Product Description

Product Description

Features a hardened carbon-steel blade with rust inhibitor and a lightweight tubular steel frame.

From the Manufacturer

Fiskars 30-inch bow saw is basically the equivalent of a human-powered chain saw, designed with a light, fast action that chews through branches too big for any lopper. It¿s ideal for removing large limbs or trimming pieces down to size after the initial cut. The easy-to-handle tubular steel frame secures a hardened carbon steel blade with rust inhibitor to ensure long cutting life. And the tension lever adjusts to keep the blade safely stretched taut. Plus, there¿s one feature that you can¿t see, but that counts most of all: Fiskars lifetime performance guarantee.

For a period of twenty years or so starting in about 1950, bow saws based on a design by the Sandvik Company in Sweden were used for serious work in forestry and arboriculture. They were lighter and easier to use than crosscut saws, but were much cheaper than gasoline powered chain saws, which had not quite permeated the market to the extent that they did later on. Unfortunately for those of us who still use bow saws for serious work, they are no longer made as well as they once were. Today's bow saws are almost all made by contract with companies in Asia and marketed for very light use.

Nonetheless, in the midst of this sad situation, the Fiskars stands out as one saw that is reasonably good. It is lightweight, has excellent balance, feels right in the hand, and the the blade stays taught in spite of regular use.

By comparison, the Corona 30 inch saw is strong but feels a little heavy. The Bahco and Gilmour versions of the 30 inch saw are lightweight and well balanced, but the tensioning handles are loose. The cheap plastic hand guard on the Bahco saw I own actually fell off the first time I used it and I have had to wrap the saw with tape to keep the handle tight. The saw selling for five dollars available from Northern Tool and Equipment Company is so poorly made it is appalling.

I have used the Fiskars 30 inch bow saw in trailwork and around the home, felling, bucking and limbing trees up to 10 inches in diameter quite easily. It cuts well in both green and dry wood with a Bahco No. 51 blade (all cutting teeth, no rakers), and it is small enough to get into tight places, which is often needed when clearing blowdowns or when limbing large trees. To cut trees in the 10 inch size range, one must, of course, cut from two directions.

The picture and description doesn't do this saw justice. I was leery buying another 30 in bow saw because the ones I've had over 21" are flimsy and easily bent. The Fiskar 30" Saw is not round but rather oval (making the bends very strong), heavy aluminum but yet light weight. It feels like a high quality durable saw in your hands. It's very unlikely this one will be damaged with normal use or by accidentally dropping a log on. If there was one thing that I would change it would be a better grip (larger) that fits my hand better. But it is comfortable enough to saw all day. I chose this saw because it cost was twice as much as the others on Amazon and the one's that are available locally. I relied on the theory that you get what you pay for, and for once I was right. I'd recommend this saw to anyone and am planning on replacing my 21" bow saw with the Fiskar 21" with the confidence it be made with the same quality.

I'm not sure why the other reviewers have glowing things to say about this saw. The frame is rigid as mentioned. There is NO tensioning mechanism for the blade. The blade tangs are made of what looks like aluminum and are barely adequate to hold the blade in place. The blade itself cuts VERY poorly, so poorly I was wondering if I got a manufacturing defect. If you have a few extra hours to kill, then by all means use this saw to cut a branch or two! The whole point of a bow saw is portability and quick sawing action. This one fails utterly.

I purchased this saw in June of 2008. It was manufactured in China.

I've used this product a number of times now and have found the Fiskars 30-Inch Bow Saw #70316935A to be an excellent choice for cutting tree limbs and trunks of considerable widths. The 30-Inch Saw Blade is lengthy, sharp, and flexible for all the applicable and demanding tasks. The Bow Saw Frame and integrated Handle are both strong and sturdy. However, for my particular "Grasp", the Handle could be a little more "accomodating" - nevertheless, that's not to say that the Bow Saw Handle isn't any less sufficient or adequate. Overall, though, this is a terrific tool for its intended purposes. (I also purchased the Friskars 30-Inch Replacement Saw Blade #70276935 at the same time as the Fiskars 30-Inch Bow Saw.)

We took this saw on a little "weekend away" so we could cut firewood without having to bring a chainsaw. This saw made pretty short work of several good sized oak and maple boughs that had fallen down from a prior storm. The aggressive teeth cut very efficiently both frontwards and backwards and the blade is thin enough and strong enough to reduce binding. For the money I am very happy with this purchase.

bought this saw hoping to cut some fallen trees into firewood. there was plenty of timber on the ground thanks to an ice storm two years ago.

this saw is very sharp and will cut though a good sized log as long as you don't have anything to do for a few hours.

will be investing in a chainsaw for the heavy cutting , but happy with this saw for cutting branches and small trees.

The blade on this saw has quite a bit of flex when using it sideways/at an angle. This makes it difficult to perform thrusting, cutting motions when you can't get the saw exactly horizontal (likely the case most times). The blade's metal is somewhat cheap feeling, with teeth that don't seem to grab real well. I used this to cut out some larger stumps from bushes, and it took longer then expected.

I've bought other Fiskars gear that worked great, but I'd probably pass on this one and check out the local Sears instead.
