Zolex Hand Cleaner #Giveaway

Many professions rake havoc on the hands such as Mechanics, Blacksmith, Machinist, Farmers, Gardner, Landscapers and Loggers just to name a few. These hands take a beaten. Getting all that grease or grim off using harsh chemicals is the worst thing you can do. The chemicals dry the skin out causing rough dry cracked hands not to mention some of those chemicals sting if you have cuts or abrasions. With two mechanics in the family having some type of hand cleaner is a must have. That's why I was super excited for the opportunity to have them try Zolex. A non toxic hand cleaner. Yes imagine that a chemical free hand cleaner that works!

Zolex removes grease, grim and slim. Virtually just about anything with no greasy residue or harsh chemicals. I like the part of no chemicals. It's a petroleum free hand cleaner that is non toxic yet powerful enough for the dirtiest of hands.

Some of the great features are:

*Easy to use.

*Eliminates Odors.

*Economical to Use.
*Last 4 to 5 times longer than other hand cleaners.

*Non Toxic

*No greasy residue.

*No harsh chemicals. 

Zolex comes in varies size tubs and you can even purchase a despenser for the larger tubs. This is perfect for a garage restroom or any garage that has a sink hook up. Zolex is made in America and can be purchased online.

Zolex is easy to use. Always wet hands “FIRST”.  You need a marble size portion of Zolex, scub hands as usual and rinse. If you rinse to soon and hands are still dirty just repeat. That's it you'll have clean hands again. 


I have one free 3lb tub of Zolex to give to one lucky reader courtesy of Zolex. To enter fill out the rafflecopter below. The more task you complete on the rafflecopter form the more entries you earn. All entries except the first one are optional.

Don't Get Lost, Get A Compass!

My family likes to go geocaching, hunting, fishing, 4 wheeling, snowmobiling, hiking and more. These are all fun things to do but should be planned appropriately. Which includes carrying safety items in case of an emergency or mishaps. When doing any of these activities in unfamiliar territory it is important to carry a good survival compass. It's easy to get turned around in the thickest of forest here in the deep woods of Maine. No one wants to get lost when hiking but many have when wandering off the trail. Unfortunately it can end in tragedy. Be prepared! That is why this
Dead End Survival Co. SharpSurvival Compass is so important to have with us. I like that it is in a closed case to protect it because I wanted this compass to add to one of our several emergency kits and sometimes the gear bangs around. This way I know when it gets tousled it isn't so apt to get broken.

One night years ago while snowmobiling back home after a long day of events at a local fund raiser an unexpected snow storm started while riding on the way back home. It was a long sled ride and the trail disappeared under the snow. I was nervous because when you hit open fields and there is no trail in the pitch dark it's easy to get lost and the wind made it extremely cold. We had a trail map, compass, thermal blanket and first aid kit with us even though we knew where we were going that day because the weather can change in a minute here. The compass we had didn't have the glow in the dark feature like this Survival Compass so when we hit an open field and needed to know which direction to go we had to stop and get off the sled to use the snowmobile headlight so we could see the compass. This compass makes it quick and easy to check our direction due to the glow in the dark feature. Keep in mind this is solar powered so it needs to be left open to restore the glow in the dark feature from time to time. I have a grow light for starting my seedlings for my vegetable garden and I just pop it open and leave it sitting under that for a bit and it keeps it glowing nice and bright. You could always leave it open on a window sill until you need it. Just remember to make sure it has been open and is ready to use if planning some night time trips.

This also comes in handy for night geocaching which is so much fun but sometimes you need a compass to find the cash. That's when the glow in the dark feature comes in handy on this Survival Compass too. It makes it easier to read. Of course we wear headlamps but the glare makes it hard to read so the glow in the dark feature eliminates that problem. It's also an added safety measure in case the batteries ever did go dead we could at least read the compass and work our way out of the woods slowly.

With this compass you'll know where north is day or night. They have North very clearly marked so you can tell easily which way is north. It features 360 degree rotating bezel which makes it easy to navigate or as we say find your bearings. I like the style of this compass very much. It has a ring at the top so I can attach it to a day pack, cable on the sled or 4 wheeler and more. It's light weight so when hiking you won't have added weight and as any hiker knows every ounce counts. To give you an idea of the size I would compare it to an average pocket watch. It measures about 2" inches wide and a 0.5" half inch thick. It has etching of the company's logo on the outside. It comes as pictured on Amazon and I'm super happy with this product. 

