I bought this saw for backpacking so I could process wood for fire. This thing cut through the wood like a knife cutting through butter. It is very light and compact, which is anyone who backpacks loves tools that weigh virtually nothing yet gives great performance. This saw is a must have for any backpacker or bushcrafter.

I'll write this review in the same format as I write my knife reviews. I absolutely love this saw, it is definitely the premier foresting saw on the market right now in both quality and price. I find it really hard to compare this folding saw to others because well, other saws don't compare.

Pros:
Price, the only way to match this saw is to pay twice as much (and the 396-Lap will still probably win)
Cuts on both push and pull of blade unlike most bargain saws that only cut on pulls
The safety on the saw is a necessity, the safety is extremely tight and won't close (or even open!) without the depression of the safety
Cuts like a champ, I just cut through a 7 inch diameter tree in 45 seconds... a real screw you to axes and machetes everywhere
Smooth woodcutting with minimal blade catches or sticks
Ultra light weight
Durable
Comfortable
Easily fits in my tac-vest

Cons:
The blade is significantly thinner than handle it folds into giving it a slight loose feeling while folded
Leather wrist strap... I'm not a fan of any leather wrist strap, I prefer nylon but others could like leather
No foresting tool should be ALL GREEN because if you drop it in the woods you won't find it! please wrap some orange tape on the saw handle before you bring it anywhere

Why pay 30 dollars for a saw as opposed to the usual folding saw that costs 15-20? Because all other folding saws are garbage, this is literally the only folding saw I've used that wasn't more trouble than it was worth (its actually quite the contrary, I can't live without this tool). Don't try to look for a better folding saw because you won't find one, you won't even come close!

EDIT- seeing how I have never used a silky, i would like to clarify my statement... this saw is hands down better than the saws you will find in hardware stores, however if you buy a silky you will probably be equally satisfied.

Took this saw backpacking with me along Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore and it was a great help. I was surprised to find downed wood at the only campsite we were allowed to have a fire at but this saw performed flawlessly.

It cut through 2-3" branches in no time at all. 4" branches took just a bit of time. I did manage to get a 6-8" log cut but that took a solid 5 minutes for me to go through(had to take a break lol - in all fairness this was at the end of the day which included a 9 mile hike with a 50lb pack). The guy that cut the 7" log in 45 seconds...he must be a cyborg or something or else the wood he was cutting was extremely soft. Then again, I was cutting through a downed maple tree that was good and dry.

I especially like how the blade's teeth are aggressively cut and I like that the saw cuts in both the push and pull directions. Other pruning saws only cut in the pull direction(which reduces the chance of bending the saw and also allows for a finer cut finish -ideal for pruning, but not so much for stroke efficiency.)

I love that the blade locks into the handle and also into the open position. I have not had any trouble with the blade unlocking at inopportune moments but I've really only used this saw one day.

The rubber grip on the handle is excellent and comfortable and the longer handle provides room for any size hand and position. You can almost use two hands on it.(Probably could if you have small hands but I have quite large hands - usually XL or XXL in gloves)

The only thing you need to watch out for with this saw is BENDING THE BLADE. The blade is thin to make it lightweight and also to make cutting easier but if you happen to stray off center in a push-cut then you can bend it fairly easily if you're not paying attention.

I haven't used this saw yet as my trees were trimmed before I got it, but it feels a bit flimsy. The handle will flex a bit, but should be fine for normal use. Proper replacement blades aren't available in the US. You have to order them from the UK. It would be cheaper to buy a new saw stateside. I wish I had known this before it was too late to cancel my order. Should have done better research.

You can get other Bahco replacement blades in the US, but they aren't Laplander blades (396LAP). Kershaw doesn't sell replacement blades at all.

The 396HP and 396JT blades from Bahco are the closest replacements available stateside, for around $15 and $20 respectively, but a whole new Kershaw saw can be had for under $20 if you look.

The lock is a pin that goes through the blade, so it's pretty solid.

I'll have to do some cutting and edit my review at a later date.

Do yourself a favor and order the Kershaw. It's the exact same saw and it's cheaper. You will just have to wait indefinitely for it to be in stock as Bahco can't keep up with the demand.

Update 9/19/10: I finally got around to using my Laplander. I used it and a hatchet to cut out fatwood from an old pine stump in dense woods. I had to clear some branches out to get to the stump, then make several cuts on the stump before using the hatchet. The Laplander held up to the task quite nicely.

The blade cut very easily even though the wood was hard and sticky, and the sap was caked on the blade. I flexed the blade pretty good a couple times and it just bounced right back without the slightest curve in it. Even the Bahco logo survived the job, until I cleaned the blade with a strong solvent. Even then the epoxy coating was undamaged.
