any 18in or less pack saw buck saw?

Hi,

Looking for some (non-discontinued) models of bucksaw/packsaw.
Must be 18in long or less when disassembled (to fit in hard case).
Preferably a good 6in deep and not a triangle design.

(This is strictly for unblocking road of fallen trees when unmoveable and no way around/under/over; it is not for camping or building a commercial center!)

Any favorite models? Links?

Swen 15" folding saws are awesome. Much better leverage to actually saw a bigger log then most.

I like the Sven 15 inch too. It is a triangle shape assembled but packs small. A cut to length mountain bike inter tube make a good protective sleeve for it. It will fit in a 100 oz size Camel Bak too.

Just buy a Silky hand saw and be done with it. Cutting anything bigger than about 8" with a hand saw is a lot of work.

My two cents (and I have sawed trees by hand!) :
Your right-hand sawing on a tree IS very hard and the reason I'd only consider a "swedish" style, thin, sharp, blade in a frame that folds- that will do a tree of size w/o killing you. I see pics here in thread of what are best described as high quality "pruning saws"?

I wished mine was red like that one. The saw has a quality blade and works very well. I did buy a spare blade just in case.
I have used it a lot, Of course I just walk out of camp with a round small tube and come back with an arm load of cut wood. Other riders are amazed with the saw when I show it to them.

Can you tell me how long is the tube (to the 1/4 in) ? looks more than 18in long if the blade is 18in....

Also like the Sven saw.

Also, makes a good jack under swing arm or skid plate for changing tires on the trail if you don't have a center stand.
