Highly packable and functional
Bought this after a boundary waters canoe trio and using one my companion had. Carry it w/ me at all times now in my truck, will easily cut hard or softwood up to 8 inch in diameter quickly and efficiently, just keep the blade clean w/ a little kerosene (cuts through pine pitch residue) followed by a light wipe w/ a few drops of oil. Will last a life time!l
Best saw ever
We have a couple of others, but this one is light and works so much better. Well worth the extra dollars. Sets up quick and when packed down correctly, is light and easy to carry.
My husband purchased this saw for me this last Christmas. I teach a backpacking class each semester at a local University. The saw has performed incredibly well. It just makes it's way through wood in work like fashion. The blade doesn't buckle and it is a safe design. Plus, it is extremely light. It slides right down the side of your pack and you don't even know it is there. Great price and great quality!
Simply the best
A buddy has one of these saws and I was "the firewood guy" on an 8 day trip to Quetico. This saw is just perfect. Durable in it's simplicity, and I really like the rectangular shape, as it allows you to cut larger materials than triangular shaped saws. Light and packs perfectly in the Cordura sheath. Takes quite some abuse and doesn't break blades. I ordered my own upon return from that trip!
