According to my brother, one should not bounce a chainsaw off one's knee as it is very hard on denim.

Yeah, that's a problem with denim knees. On the plus side, they're quite shock-resistant.

My brother once reported a similar phenomenon involving circular saws, hardwood flooring and nails. All in all, he said, it's something which should be avoided.

What caught my attention was that he said 'when' not 'if.' It's obviously a Nicoll family thing.

I think this can be safely generalized to all pants, regardless of fabric type.

Kevlar pants could be a bit better in this situation.

Good news: if you turn the chainsaw on first, it won't bounce.

This presumably explains all the ripped jeans I see people wearing in the streets these days.
