20F01.01 Western Log Saw

Available 12/04/2015


All lumber saws that we have ever seen use a variation of a logger's crosscut pattern tooth (for example, a "perforated lance pattern") and are typically very long - even one-person saws. The shortest one we have ever seen had a 38" blade - until now. A California firm that makes professional arborist tools has designed this 28" blade saw with 4tpi that cuts wet or dry round logs like a dream. It won't clog or bind up like others saws.

In fact, we cut with it every bit as fast on a very wet pine log as with a traditional logger's saw - a result that frankly surprised us. The relative performance degraded a bit - but not seriously - as the saw got further into the log but there can be no doubt that it performed exceedingly well. We recommend it for logs up to 12" in diameter.

Made in the USA.

  • Delivers As Advertised

    John Henry Goldman, 1/29/2015 The blade is strong and substantial in thickness, there is no tendency whatsoever to bend and crease (which makes a saw useless). The teeth are incredibly sharp - combined with the ergonomic design I found a sawing motion that was effective and easy on the body. It saws through large logs well, its stated purpose. A keeper!

    Chris Read, 9/29/2014 WOW, what a saw! I can actually fit all 4 fingers in the handle. I have cut many cords of wood by hand. I wish that I had this saw years ago!
  • #30 Bull Saw

    J Raynor, 9/14/2014 Buyer beware!! This saw will not cut any deeper than 3/8 in. It looks nice but useless.

    J. Powers, 5/15/2013 After two hours of filing this saw is working great.
  • Mine Don't Work

    John Powers, 4/19/2013 I bought this saw after reading these reviews. I am astonished. A man twice my size could not push that saw through a green, 9' log. I don't know what saw these reviewers are using.

  • The Best Saw Ever Used.

    Tony Lunnie, 8/3/2012 This saw is good to have along with other traditional tools. It is good for a back up saw and use at as an any time saw. This saw is well worth having.
  • Nice Saw

    Michael Keller, 7/12/2011 This is a nice saw. It is a hand (timber) saw so expect to work while using it but it feels good to be healthy. It is pretty handy when I can't or don't want to deal with a chain saw. I like it best when clearing 6-8 inch pines.
  • Trail Clearing

    Chris L, 11/30/2010 I am an active member of a horse trail riding club in New Hampshire and face the year round task of keeping the trails clear of fallen trees. I use this saw in all kinds of situations and what impresses my trail clearing crew is that I can cut through a 6 tree in the time it takes for them to get their chainsaw started. Also, I don't have to carry the weight of the saw, gas and accompanying tools. This is one of the best tools I have ever owned. I will agree with one of the other reviewers that a scabbard is needed."
  • Scabbard / Holster Needed

    Brian, 10/22/2010 A friend of mine has the saw and loves it. I tried it out this past week and loved it. It needs a sheath or scabbard for transporting it in a vehicle or over the shoulder for bringing it into the forest by trails. Is there one available?
  • Old Tech Rules

    Tom Cox, 3/22/2010 I walk into the neighboring woods with this saw, a rope and some WD-40, and find a dead tree (6 to 10-inches at the trunk) that has fallen due to wind or insect damage. My choice is limited to those that are hung up in the brush or their own branches, suspended in the air a few feet off the ground, and have had time to dry out. With a pocket knife, I determine where the good wood is. First, I cut the tree or branch into 6 - 8 foot pieces, short enough carry out of the woods with the length of rope. Then I cut them up on a home-made sawbuck, and split them to dry. This strategy has left me with enough wood to provide a strong supplement to the heat in our trailer through a record-cold winter in Tennessee, without having to put out big money for a load of firewood. I will continue this process all summer, to season next winter's supply. I am 60 years old, and no athlete, but, if I am patient, and keep the blade lubed to cut down on the sap binding, I can cut a 6-inch log through in less than a minute. There's no temperamental, two-cycle motor with its stink and buzz, no fuel or bar oil to worry about, and no high-speed cutting chain spinning within inches of my hands and legs. I can hear the birds, scolding squirrels, and the whisper of wind in the upper branches of the trees. This saw is comfortable to use, and cuts faster than I imagined any, man-powered saw could. It has the feel and appearance of a tool that will last a long time. Nicely done!
