The J.A Fallman Bucksaw from Sanborn Canoe Co.
The guys at Sanborn Canoe Co. are best know for the fine hand made canoe paddles they produce, but recently they’ve added this classic tool to their line.
A bucksaw in the woods can be as indispensable as a good axe or hatchet. Quite simply, the amount of wood one can produce with larger tool could be the difference between a comfortable night in the woods or one spent shivering and bitter. I’ve gone thru several lesser saws in the past, mostly of the fold out variety, but I believe this is the last one I’ll need.
Made of solid Hickory, it’s as beautiful a tool as it is functional. I like pretty things… in a manly sort of way. This came with a canvas roll-up for the parts and a bandana, presumably to soak up the sweat and keep the dust out while ripping thru timber. I like the color too. Rolled up it’s sufficiently compact and light enough that there’s no question about whether to bring it along or not. It’s coming.
If you’re into canoeing or camping or just like functional art for your wall go check out their wares.
I’m going to need a 7 degree paddle….
Thanks for the kind words Chris!
