"The Fast Bucksaw is the most beautifully crafted folding saw I've seen."

From "Camp Saws" by Robert Kimber, Country Journal, November '88

"The Fast Bucksaw is hands down the best folding camp saw ever. End of discussion."

The FAST BUCKSAW was designed by Paul Swanstrom, in co-operation with Cliff Jacobson, noted outdoor writer. They were dissatisfied with the metal-framed folding camp saws on the market: they were too flimsy: they didn’t pack well, and they wouldn’t cut big logs.

The FAST BUCKSAW gives canoeists, backpackers and family campers, a truly collapsible saw with full stroke cutting efficiency and minimum bulk. It collapses to a discreet 2 inches by 21 inches with the blade folded safely inside the handles. This handcrafted saw feels like a one-piece unit. Assembly and take down are fast and easy with the attached wing nuts and shock cord. The FAST BUCKSAW is made of hard maple and has a hand-rubbed oil finish. The aluminum hardware assures an honest weight of just under 16 oz.
