The chainsaw...awesome for cutting down trees, taking out brush super duper quick, and fighting off zombies. The only thing is a chainsaw is big...and rather heavy. Definitely not pocket sized. So I recently stumbled upon some replacement chainsaw blades, and I hacked em to make me my own pocket zombie defense system... well don't know how well it'd stand up to zombies, but I do know it's handy for cutting up firewood, or clearing small trees, and after your all done just carry it in your pocket. Hope you enjoy!

Step 1: What You'll Need
1. a chainsaw replacement blade
2. a metal saw
3. an old garden hose
4. gorilla glue
5. duct tape of your preferred color
6. metal saw
7. chop saw
pretty simple...how i like it
Step 2: Cut Through the Chainsaw Blade
First thing you'll have to do is cut through the blade with the metal cutter. This can be kind of tricky since each joint of the blade pivots. You'll definitely want to wear safety glasses for this part. Once your through the blade move on to the next step.
Step 3: Cut Two Garden Hose Handles
Now cut your garden hose to a whatever length you want for a handle. What ever is comfortable for you is the best length. I used my chop saw to cut the hose.
Step 4: Glue the Handles On
Dip the hose handles in a bowl of water, and shake off the excess water. Gorilla glue sets on damp surfaces which is why you dampen the hose. Put some Gorilla Glue on the chain and some in the hose, then slip the hose over the chain. Use duct tape to hold the hose to the chain and cover the handles to get nicer looking handles. I went with camo duct tape...gives it a nice manly flavor. After the glue dries go try it out, then stuff it in your pocket for the next camping trip. Enjoy!
