I see it now, thank you!

yeah sorry didn't see your post before. Just emailed him and he responded pretty quick, not sure what the time difference is over there, but should have tracking #'s tomorrow.

my buddy and I had an interesting time trying to cap a deer a couple weeks ago and hoping this is a much better option, and so light I'll probably carry it in the field.

have a 170MM handle ordered. Which blade to you recommend for skull capping, while still being able to cut wood.

I use two blades- for wood- Large teeth, for bone- Fine teeth

Possibly something in between for both????

went ahead and bought the fine teeth. I just ordered the whole damn saw, since it was $5 more than just the blade......

For anyone wondering, I ordered the Silky Pocketboy with a fine blade. It cut through a Whitetails skull with no issues. Still considering if I really need to save the weight and buy a new handle from Jan.
Where are the rest of you buying your replacement blades from? I'd like to get a large tooth to swap out for cutting wood. For the prices I've seen on Amazon, ebay, and Silky, I might as well buy a whole new saw with the large teeth.

there used to be a business from Japan that sold blades relatively reasonably priced on eBay; I don't think they are there anymore

it might be possible to peruse eBay Japan and see if there are any willing sellers that would ship?

it stands to reason they sell cheaper there, as that's where they are made

Great idea, but a quick search for eBay Japan resulted in me learning that eBay is banned in Japan, and has been for some years now. I tried Wish, on a whim, and no luck with that either. Looks like I'll just have to dish out some cash for another (expensive) blade.
