After buying a cheap Faithfull folding saw (cheap in quality, not in price if I am honest) and breaking it after cutting about 5 bits of wood in the great outdoors, (it was sharp but the blade just snapped, not very impressive) I decided to buy the saw that Ray Mears himself uses- the Bahco Laplander. Bahco is one of the best tool makes there is, it is Swedish and their build quality and comfort of use is second to none in my oppinion. So I bought my Laplander, it is brilliant, very sharp, top notch quality, attractive to look at and very comfortable to hold. It is also very strong, it has seen some hard use and I have yet to damage a tooth and the blade has shown no signs of getting blunt and I don't see it snapping in the near future, this saw has an idiot proof locking mechanism also. One thing I will say is this: Don't rely on the leather strap, due to it being leather the knot can undo itself if you have this attached to your belt, you can change the knot though so this is not a major concern.
