Corona RS 7041 Razor Tooth Folding Saw, 7-Inch Blade

When I unfolded this saw, it reminded me of a pocket knife.

The blade is stored in the handle, and when it’s time to saw, you unfold it, and lock the blade into the fully extended position.

Then you get to sawing. It saws well. It’ll cut through tree branches as thick as your wrist.

Unless you have huge trees, this saw is more than big enough for most tasks. It’s perfect for small fruit trees.

New Balance Men’s Vazee Urge v1 Running Shoe, Yellow/Black, 9.5 2E US

I bought these in a hurry, and within a couple months, they became my favorite shoes. It’s been a couple years, and I’m still wearing them. (I made them last by rotating.)

These soles are worn down, and it seems to make the shoe even more comfortable.

This wasn’t a very expensive shoe when I first bought it, but, now, look around: the price has roughly doubled. Some people must be liking this shoe, a lot.

Update Oct 2021: I am still wearing the shoes, but the firm rubber sole has worn away, and the softer rubber is now the “sole”. Soon, a hole will form and the shoes will be history.

Update March 2022: Still wearing them, but not all the time. I can feel the ground through the soles.

You can buy new and used Vazee Urges at Ebay.
