This is interesting considering some of that packaging you almost have to use a chainsaw to get it open.

Thanks for the headsup.

I can’t decide if this is an incredibly late april fools joke or if someone has been over celebrating 4/20. Who actually keeps the saw blades in the packaging anyways; not to mention the fact that any saw blade is a laceration hazard by nature.
