergonomic cork handle sits comfortably in the hand. Due to the blunt saw blade, it is more suitable for smaller branches.

Saws

The saw blade is not very sharp. In order to cut through the birch tree trunk, with a diameter of 8.0 cm, used in our test, a very high amount of force is required compared to the other products tested.

Safety

The saw blade can be mounted at three different angles of inclination. You can also fold the saw blade completely. In every position, the blade is firmly locked and safe handling is guaranteed.
