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-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).

The blade is SHARP, goes through pine like butter, and harder wood very effectively. We use this saw during… Full review

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

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
