comment How do you sharpen a hand chain saw?
@phidauez -- I edited the answer to also add a good video. The one problem I see with both your video and mine is that the sharpening depends on the chain being on a chainsaw bar to hold the chain steady and prevent twist. Since it's not practical or advisable to just vise the chain itself, it's not clear to me how this can be done with a free chain.

On second thought, both answers are about cutting, so I will just make the question fit this perfectly excellent answer.

@Mr.Wizard -- What I'm referring to is the cutting down of larger wood in an emergency when all you have is a knife handy. The videos are excellent, but appear to be how-to on carving wood as opposed to chopping down small trees.

comment Is it possible to improvise a knife sharpener in the wild?
IMO -- this answer leaves a bit to be desired, it doesn't really provide any idea about how to actually do this. A reader could not take this answer and try to apply it in the real world without having so much surrounding knowledge that the answer would no longer be necessary. In it's current form it's barely one step above "sure if your knife is blunt, try a rock". Is there anything you can do to flesh this out and be thorough?
