Gnaw is a knife sized chainsaw. It is able to power through material with very little effort from the user, while also being useful, due to its small size, in awkward working conditions and confined spaces where other saws would be useless. Its design allows for powered plunge cuts into harder materials such as wood and plaster. The blade is driven by a small powerful electric motor, which is powered by a removable rechargeable battery pack which can be replaced on the go.

The Gnaw also features a internal oil system much like those in larger chainsaws which continuously keeps oil between the rotating chain and the track which it runs around.
