Sven Saw and pocket chain saw

Recommended Posts

Currently I use a 21" bow saw. I've read some reviews on the Sven Saw and it seems people really like them. Besides the portability of folding down so compact what are the advantages of this saw over a traditional bow saw? Basically, does it cut better with less effort? Anyone have experience with those pocket chain saws, aka. survival saw, saber saw? Do they cut any easier or are they just more convenient because they're so compact? Or are they a gimmic?

I think the Sven saw is liked for it's compactness. But that triangle shape doesn't give you a lot of space for bigger logs. In an emergency situation, a person might get by with one of those hand chain saws, but I wouldn't expect any extended use out of one.

I was a big fan of bowsaws for a couple decades, I guess I'm still a fan, but I've reached the point where I'd like something more compact. And the best saw I've found for how I like to saw is the Bob Dustrude Quick Buck Saw. Found at the Duluth Pack company. It's one of my favorite pieces of camping gear.

I'm not sure which brand I have, but it is very similar to the Sven saw. I don't really see the need for a larger saw since sawing through a 12" log sucks. It folds up nice and tight and the design allows you to carry a spare blade without taking up extra space.

    • And they still come out with that product! 🙃
    • I ran my last set of hankook dynapro ATM tires for 94,000 and wasn't at the 3/32 wear mark. Just wanted to get a new set before I started grad school. 40k on my current set without issues. I rotated mine every 7500 miles. I have a friend who got 103,000 out of his set. I know people will call BS but I have no reason to lie and no incentive. Both were on half ton chev trucks and I took mine down some super sketchy farm roads that were previously flooded and some flooded logging roads. It's the only tire I'll buy and their fairly affordable. Also a good alignment goes a long ways in the longevity of tires
    • So..............when do pitcher's and catcher's report to spring training?
    • Wine, rum and Woodford 🙄
    • Do they drink Wine while cooking like our ladies?  😋
    • I just put on a set of Falken Wildpeak ATW3 before hunting season and have been impressed so far. The only problem is I don’t have anything to compare against because they replaced the factory tires on my pickup that were 6 years old. I wanted a little more aggressive tire than the factory tires and these seemed to fit that description. I only put about 7-8k miles on my pickup a year so it’s going to take a while to find out for sure how they are in the wrong run but I am happy so far and the price on these tires was great. 
    • I guarantee they are all hand made. 50 lbs of dipping chocolate 10 lbs of white chocolate, mass quantities of sugar, coconut and fondant. Then 13 women put in 8 hours of mixing, rolling, dipping and trimming. Each family has some of the centers mixed ahead of time because they need to cool and set overnight.
    • check out the smith lift it is expensive but they work.
    • Thanks again.  Now the issue is how do you tell someone that the ideas she has are wrong.  She has never accepted advice from me.  Maybe I should have one of you guys contact her.  No, actually I wouldn't do that to anyone.
    • anyone find a lighter alternative to the ice castle tables? the thing can be a PITA to move and align
