Bahco Laplander Folding Saw

The Bahco Laplander Folding Saw is considered by many in the Bushcraft and Survival Community to be one of the best all round Bushcraft Saws on the market.

The Bahco Laplander is Swedish Made and has a premium feel to it’s construction compared to some of the other slightly cheaper option such as Silky and Gerber. The handle is made of shatterproof and high-density plastic with a rubber coating that gives a good grip in most weather conditions. A leather lanyard is also included providing a little extra security from dropping your Laplander.

To begin using the the Bahco Laplander you must first Press the blade release button, I like this simple safety feature as it ensures the saw blade is locked into position when both open and folded away preventing the blade from opening when it shouldn’t and more importantly from closing over your fingers.

The Bahco Laplander is only 6.67 ounces (190 grams) and folded it’s only 9 inches (23 cm) long. It has been developed to be reliable, lightweight and compact and is perfect for bushcraft.

It’s admired by Prepper’s, Survivalist and Outdoorsmen all over the world.

The Bahco Laplander is ideal for cutting branches and felling small to medium trees. The XT toothing (which is very sharp) is designed for cutting in both directions, so it cuts when you push and it cuts when you pull unlike some of its competitors that cut only on the pull.

Provided you don’t take on any larger trees / branches, you’ll notice that the blade very rarely sticks, and it makes easy work of anything within its capacity.
