Sven Sven-Saw 15UL-3



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

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


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.


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


  • 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.
