Lightest 24" Buck Saw On The Planet
This is the MEGA Buck!
The success of the Little Buck and user requests led to the
development of the larger MEGA Buck saw. The MEGA buck uses the same cutting edge design as the Little Buck, but
has beefed-up structural tubes and components to handle the increased leverage forces in a larger saw. Amazingly,
it still comes in at just 7.85 oz. Add another 8 grams for the supplied windlass stick, or just use a sturdy
stick you find in the woods. Just try to find another 24" bow saw or buck saw that is not 3 to 6 times heavier.
The MEGA Buck Saw is capable of getting through 8-9 inch diameter timbers with no difficulty. It will appeal to folks who carry a larger saw for trail maintenance duties or other larger timber cutting. It comes with a fiberglass-reinforced tyvek pouch, and is generally going to be carried outside your pack, where it will be happy in a side pocket, tucked under a compression strap.
The saw uses three custom aluminum alloy tubes for the structural members, a very high quality European steel saw blade, and two loops of non-stretch Spectra cord for the tightening windlass (so that after assembly it does not loosen as you use it). It breaks down into a 24 by 2 inch bundle, assembles in less than a minute, and has no stray parts to lose. The saw blade works well for both green and dry wood.
The MEGA Buck price includes shipping in the USA. I recommend using the tyvek storage pouch that only weighs 16 grams. I will ship in a sturdy tube and include an illustrated owners manual. Spare wood saw blades can be added to your order here or on my Contact page. No bone saw blade is available for the Mega Buck.
Shipping outside the USA will add additional costs.
