Hey all,

I didn't know if this should go in the bug out gear or bushcraft section, but since it's a build-your-own and can be done afield, I figured I'd throw it in over here. A while back I found, somewhere, some simple plans for a packaway style buck saw that'll fit in a pack. I'm curious to know if someone has this bookmarked or a .pdf on their computer. I would really like to try and put one together just for kicks, and test out it's real viability. Anyone have this?

Ever seen a Sawvivor?

Below is a buck saw that I made. It's really more of a prototype, as I plan to make one using some nice hardwood and a bow saw blade.

Packs down to this:

These can be made in any size that you can buy the blade, and you can swap out hacksaw, bowsaw, etc. blades as the purpose requires. In my prototype, the cross bar is too close to the blade for my hand, but my boy can use it fine. you can adjust the tension on the blade by flipping that piece of cane around a few times to tighten the string.

I had a sawvivor and gave it away to a buddy and then ordered another. This one has loose rivets so sending it back to Campmor. Darn shame as I like my old Sawvivor. Probably going to exchange it for a Trailblazer 18-inch take down Buck saw. It’s the same price though a bit heavier.

I've liked the Trailblazer so far - never did get to a point of enjoying the triangular saws like the Sven Saw, and for the size & draw of the Sawvivor, I'd rather go with a hi-quality pruning saw.

I haven't beaten the Trailblazer saw hard enough to really test its limits, but I love how tightly it packs down to that small tube.
Been meaning to post a gear test for it, but time slips by...

Lehman's carries them now, too - good company with a good warranty.

I like my Sven Saw, though it's more of a bow saw.

I like the saw that comes with my Glock entrenching tool:
