"The Fast Bucksaw is the most beautifully crafted folding saw I've seen.
All the edges are rounded; the crossbar has pegs in it that help hold
the saw firmly together when folded; the tension bar has L-shaped clips
on it that protect the wood when the saw is in use and lock the tension
bar to the crossbar when the saw is folded. All this loving attention
to detail ... "
"The Fast Bucksaw is hands down the best folding camp saw ever. End of discussion.
The design, quality of production, portability, and just plain beauty and feel of wood is unsurpassed.
As for durability, I have used my saw on guided canoe trips for over 30 years and never had a failure.
Some of those trips in the early days were with teenagers and you know how hard they are on equipment.
In my experience I've found that aluminum saws tend to vibrate and loosen up with lots of use and abuse,
whereas the Fast Bucksaw has endured the test of time. Many people, including me, call it a work of art."
