I bought the saw with the intent to use it in the BWCA in May 2024.
I have high hopes for this saw. it looks very strong and durable.
But if I could remember, I will come back after the BWCA trip with a valid report.
I encountered the Sven Saw on a camping trip in TN a few weeks ago, where I used my buddy's saw to essentially cut a tunnel through a bunch of fallen trees that had blocked a short trail from our campsite to the river (the banks of which were littered with 5-20ft high piles of timber that had fallen down the gorge and been swept downstream over the summer--if I didn't know better, I'd have though a logging operation was using the river for transport). It worked a treat, and the weight (~1lb) wasn't even worth mentioning, despite the nearly-vertical-at-times ~1mi hike with >1,000ft elevation change, including a few actual ladders. I ordered one the day I got home, and have had multiple occasions to use it around my yard/woods/firepit already. Love it!
Love the compact design and it fits inside the saw pouch that I had previously purchased to try to fit my bow saw into… which didn’t work. 😂
I will probably grab one of the larger saws as well, for trail rides on my dual sport motorcycle but this is a great size for fire prep, along with a good knife or axe/hatchet.
