One Man Saw

Loggers like "tie hacks" (who hewed railroad ties from small trees) used one man saws to fell the trees and cut the ties apart. They are smaller and thicker than the two man saws, so that they may be pushed as well as pulled in the cut. (Two man saws are pulled alternately by the men on either side; if pushed, they buckle and stick.)
