Sven Folding Saw

Never leave home without it. This saw is very compact, light, and super sharp. The ultra “lightweight” crowd snicker when I bring this along, but ineveitably they ask to borrow it during canoe trips. The 15" will cut up to 3" deadfall easily. You do have to be careful when assembling it not to lose the wingnut. Full review

Gerber Exchange-A-Blade Saw

This product is great for a beginner. However I quickly upgraded after a couple months of use due to quality issues. The Exchange-a-Blade Folding Saw by Gerber was my first folding saw. It came at a cheap and affordable price. My first impressions were not good. The blade was very wobbly. And the saw struggled to cut through wood, which was concerning since that was its purpose. After a couple uses the first blade dulled so I switched to the other. Before the new blade dulled I purchased a new saw. Full review

Bahco Laplander Folding Saw

This is a super lightweight folding saw. It exceeds expectations at a very affordable price. The Bahco Laplander in one word is EXCEPTIONAL! This product has endured countless camping and backpacking trips, and still cuts with ease. It is very lightweight as well. I went on a week-long backpacking trip and had to make sure I only took what I needed. A friend asked if anyone had a saw and I said "no," only to accidentally stumble across is a few minutes later looking for a different piece of gear. Full review

Gerber Freescape Camp Saw

Looks great, and the folding mechanism is clever, but it's too small, and I was disappointed in the quality... Ease of Use (4/10): I'll talk about the folding mechanism later, the actual use of this saw is fundamentally the saw as any other bow saw. You'd think there isn't anything that Gerber could screw up, but there are a few impediments inherent in this particular design which make it difficult to use. The blade length is very short, which means the logs you can cut cannot be more than about… Full review

Gerber Exchange-A-Blade Saw

Accepting the Gerber Exchange-A-Blade Saw for what it is and what it is not, will help greatly when sizing up a cutting task. I've owned the Gerber Exchange-A-Blade folding saw for several years now. My folding saw came as part of a larger kit called the Gerber Off-Road Survival Kit 05635. Quite frankly, I take this kit with me every journey. Granted, car camping only and it stays in the vehicle.  I received this pricey Gerber Off-Road Survival Kit as a Christmas gift from my son. The only piece… Full review

Gerber Exchange-A-Blade Saw

Handle started falling apart almost immediately. Lock button pops out of place. Piece of junk! Spend your money on something else. Handle started falling apart almost immediately. Didn't last an hour trimming less than 3-inch diameter branches. Lock button pops out of place. Piece of junk! Spend your money on something else. Full review

Gerber Sliding Saw

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

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
