Does anyone out there use a folding saw and have an opinion as to which to purchase?

I have never owned one but am looking to buy one.

I have read and watched very good reviews of the Bahco Laplander folding saw and so was leaning towards that.

I was just curious if anyone had any thoughts.

Thanks.

Bacho is my go to little folder. I think I have 4 of them. One is always in the truck, and one is always in the 72 hour bag. Light, tough and sharp.

Thanks Coldwater, that sounds like a ringing endorsement.

I am now debating between the Bacho Laplander and, after reading some good reviews, the Silky Big Boy.  The big Boy is a bit larger and costlier.

Used my Bacho on Saturday to cut down our Christmas tree again this year. Fresh sappy pine and sliced through it like butter.

That's great firsthand insight coldwater.  One of the great smells is fresh cut pine.  How do you clean sap off your blade?  Do you treat your blade in anyway?

I think I am going to start with the Bacho, the size will also allow my young son try his hand at it on smaller limbs.

Depending on how much wood processing I do on my property perhaps someday I'll get the Big Boy as well.

The Bacho has a black coating on it that pretty much cleans itself. I just hit it off with a rag real quick and stuck it back in my bag.

Good to know, I ordered mine yesterday.
