Yup, the bow-saw doesn't have the same ring to it. Ditto, Dbl edge
brush-ax/brush-hook (no longer allowed), scythe, bow-saw, ax, cross-cut-saw
(felling & bucking), ax, adze, pulaski, mcleod, pick-mattock hazel hoe, rock
bar, etc. Not a power tool in the bunch, back then.
In fact, the cross-cut-saw is what got me involved, in the first place.
I got volunteered by my dad, as a teenage, to help a friend, who need an
experienced cross-cut-saw partner. I fell in love with the Trail, as a
maintainer. Became a long-distance hiker quite a few years later.
FWIIW, it was my snoring that got me labeled as "Chainsaw", not experience
with one -- albeit I was later licensed as a master sawyer.