I received this product at a discount. I was in no way coerced to do this review. All content provided on this blog is for informational purposes only.

$.99 Cent Sterling Silver Band Ring @ #Amazon What A Deal~!

I was so skeptical when I first purchased this ring due to the price but not any more. It is what it says it is, 2MM .925 Sterling Silver Band Ring. It is polished to a nice shine. I have worn this for a week now and it looks just like the first day I put it on with no dullness or tarnish. The band is stamp with the .925 symbol and it has a nice curved bevel to the outside of the ring.

I have been looking for a thin thumb ring and this was the perfect size. I am very happy with this purchase. I just wish I had ordered two instead of one. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a Sterling Silver thin ring band. I have included a few pictures so you can actually see the thickness of this band while wearing it.

You can pick this up for $0.99 cents and $5.99 shipping on Amazon (sorry no prime) for a total of just $6.99 Just click on any hyperlink in this post and it will take you to the product on Amazon.

If you decided to buy one let me know in a comment. I love hearing form you.

Adult Storybook Coloring Book Deal On #Amazon

I bought this Coloring Book because I love wildlife and animals and this seemed to be exactly what I would enjoy coloring. I was surprised to find out it also told about each animal beneath the picture. For me this made it interesting too. This book is different from other coloring books I have purchased in the past. This has very shaded pictures not like traditional coloring books with thick heavy line and open spaces. It also has a story line beneath each coloring page. I found this to be challenging and fun but if your looking for big bold area coloring pages this isn't for you.

This has a picture on every page. The back page is not blank so if your using markers this will be a problem with bleeding onto the other page so for marker users I do not recommend at all. This was the reason I gave it four stars because where it is heavily shaded markers would of worked wonderful on these pictures. I wish they had left the back of each page blank and made the pages thicker for marker use.

This to me is a coloring storybook not just a coloring book. I have taken a few pictures so you can see some of the pages inside before I colored them.

I found this fun book on Amazon for only $2.86. What a deal right! Just click on any hyperlink and it will take you to the listing. 
Leave me a comment and let me know if you enjoy coloring and do you spend time coloring with friends and family or quietly by yourself?

Looking For A Fun Gift? This Is Awesome~!


I have had so much fun with this CX-10W RC Mini Quadcopter by oneCase. It's so simple to set up but to operate it is another thing. I don't know if it's because I'm all thumbs on the touch screen controls or what but I am horrible at steering it. I'll have to get a lot better before flying this in a small area or indoors. Sorry about the crash landing video but I can't seem to get by those trees without clipping a leaf or two. This thing goes real high and I can barely see it at times. I can't express how cool this thing is. Makes for a great adult toy! 

This is loaded with fun features. Such as video or still pictures. It comes with WiFi 0.3MP HD camera which can achieve real-time FPV by connecting a your cell phone. What I like is the video the CX-10W RC Mini Quadcopter takes while flying it automatically syncs and ends up on my phone without me having to do anything. No transferring with a memory card. I can view the video or pictures it take on my phone immediately. That is awesome.

First you have to charge the Quadcopter. It comes with a USB cable and the end of the USB cable will glow orange/red when charging. Once it is fully charged the light will go out. Once the Quadcopter is charged it is ready to pair to your phone. To do that you turn on the Quadcopter then go to settings and turn on and open your bluetooth option and “search for devices”. Once it is paired you will have to down load the CX-10W app on your phone. To connect with the Quadcopter you should not be near any other internet service such as your home internet because it may interfere connecting to the Quadcopter. You want the signal on the Quadcopter to be a stronger signal. Go to your internet options and connect with the CX-10W. Now you are set up to enjoy your Quadcopter by oneCase over and over. This is small enough to sit in the pom of your hand. How cool is that. This would make a great gift for that hard to buy for person in your life or maybe a nice stocking stuffer too!

Once you open the app you will see a screen that shows a picture of a Quadcopter and the word play. Just select play and another screen will open and show you all the controls. It has on phone controls for Right/Left, Forwards/Backwards, Up/Down. It has many feature buttons along the top such as the picture, video, photo & video playback, speed, Gravity sensor mode, 3D vision, calibrate the aircraft, Show/Hide control interface, reverse screen and VR mode.

It recommends in the manual to calibrate the Quadcopter. This will help it fly properly.
I had the speed set on 30% and I thought that was fast but according to the manual that is the low setting for speed. It actually has three speed modes low, medium and high.

