Due to a recent tv show I learned about a shortened crosscut saw. I have a couple one man crosscut saws. But this guy from Red Devil Alaska came on this show with a shortened felling saw. It looked to be about 3 foot long. The other participants brought silky type saws, which are sharp and cut great from what I have seen. Anyhoo the guy with the shortened crosscut had put up a good deal of firewood, big rounds. I have never heard of cutting a crosscut saw down like that. It seems like a good option. A felling saw is narrower than a bucking saw and is probably better suited to shorten.
