Gerber Sliding Saw

rated 5 of 5 stars It weighs almost nothing, fits almost anywhere, and cuts almost anything (wooden). Worth its weight in gold. I've owned the Gerber Sliding Saw for a few years now, and I completely love it. I've broken a hefty inch or so off the tip of the blade from it getting snagged and kinking a few times, but most of it is still there and works like a champ. I've learned to focus more on the pulling action of the saw than the pushing, to avoid snagging and breaking more of the blade. I wouldn't call it brittle… Full review

Sven 21-Inch Blade

rated 5 of 5 stars Ever see a camp gadget that you just had to have? If not, then check this saw out, by far the best saw on the market. Had mine for over two years and it has never let me down. I first saw this saw on a backpacking trip to Panthertown Valley. I used my swiss army knife for years. I normally go by the "burn nothing bigger than your wrist" rule. But after seeing this saw in action, I knew I had to have one. It easier to use than a traditional bow saw. At 1lb 1oz it's lighter than a bowsaw. And the… Full review

Bob Dustrude Quick Buck Saw

rated 5 of 5 stars Bob Dustrude's Quick Buck Saw is the most powerful folding backpacking bucksaw on the market. This saw is a tool of choice for any wood processing job whether being in the woods or on your backyard. Folding, packable, relatively lightweight, rugged and reliable, it will fit in almost any backpack. Simple and efficient construction from reliable materials the Quick Buck Saw offers the best value for money and will serve for many years. Being in a back country for multiple days never goes without… Full review

Silky Big Boy

rated 5 of 5 stars Best folding saw on the market! Made for pruning trees, it's a 360mm folding hand saw, 14.2-in blade 30.11-in overall length, 6 teeth per inch.It is listed at 1 lb but my saw only weighs 14.5 oz. See more at: http://www.silkysaws.com/Silky_Saws/Folding-Straight_2/Silkys-BIGBOY-360mm-LG-Teeth-Hand-Saw#sthash.WDZVIYmr.dpuf The standard bearer for small folding camp saws is the Bahco Laplander. It is the predominant and most often seen saw among campers and bushcrafters. My buddy bought one and it… Full review

Sven Sven-Saw 21UL-2

rated 5 of 5 stars A must have for every camper! Quality, usable, sustainable product. I have owned this saw for 30+ years, using it consistently on hiking, backpacking, car camping, canoeing, and kayaking trips...along with yard pruning. I am still on the original blade, which has retained its sharpness despite my abuses. I have not lost the wingnut at any time, though I have fumbled and dropped it on occasion...yet I don't see that as a weakness or con. Early on, I inadvertently backed over the saw with my truck… Full review

Sven Sven-Saw 21UL-2

rated 4 of 5 stars Great tool for the money and weight. Bought this to replace a foldable saw that was really not much more than a toy. The Sven saw, OTOH is a viable tool for anyone who needs light weight and a self stowing package (saw collapses into the red handle you see in the picture). At 21" you won't be lumberjacking, but cutting up limbs and trees up to about 8 inches in diameter is very realistic. The blade is SHARP, goes through pine like butter, and harder wood very effectively. We use this saw during… Full review

Sven Sven-Saw 21UL-2

rated 5 of 5 stars If you want to take a saw backpacking, this is a fantastic choice. I usually leave it at home for warmer trips, but during the winter it's a great tool to have for cranking out large amounts of firewood. It'll chew through 4-5" logs easily, and if you're patient, you can cut down entire (dead) trees with it. It collapses down to a long, slim tube that's easy to pack, and setup and breakdown is a quick and easy process. It's way lighter than most hatchets, and you can produce much more wood for the… Full review

TrailBlazer 18-Inch Take-Down Buck Saw

rated 5 of 5 stars Trailblazer quality. I was actually looking for a Sawvivor in the first place, but since I am in Turkey, I had not had any luck of getting one from an online source so I started looking for other saws. I saw some reviews about this particular model, they were all positive. I then was able get one through ebay. I got it and put it in my gear box, not knowing what it was capable of until last week when I went to this season's first winter camp. Along with my two buddies, we made a winter snow camp.

Sven Sven-Saw 15UL-3

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had one of these saws for more than twenty years. It's the handiest backpacking saw around, in my opinion. It will cut through softwoods like you-know-what. If I didn't already have two large bow saws, I'd buy the 21 inch version of this saw as well and just keep it in my car. If you've ever seen a tree blocking your drive back to civilization, you'll know why. The Sven-Saw is lightweight and fits into any backpack worth carrying. The saw is easily assembled, even when wearing gloves or mittens. Full review
