The ARS 18cm folding saw has a very comfortable, virtually unbreakable grip that is slightly larger than the handle of the 210-DX and is formed to ensure the user's hand does not slip while sawing. The curved blade is hard chrome plated and taper ground. The curvature of the blade helps to keep it in the cut so no energy is wasted. The blade locking system is a very simple catch which hooks onto the blade and locks in place. Total length when open is 410mm and the saw only weighs 165grams.
