I've had one of these saws for more than twenty years.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new

Summary

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.

Pros

  • Cuts very well
  • Lightweight and fits easily into any backpack
  • Very durable

Cons

  • The 15-inch version is not good for large diameter logs.

The Sven-Saw is lightweight and fits into any backpack worth carrying. The saw is easily assembled, even when wearing gloves or mittens.
