    I thought this was an April fool's joke, in theory it could cut through a branch though it might be difficult to hold the teeth "in line" to produce the desired kerf.

    A bow saw would be a better hand tool IMO.

    Similar tools work well for cutting pipes in hard to access areas so can’t see why not. I would only be using due to access tho. Like above a bow saw or similar would be better.

    There’s so many teeth in contact with the log I’d guess you’d need arms like Popeye to pull it!

    There used to be small versions of those (more wire based) in RAF survival kits. But it was for desperate times.
    I have seen something like the above used by TWO people in the middle of a forest, presumably as an emergency kit as lighter to carry and needing no power . I can't remember if it was documentary or drama
