Thread: Chest Saw

  1. #1

    Chest Saw

    Posting here as its more to do with prep in the field rather than larder or kitchen.

    I saw one of these recently. Any thoughts on whether they would be any good as a chest saw when grallaching?

    The point with 'specialist' chestbone saws is that they cut on the outstroke, meaning that debris from the cut is brought out of the cavity, not pushed in - so more hygienic etc. The one you specify cuts on both strokes so would push debris into the carcass.
    Bushwear's own brand saw is perfectly adequate and good value - http://www.bushwear.co.uk/nostyles.p...13&ClassID=206

    But the Bushwear one cuts both ways: "The teeth cut on both the push and pull stroke and make short work of the rib cage and pelvic bone."

    I have always been intrigued as to why people cut pelvis and chest in the field.
    Really can't see how this makes sense regardless of any nanny "best practice"

    my field gralloch holes are as small as possible

    ie. Vmax, then just let the organs pour out by tilting the beast downhill
