The Sven folding saw is compact and durable, making it perfect for backcountry use like cleaning up campsites and gather firewood. The total pack weight is 10.7 ounces (303 g) and folds into its aluminum frame for a total length of 17 inches. Don’t be fooled by its size, this little saw can cut through 8 inch diameter log quickly if you really tried.
Being located in Minnesota, the majority of our campsites and hiking trails allow you to burn campfires. Depending on the group hiking the Superior Hiking Trail its always a question if we should bring the Sven. If there is a planned trip which requires my canoe, the Sven Saw is a necessity.
Of course you always have the compact chain link saws and cable saws. But when you compare to the effort and cutting abilities, the Sven always comes out on top.
Personally, I use this saw more often around the home then at camp. I believe when packing for a trip the extra 10.7 oz it better reserved for a bag of skittles. But I will always have it with me in the backyard at the fire pit cutting a recently downed tree.
If you are looking for a great saw for your ATV, canoe and car camping trips, this is it. With a great price point and made in America, you can’t go wrong with the Sven folding saw.