I liked that although they included a paper manual it's also on the app what all the controls mean and what they are used for. One the start page is a red ? Mark. If you click on that it shows a picture of all the controls and what they are used for. So it has an on board diaphragm short menu.

This is also capable of flying at night but I haven't mastered flying during the day yet. I think I might invest in a remote control transmitter with joy sticks. This would be easier to control and fly with that I think.

This has a very short charging time of 30 minutes but it also has a short flying time of only 4 minutes. I actually used it today for 6 minutes before the battery went dead. I would of liked to have seen a longer charge time and a longer fly time. I find I no more get having fun and it is dead so I have to stop and charge it. If you plan on using this away from home with no USB charging station I recommend that you take a portable power bank with you to recharge this.

I also wish they had added a beacon feature so it would sound so when it drops unexpectedly it would be easy to find. We lost it in a field and it took more than 30 minutes to find it and a beacon or a feature to make it sound would have been so helpful. The battery life span and the beacon are the only two improvements that I can think of to make the experience to fly the oneCase Quadcopter.

I like that they added an extra set of propellers because as bad as I am at flying it I'm sure I'll need them soon to replace the ones that came on it.

WiFi transmission distance is about 65 feet or 20 meters. It seems a lot further than that though. The size is 1.3 x 1.3 x .87 inches or 32 x 32 x 22mm. It weights 1.4 ounces.

The manual has lots of pictures and explains how to use this and care for the Quadcopter so I recommend reading it thoroughly.

Need A Great Pair of Headphones?

Music is a big part of my life with 2 musicians in the family. One family member plays guitar and sings and another plays drums and guitar. We have a music studio where they have band practice on a regular basis. That means we need a good quality set of headphones to use with the mixing board and while laying tracks. That's why I was super excited to try out the Sound Intone CX-05 Headphones.

The headband and earpad is made with memory foam which is covered with PU Leather on the inside plus a diamond stitched fabric on the outside. This not only looks awesome it feels awesome. Especially the ear pads. Usually after an hour of wearing a set of headphones they become uncomfortable but not this set. I spent four hours laying tracks yesterday and they were still comfortable. The earpads are also labeled with a big “R” and “L” on the inside of each earpad to distinguish Right or Left.

The headband has a stainless steel retractable adjustable slide so no matter who wears them they fit perfectly. This is great because we use them while mixing, laying tracks and for vocals so depending on what we are using them for depends on who's wearing them. That means they have to be adjusted to fit each individual person.

I like that these headphones are constructed with metal instead of cheap plastic because the plastic breaks easily and never last very long. Many companies manufacture great sounding headphones but then they skimp on the materials used in the making of them like using plastic headbands instead of a sturdy metal or they use cheap padding instead of memory foam. They followed through with this set which is awesome.

Even the detachable cables that came with this set are nice. They are wrapped fabric cables. That means the cables will also last longer and also help keep them from tangling. That is important because these will be used a lot and no one wants to waste time untangling cords. The plugs on these two cables are glod plated 3.5mm for static free without distortion connection. I like that they added an extra auxiliary cable too. One has a in-line remote with a built in microphone. That means I can use these to also answer phone calls if I want to. The microphone is a 360* degree highly sensitive omni directional microphone. Although I know these Sound Intone CX-05 won't be used for that I did make a call with them and the conversation was clear and the person I was speaking to said there was no static or echo on their end. Then I asked them to call me back to see if they worked the same way with an incoming call. I had the auxiliary cable plugged into my cell phone listening to music and when the call came in the music stopped automatically. I click the button on the in-line remote on the cord and it answers the phone. If they hang up first the phone disconnects and the music plays again automatically. If you want to hang up just click the in-line remote button again and it will disconnect the call. If your listening to music and make a call out the same thing happens, the music stops when the call is connected and reconnected when the call disconnects. The only thing I didn't like about these cables is the length. They measure 4 feet 9 inches or 1.5m. I would of liked to have seen 10 ft cords which would allow more movement when the band is using them. Most headphones come with a short cord. I would like to see a company include one longer cord. This I'm sure would come in handy in more ways than one. That would be a nice option but that's just my opinion.

One of the features that come in handy is the ability of this set of headphones to fold for easy transportation. When traveling to a gig I can tuck these in a guitar case because the earpads fold into the headband. This not only makes them compact for easy transport but it also protects the earpads from damage.

