Default Folding saws

I did a search and found nothing. What type, brand etc folding saws/and or knives does everyone use for clearing shooting lanes, and cutting 2" vines and or trees, shrubs etc? I normally just use oversized wire cutters which have done well up to 1" but this year I'll need to do a little more work. Thank you in advance.

I picked up a combo set from Gerber at Walmart for around $35 that included a folding saw, and a pretty nice knife as well as a gutting hook. Haven't used the gut hook of knife much since I got it after season, however I have used the saw and it seems to be of great quality considering the price.

I bought a woodsman Pal.
Woodsman Pal

I haven't used it let, so I cannot comment on it, but I haven't been getting any lip from the wife.
I have used gerber hand saw that goes back into the handle, it worked very well. I also used a cordless chainsaw (4" blade) it also did the job well.

I use one of these:-

It get's the job done in a few minutes--shooting lanes, branches and trees about 2" in diameter. It really works well and there's 'no noise' to alert the critters.

I use the saw blade on my Leather man. If you need more than that you are hunting in the wrong spot.

Gerber Exchange a blade saw. Comes with wood blade and fine tooth bone blade, all in a self contained camo sheath for $20. I don't go hunting without it.

I've tried several and I prefer the browning model. I've had mine for years and have cut hundreds of limbs and it is just now getting dull. I will probably buy a new one for this season.
