A bonesaw is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


A bonesaw is a type of pre-War hand-held medical equipment used for amputations. This item is portable, has a metal saw for cutting into flesh and bone, and a wooden handle for handling by a trained doctor. This item is associated with other hand-held medical equipment on a compartment tray and often accompanies them. The Pip-Boy 3000A categorizes the bonesaw as a junk item. It is useful only as Rock-It Launcher ammunition as it cannot be used as a weapon.

Bonesaws in the Vaults are communally owned and were passed from one generation to the next. The expectation of Vault residents is that the bonesaws will be properly cleaned and maintained to ensure their usability.
