Survival Saw - This Tool Could Save Your Life!A saw is often times handier than an axe or knife. While a knife and especially an axe will cut wood, a saw can do it faster and stealthier. In a survival situation, it is not always desirable to draw unwarranted attention to one's position.
A good survival saw should be well made and fold into a compact unit that can easily be carried on the belt or pack. Let's look at some of the best survival saws that are lightweight, easy to carry and will hold up when they are needed most.
Ultimate Survival Technologies SaberCut Saw is basically a hand held chainsaw with bi-directional cutting teeth and two straps attached to each end. This little unit will cut through small branches with ease. The main advantage to this saw is it packs up really small, although it is a little heavy to carry around all day.
This next saw is another super compact backpackers saw that makes quick work of cutting wood for camp. The 21" Sven Saw Backpacker's Saw assembles into a larger size saw when assembled. Yet when folded up, it takes up hardly any room at all. Super light and reasonably strong this makes for a good saw to have in the car or pack. One thing to be aware of is the wing nuts they use tend to work lose in heavy use. Better to have a spare on hand because when you lose one it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Try putting some blue Locktite on the stud, let it dry and than assemble. This will add some friction to the wing nut so it will not come lose as easily. Handy little saw and well worth keeping one in you car.
For the top of the line backpackers saw the Sawvivor Collapsible Saw is the one that fits the bill. Made from aluminum for weight savings with a design that is strong and comfortable to use. This saw will not let you down. This is a quality saw that will cut through limbs and small trees like butter. The best part is, it does not cost that much. If you can only afford one saw, this is the survival saw to get first.

One just needs to read the reviews on Amazon to see there is something special about this tool. When you consider the price and maintenance, along with the extra weight, risk of serious injury and noise it is no wonder that many people are simply opting to buy a Silky saw and leave the chain saw at home.
The Silky SUPER ACCEL 210 Large Teeth Folding saw is one of my favorite saws. The teeth are razor sharp and I have cut small trees with this saw with ease. This unit is made in Japan and is top quality. This is a well built little saw and light to carry in your pack. The rubber grips protect your hand and keep it from slipping.
