crosscut saw filing

While not a guided adventure, this is a very special skill that Arden Corey has been able to offer to those in need. Working with many rare tools and ones fashioned after those of Martin Winters, a master filer and Corey's teacher, Corey brings a unique understanding to this lost art. His clients have included everyone from backpackers and horse packers to the U.S. Forest Service, forestry schools and professional logging sport competitors. It was in 1976 after first learning how to properly file the crosscut saw that he and his brother set a world bucking record of 32 seconds in a logging competition that was not broken for 14 years. Today Corey still uses crosscut saws when he is contracted to clear wilderness trails, and his filing business keeps him very busy during the winter months and between guided trips.

The majority of saws are sent and returned through the U.S. Postal Service, sandwiched between two pieces of plywood and held together by three bolts. Please contact us for further details and price quotes.
