Product Description

Pole and Paddle Folding Bucksaw.

High quality take down bucksaw built from unfinished hardwood ready for a coat of boiled linseed oil.

Picture shows assembled saw and packed down version.

Lightweight at 20oz. but will do some serious work.

I really like the features of this saw, the wing nuts only have to be loosened on the tension bar to pack down, not taken off. There is also a groove in the uprights  to wrap a cord around for use with a cord turnbuckle instead of the tension bar. The whole thing packs down nice and is held together with ties.

Takes standard 24" swede saw blades

Includes aggressive 24" Bahco blade.

  1. Better late than never 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2020

    I said I would update my review based on field use. Almost a year - and several canoe and hunting trips - later, I can say that this saw exceeded expectation and is coming on all trips from now on. It is as useful at home as in the bush; there is no compromise of functionality or sturdiness in order to make it portable. Very happy with this saw.

  2. Excellent quality saw ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2020

    This is a great, sturdy, well built take down saw. Assembly is really simple. Price point is about as good as you can get for a saw like this. I have stained and applied a few coats of linseed oil to it. Works great ! Plan on purchasing a case for it in the future. If your looking for a good fold down saw, look no further ! This is well worth the purchase.

  3. Excellent saw, Ben's description right on. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2019

    This is exactly what I was hoping for. I put a couple coats of boiled linseed oil on it and it looks great. Waiting for the ice to go out so I can take it along on the first canoe trip of the year. Will update review based on field use.

    The saw and all the other items from Ben's were exactly as described, and all top notch.

    Works as advertised, very classic felling to it

  5. Very good design 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2015

    I like the fact that it's made of wood. The design is well thought out. Surprisingly light weight. Cuts well. I do like the fact that I can customize the edges and other parts to suit my needs and likes.

  6. good quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2014

    I haven't taken it out to the woods yet, but its a good quality saw, and came with the dry saw blade. Before I take it out, I've put a stain on it, with a coat of protective lacquer.

  7. Excellent folding bucksaw at about half the price of other brands! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2014

    It is a nicely built bucksaw. I haven't put a finish on it yet, but I have cut up some cottonwood for my fires. It is well made and should last a lifetime!

  8. Comparison Test 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2013

    My Pole and Paddle saw arrived today, I had it five minutes and it was assembled and in the woods with me. I needed to cut some wood for the fireplace anyway, and I'm not always in the mood to listen to my chainsaw, so.... I cut my daily firewood with the new saw from Bens. For comparison I took along my aluminum Trailblazer saw. A damn fine saw in its own right, except, they are no longer in business, so obtaining a new blade will be difficult as the trailblazer blade uses a specific type of blade made to fit the slots on the handle.

    First off the pole and paddle saw is significantly lighter than the trailblazer. The cut of the blade is aggressive. I cut some pear wood for the smoker and the saw zipped right through the moderately hard wood. The trailblazer performed equally well. I will add that I have had the trailblazer for three years now and taken it on several canoe trips to process firewood for camp. Still cuts like a champ. The pole and paddle saw is not as comfortable in the hands as the rounded aluminum of the trailblazer. Disassembled the trailblazer is longer and more difficult to attach to a pack. I usually zip tie it to my pack frame or lash it to the lash tabs on my non frame pack. The Pole and Paddle fits inside both packs.. a plus I think. Overall I like the Pole and Paddle saw as much as my Trailblazer. Overall craftsmanship is excellent to outstanding. Only time and trips to the bush will tell if its rugged enough for long term use. Damn, I'm going to hate having to do that level of "testing". I'm smiling just thinking about it....

  9. Works well, has a few design flaws. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2013

    I decided I needed a saw like this because I had been practicing making my own saw frames in the woods. I found that I could make a pretty decent saw in about an hour (eventually I imagine I'll be able to do it faster), but found that I had much better results with some woods as opposed to others. A straight-grained, easily worked wood seems almost necessary to make a saw quickly enough to justify not bringing a frame, and this very often just isn't available. So I decided to buy this one.
    As far as cutting, it works wonderfully. The frame holds the blade at very satisfactory tension without being awkward to hold, and the blade itself is extremely sharp. It would benefit from being a size up(30"), but given how well it cuts at just 24", it seems like a reasonable compromise.
    My problems with the saw are fairly minor, but numerous enough to mention. First, the handle is pretty square. The edges are sanded down, but it still becomes rather uncomfortable in the hand before too long.
    Next, the groove in the handle that stores the blade does work, but is so thin that the teeth of the blade frequently get caught up on the surrounding wood when you're trying to put it away. This just makes folding it back down a pain.
    Last, and this is perhaps my fault, the final package always feels somewhat loose and floppy. It would probably help matters to secure the saw with rubber bands instead of ties which never seem to hold the frame tightly enough.
    None of these problems break the saw by any means, though. All things considered I'm pretty happy with it.

  10. Very well made and comfortable to use. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2013

    I have looked at this item many times and considered making the purchase, but had not followed through until recently. I am happy I made the purchase and it will be a staple in my pack for fall and spring outings. I like it so much I have included it in the packing list for family outings in the RV.

    To try the product out, one weekend while smoking a roast I filled my smoker wood buckets by taking larger split sections of dry cherry and cut them down to 4-5 inch lengths. I did use the less aggressive blade (purchased separately) as recommended for dry wood. The split sections were all about 26-28" long and 6-8" across (was a large cherry tree). The saw was very comfortable and I found the use of it to be very efficient. I was going to just make a few cuts as to try it out and then move to my power table saw, but after starting I continued to use it alone while waiting on the meat to cook and taking breaks to check temps and feed the smoker.

    I do have a couple of steel tube buck saws that support the same type of blade, but I find this saw to be more comfortable, efficient, and love the pack ability of the item. This would make a wonderful gift for any outdoors man who spends any time in the woods especially during fall through spring months.
