Fair enough. I have no doubt that the Silkys are better. They have an amazing reputation and I don't think it's hype. One day I'll pull the trigger.

OTOH, when building kits that will be used infrequently if ever, and maybe not even by me, the Bahco is a good choice IMHO.

Oh, no doubt! The Laplander gets the job done. But most of my camping is dispersed so I'm almost always gathering up a lot of wood. A buddy of mine has a professional grade chainsaw (a Husquarava he bought while working for the forest service) which he'll bring along if we're not hiking in. Great for those forest service/access roads that lead way back into the stick. But if I'm hiking in I like my Katanaboy.

Among the folding saws, Silky and Bahco, which is more durable? Which blade length and teeth (fine, medium, or large) is best for cutting firewood? Size is a consideration for bug out.

Edit: Looking at the Silky website, I should avoid the large teeth.

I like the large-tooth saws but where I live it's all pine, Larch, etc. Finer tooth saws are good for hardwoods like Oak, etc.