Although the Sound Intone CX-05 Headphones has many great features the one that impressed me the most was the sound of this set. I am super impressed. I wanted you to be able to hear what I hear when wearing them. The closest I could come is to place a recorder inside a box between the earpads and record a relaxation sound track. Then upload the track to amazon but that means you are listening to the track in an box and the quality of the recorder plays a factor in clarity. Even so I think it came out pretty clear however it still doesn't do the sound quality of this headphone set justice. It's so crystal clear and sharp.

I will never need a Masseuse again!

I have to say the first time I wore the Naipo Shiatsu Kneading Neck Massager I was in love with this thing. It's the first massager that I have bought that actually is comfortable and works independently on it's own and WORKS! This thing is the bomb! It really massages those sore neck and shoulder muscles. I have wasted so much money on massagers over the years and they just caused more pain trying to hold the in weird or uncomfortable positions or didn't feel good at all. As you may know a Masseuse is expensive for even just one hour of pain relieving massage but did know the Naipo Neck Massager is about the same price as once session with a Masseuse or less!?! That's why I had to share this with you.

It is super easy to run with just three buttons which are Heat, ON/OFF button and Direction button. The 3D rotation kneading massage rollers go forward and backwards switching every few minutes. Each motion massaging a different set of muscles. You can select the direction by pressing the bottom button labeled DR for direction.

This also comes with a Heat option feature. The top button with the label HT and icon waves is the heat button option. Just press once to turn it on. I love the heat option. Have you ever slept wrong and woke up with a bad stiff neck? This works great for that. I have used this for that exact reason and although it hurt it felt so good at the same time.

This is the first massager that I have found that works great that I could afford and use every day.

ikris 4 Way #Garden Hose Splitter

Living on a farm you need lots of hoses for watering livestock and gardens. We run two hoses now but want to expand to four so we don't have to lug water to the upper barn and back fruit trees. This ikris 4-way Garden Hose Slitter is perfect. We have one hose running to our garden out back of the house and one to the raise beds and chicken coup out front. I now have a 3rd 100 foot hose that I just bought to run to the barn which I will hook up this weekend. I need to pick up one more for the garage. This will save us lots of work lugging water in 5 gallon buckets!

This is nicely made. Very heavy duty. The whole splitter is lead free metal with a rubber coating on most of it. The female end that we screwed our main hose into is metal not plastic and it has a thick rubber gasket to keep it from leaking. They covered it in a heavy rubber to protect your hands. It's much nicer to use that way. All four male ends are also metal. Each one can be turn on and off individually. They each have their own on/off valve. We have two shut off and two turned on in one of the pictures. All the threads worked correctly. This is made to last.

It is super easy to install. It can screw directly onto your outdoor spout by turning the plastic female handle. It's that simple. You can also relocate it to another place by using a garden leader hose extension. They sell them in all different sizes. We only needed a short 4' leader hose and found a cheap 4' washer hose that worked perfect for us. I wanted mine moved to a new location so we attached ours to the building using a hasp but normally you should use the 5 screw holes that are pre-drilled on the splitter to screw it right to the building. Three holes are between each male nozzle and one on each side of the female nozzle. I would recommend using spacers on the back side of the screws to sit the ikris 4 way Garden Hose Splitter out from the building. You would of course need longer screws to allow for the spacer. Doing this would allow you to screw and unscrew the hoses much easier. We just happened to use a hasp/bracket that I had on hand because I didn't have any spacers. It saved me a drive to the hardware store. If you want to just attach this to your existing outdoor nozzle no tools are required just twist it on and your done.

This works with no leaking at all. Water is a very important resource that should never be wasted so it's important to me this was made well and didn't leak at all.They have this at a great price on Amazon check it out today.

Glad I Owned One Today!

At 20000 mAh this HyperGear Dual USB Power Bank has enough power to charge my Motorola cell phone 10 times. It couldn't have come at a better time. Today while writing review I had to shut down after the first sentence due to severe thunder storms and tornadoes. With the power out I had to rely on this power bank to keep my phone charged so I could check on family members and elderly neighbors. It worked super great. I was so glad I had it when this happened. This is the perfect power bank to have in an emergency because it can charge your cell phone up to 10 times depending on the type of cell phone you have. If you have a good battery in your cell phone that last two days that means it could keep your cell phone charged twenty days! My battery has deteriorated over time and goes dead much faster but if I didn't spend a lot of time on it playing games or just chatting mine would last twelve hours. That means I could keep mine charged for ten days. That is amazing.

