>> Am I missing something, can't your original saw be resharpened?
Good point. I had considered it, but assumed that it wouldn't be worth it. I don't have the tools to sharpen it myself, and I assume that taking to some place to sharpen it would be more expensive than buying a new one. I also figured I would try and find something that was a little better. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it. Generally speaking, the saws are heavier (but better) or lighter, but not quite as good. Or they don't fold or are discontinued.
So, I think I'll look into saw sharpening, and if that doesn't work out, then I'll get the Felco.
