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
