An excelent tool.......
on 6 May 2010
With most tools, it's worth paying a little extra for quality.
Having looked at (not that much cheaper) saws in local diy emporiums, I decide to see what else was available.
I've always held Bacho tools in high regard, so was pleased to find this saw at a good price - when it arrived, I was immediately impressed with the build and design, there are bow saws and good bow saws - the Bacho is one of the latter.
I hate the usual 'finger trapping' blade tensioner, hence was pleased to find a screw tensioning device - another plus point is the decent hand grip and knuckle protector, which seems well made.
I'd planned to get a 24 inch saw, but as the 30 was actually a little cheaper I went for that, and don't regret the decision - on thicker timber it makes all the difference. The Bacho blade goes through green wood like no other I've used and the edge seems to last pretty well.
Having spent a few hours cutting green firewood (up to about 10 inch diameter) all I can say it's a pleasure to use a tool that works as it should.
