The channel looks interesting. It reminds me of Bob Dustrude's folding bucksaw, which has two pieces of channel on the ends that attach to the center piece and fold out to a secure angle. Hmmm. I wonder if you could make a two-piece folding buck saw that you'd use to cut poles to support your hammock and then reconfigure the parts into two stake booms to hold the hammock ropes. The angles needed would be different for saw and stakeboom, and where would you store the blade while camped?