Sounds Beautiful & ECO Friendly

I originally planned to put this Brooklyn Basix Freedom Chime next to the Bleeding Heart plant by my PaPa's headstone in the cemetery because he loved the sound of a good quality tuned wind chime. However the hanger I had purchased to use wasn't tall enough. This chime is 15.7 inches long and it even looks longer when hanging. The bottom just barely missed the ground. I did a short video so you could hear how nice this chime sounds while I was at the cemetery before I relocated it to my garden until I can find a longer hanger. Now I get to enjoy the wonderful sound this Chime produces for a short time.Check out my video to hear what they sound like and read my complete review on Amazon by clicking on any highlighted hyperlink in this post.If you like my review of this product give my review a "Yes" vote please.

This is a great Crafts 4 All Permanent Fabric Markers starter pack from E. I Trading LTD for anyone who wants to do some fabric projects. I had a plain white Calvin Klein fabric tote that I wanted to jazz up a bit with some color so I traced out a flower design in the black marker to color in with bright colors. This set was perfect for this craft project.

I had several colors to choose from in this set of twelve permanent fabric markers. The colors are Black, Grey, Brown, Brilliant Blue, Sky Blue, Vivid Red,Grass Green, Forest Green, Orange, Lemon Yellow, Purple, and Pale Purple.
One of the features I liked about these Crafts 4 All Fabric Markers is the double tip. It has a wide tip for large areas you want to cover and a fine tip for writing and fine lines. You don't need to press down when using these markers and they cover easily and work fantastic. The colors showed bright and vivid.

If you follow the directions on the box you shouldn't have any bleeding problems and get the results your looking for in your project. Keep in mind the harder you press the more marker ink you will receive and depending on what type of fabric your using will depend on how much or how fast it will absorb into the material. With this project I was using a really thin cloth and the fabric soaked up a lot of the marker ink quickly. I also noticed it draws the ink easily which could cause bleeding. Knowing this I kept it just a little bit from the fine black outline that I had drawn and it worked great to keep the black outline from bleeding. I also stuck a piece of cardboard in between so the color would not go through to the other side.These permanent markers are Non Toxic making them safe for me to use with my Grandchildren. That's a must because children love markers.This keeps them safe and they can spend quality time crafting too. Keep in mind these being permanent you might want to save these for the older children to use. The fabric markers are also machine washable and fade resistant. I would use cold water because the company recommended not to use water over 30C/86F to prevent bleeding. It's better to be safe than sorry.One thing I would of done different if I was to do this project again with this type of material would be to apply the black fine line design then allow it to dry overnight before coloring it. Although I didn't experience a lot of bleeding I would not have had to be so careful about how close I came to the black design to avoid the black from bleeding. This is just my personal preference for this particular material. I can't wait to try them on jean material that I have for another project.I'm no artist but the colors did add a bit of fun to this drab tote. I added photos to give you an idea of what the colors looked like and to show how vivid the colors are on fabric. It applies so easy and quickly with no bearing down hard or going over several times.I really liked how well the Crafts 4 All Permanent Markers from E.I. Trading LTD worked. My only regret is not owning the 36 package because now I want even more color choices for a bigger project.

It's gets pretty steamy but not this mirror!

The Fogless Shower Mirror from Appealic comes in so handy for doing my home made facial sugar scrub I wish I had one of these years ago. I apply the sugar scrub using the mirror in the shower then rinse with warm water right in the shower. What a great way to start my shower and no more mess or wrapping a towel around my neck to protect my shirt while leaning over the sink. I like my shower fairly hot and so far it has not fogged up once. The bathroom gets pretty steamy and my big mirror over the sink gets foggy but this Appealic Fogless Shower Mirror doesn't.

The mirror has a suction cup that holds it secure to the wall of the shower. To lock it you turn it clockwise and to unlock it you turn it counter clockwise. It's that simple to attach it to your shower wall. It has a very strong hold. I like that it can be removed for easy cleaning of the shower wall or to reposition the mirror itself in a different location. I don't like to clean around objects and found it much easier to remove the mirror while cleaning the shower and then put it back when I'm finished. I like that it's not a permanent fixture for this reason. Plus if you remodel or move you still have it available to use in your new shower.
It has a 360 degree knuckle that the mirror is attached to so you can move it to any position for better visibility. This comes in handy especially when shaving sideburns and under the neck line. You can move the mirror so you can see much better. He really liked this feature.
Another feature this fogless mirror has is a place to hang your razor. I hate them lying on the side of the shower. With this it hangs neatly and safely on the mirror where it should be.
It's so convenient and what faster easier way to shave than in the shower. You don't have to worry about making a mess or cleaning the sink. When it comes to getting ready the easier and the faster the better. Am I right!?!


