About the Saw

Our Unique Design


The Leather Straps secure the Windlass to the saw handles, which lock them in the closed position.

The Frame is crafted from either Walnut or Mahogany hardwood for superior durability, strength, and rot resistance, while achieving a lighter weight than traditional maple or oak saws.

The Grips are finely hand sanded into an ergonomic shape, for endless sawing comfort with no hot spots. 

The 21" Bahco Dry Wood Sawblade is long lasting and razor sharp out-of-the-box. You may add a Green Wood blade if you prefer that style. 

The Windlass is reinforced with a brass rivet, and secured between two lengths of MIL-SPEC 550 Paracord. 

The Brass Slotted Screw Post's are used so you can easily remove or change a blade in the field.
