You can purchase a thicker blade for it.  I got one from MYU US Direct off of Amazon.  I attached a photo of the thickness differences between the standard and HD versions.  I also purchased a sheet of Kydex and molded a sheath for it.  That took a little bit but it's sturdy af and tight so the thing won't come out on it's own, probably takes over 5 pounds of force to get it free.  I started out with a Gomboy 240 (8.5" course tooth blade) which does have a nice hard case and I have it attached to the waist strap of my camelbak and it takes about two seconds to get it out and start cutting and it's fairly out of the way and small enough not to bother me when bouncing around.

Worth it all, when you need it! They take up minimal space and weigh so very little for the work they do. I've been cobbling up tools for these jobs for years, so I gotta get me one of these! Two of them ... so I can put my riding buddies to work too! For holding the saw closed, use a big heavy duty rubber band. Two of them, so you have a spare. Or stick the nose of the thing in a piece of bicycle tube. Another tool that augments this saw is a "boys axe" size Hudson Bay Pattern axe with a fiberglass handle and a file to sharpen it with. [There's an quite unusual  old Swedish logger's technique that will put a scary sharp, shaving edge on the thing in a couple of minutes, so you'd have to carry some kind of sheath for it.]

[Offer: If you want, I could demonstrate, but I'm not too computer/video savvy so I'd need some coaching there. Trail, brushing and fire-line crews were content to work easier with sharper tools ... and let me sharpen them!]

I have found no substitute for this saw.  Part of my essential gear for mountain riding.  My saw is on its fourth season now and is still sharp and going strong.

The only thing that sometimes bothers me is that the blade is fairly flexible.   You do need to be careful on the push stroke to avoid bending, and possibly breaking the blade.

Here is a picture of my saw at work this weekend.  Small tree, but a big pain when its across your trail on a steep side hill.
