We have the 12 inch saw. We use it camping and find it's lighter than any axe and more effective than a hatchet. We mainly use it for gardening, using it as a pruning saw that makes fast work of any branches. The only downside is that it can't get into tight spaces because of the bow. We even used it as an emergency hacksaw and to flush cut some boards on the deck. We use the 24 inch one for firewood at home. It's much safer than an axe.

Great for firewood and for camping too.
We always take this saw when we go camping for cutting logs for the fire. At home we use it for pruning and cutting firewood. It is a well built saw and performs really well. Cheers.

Great for yard work
An amazing saw for around the house or cottage. We use ours mostly for pruning but it can also handle larger tasks.

This Bowsaw is fantastic for pruning trees around the house, and for when you head out camping.
It's very light, but makes short work of even large branches, and it's a bargain at the price!

Great bowsaw for the price. Cuts fast and with little effort. Durable yet lightweight. Stands up to tough jobs. An essential around the farm.

Good basic saw
This saw is a good buy for light use. The blade is very sharp and the construction is quite sturdy.

Great Camping Saw
The small version of this saw is very packable for use on camping trips into the backcountry. Much more productive than an axe, and much more durable and productive than a saw manufactured for 'campers', I won't travel without one now.

I bought this bow saw in order to limb up a few trees, to cut up fallen branches, and to clear areas overgrown with brush. I am slow using it but as a result, it is very safe. I can easily cut through soft wood. I am very pleased with this inexpensive bow saw.
