Even though I have Sawvivor, I have developed a desire to obtain a more traditional folding saw. The one I am looking for is made from hickory (I believe) and is tensioned by a rod & wingnut - but can be tensioned via cord and stick windlass. A couple of years ago I saw one at Piragis, but it has disappeared from their catalog.
So far I have come up empty-handed with my Google searaches. Anyone have a lead I can follow?

I have a saw of the "Fast Bucksaw" type. I have had it for years. It works quite well.

these in your sleep! No need for threaded rod/thumbscrew. Some leftover cord from your seat projects would make a nice tourniquet!

having an extended handle is not a deal-breaker for me in selecting a folding camping saw. Piragis sells a tubular aluminum folding saw with the extended handle, but I was looking for the "warmth" of hickory or ash.

I had a Schmidt saw for years. I wore it out and recently replaced it with a similar saw from Pole $ Paddle (someone linked it in another post). I really like this style saw. They're a little clumsier to assemble/disassemble than some of the others, but I find the function of the rectangular structure much better than the triangle of, for example, the Sven. I also prefer to have my hand gripping wood than metal or plastic.

Took longer than I expected, but it is complete. I built it using the Pack N Paddle saw as the template, and used choice red oak from SLowes. I elected to thread a rod to tension the saw (just to add a bit of a challenge and aggravation) but I can also tension it via a turnbuckle. Total cost was about $12 in materials.
Now, that's more like it.|
