Sometimes, thinks just don't go right. My trusty Stihl chainsaw just would not start. Probably the crappy gas with alcohol that I used. But I needed to take out a gum tree that was too close to the house. And I just happened to have the SYKCO 1311 handy.

I was getting overheated chopping, so I'll get the chainsaw serviced and finish the job next week. Got to make the gun show tomorrow to find some more CB Longs for my Henry garden gun. But that 1311 will see more use soon. It's my #1 Yard Knife.


Horned, dangerous, and off my medication.

That's cool! You should use the knife more often! Much more fun. And much cooler too smile

I think I may leave it pristine. It would be my one and only safe queen. I will use the 1311 to buck those limbs. But I am getting the chainsaw to cut up the trunk. It was in the 90s and bit humid today, and this old man just ran out of steam.

Very cool HD, that is how I use my 1311. The thing is a chopping machine, no doubt cool

I will take my sweet time with the chainsaw when I get it running. I just can't take the heat like I used to.

Cool, that a broken chainsaw won't have to stop you, when you have the 1311!
Good fun, bit bet. Although, being tough in the heat.

What a great machete! I keep saying it, but I wish Dan would make these available again.