Enclosed was the Fogless Mirror, a pair of Tweezers, a small pair of Scissors in a black drawstring pouch and a small manual of how to install the Appealic Fogless Mirror in your shower. I am super happy with the performance of the mirror and the functionality of it as well.

It meets all my charging needs., May 31, 2016

Universal 3 Port USB Car Charger by TripleBooster [7.2A/36W] for cell phones, Tablets, PSP, iPhone, iPod, Camera, Etc - Comes with 3 USB-to-USB Cables, Cloth Bag, Manual, & Gift Box - All in one set! (Wireless Phone Accessory)


I have so many items that need charging in my vehicle that it was time for a bigger and better car charger. With cell phones, tablets, a GPS unit plus a FM Transmitter Universal Car Radio with Phone Holder that I use to play Pandora, iHeart Radio, and iTunes it was time for a 3 Port USB Car Charger. This Universal 3 Port USB Car Charger by Krispin Electronics is perfect for all my needs. Where it is universal I can use it for a multitude of products that I currently own such as my iPad, Camera, Car GPS, Handheld GPS, Cell Phones, FM Transmitter/Phone and more. I have at least two or three items charging all the time.
I took a video just to show you the components that I had charging today. Sorry about the sound quality I had the air conditioner running and the microphone was picking up the noise from my AC. I didn't realize it until i listened to it later.
The first item I was charging is a Garmin GPS that I use all the time. The second was my Motorola G Cell Phone. The third was an FM Transmitter/Phone Holder. I wanted to listen to iHeart Radio through my car stereo speakers while on a road trip which runs my phone down so I like to keep it charging while listening to music and use my GPS while charging that at the same time. No one wants their GPS battery to go dead while using it to navigate. This worked great for all three components. I plugged all three units in and off I went. It was so nice to be able to charge them all and not have to worry about a dead battery on any of the three units.
I like that they included 3 USB cables all with different ends. One Micro for androids such as my Motorola G Cell Phone, one 30 pin and one 8 pin both used for Apple products such as the iPhones and iPads.
This unit also came with a draw string bag to carry it all in. I put all the cables in the draw string bag and leave it in my console. That way while on the go no matter what needs charging chances are I have a USB Cable to fit it. That's real handy. It's also a nice way to store and keep them neat. 

This Universal 3 Port USB Car Charger by Krispin Electronics comes with a 100% Warranty for 18 months and a lifetime support where you can contact them with any issues you may have. I have used this product every day since the day I received it and I am thrilled at how well it charges all my devices.

Great for camping & yard work

SHVIRO Folding Hand Saw - Ideal Tree Pruning Tool for Your garden - High Carbon Steel Blade with Heat Treated Rugged Teeth - Durable and Easy to Use - 7 inch


I have so many trees that need to be pruned and the branches cut back that this SHVIRO Folding Hand Saw will come in handy all spring summer and fall. I live in the country and winter is harsh on the trees breaking tons of branches. I like to do a major clean up in the spring with lots of raking and even more pruning. I don't like using Loppers because they don't flush with the tree and most of the time it tears or rips the branch leaving stubs sticking out of the trees. I like the that the SHVIRO saws the branches flush to the tree leaving no nubs sticking out.

Most of the branches that this saw has been used for so far is approximately 1 inch in diameter. About the size of a quarter in comparison. It saws them quickly and easily. I wanted this SHVIRO Folding Hand Saw to cut branches low to the ground or to small to use a chainsaw to prune them without damaging the tree and this hand saw worked great for this.
It has a strong 7 inch steel blade with teeth that cut in both direction. This makes sawing much faster. The blade folds into its plastic handle which makes it light weight for carrying and sawing. It's also easy to stick in your back pocket or a backpack. It has a black button that releases the blade to open it. The plastic handle has 5 rubber circles down both sides to make holding onto the handle easier with less slippage.

The SHVIRO Folding Hand Saw will also make a great addition to my camping gear. I plan on storing mine in my camping gear that way I'll always have it when I'm off camping somewhere. It will come in real handy when making a small fire pit to cook hot dogs or to roast marshmallows to make smores.
It also comes with a 100% risk free guarantee with no questions asked.

It has worked wonderful for pruning small limbs and trees on my property and I'm happy with it's performance. You can purchase this item on If you liked this review and found it helpful you can view it on Amazon and hit the "Yes I found the review helpful" here
