The Bahco 396 Laplander folding pruning saw is a favourite with many professional Forest School Practitioners, Bush Craft tutors and Beach Schools Practitioners.
Lightweight and comfortable in your hands, it features a folding blade with a special non-stick coating that helps it to glide through branches and small logs with surprising ease. Bahco’s special XT toothing allows the Laplander to cut in both directions, meaning that you are cutting on both the “push” and “pull” movements.
Only 23 cm (9 inches) long when folded, the saw is small and light enough to be taken in your emergency bag or personal toolkit. It performs excellently in the woods as well as on the beach, easily cutting through the toughest of woods, bone and many other materials. The Bahco Laplander Folding Pruning Saw has a thicker blade, with a friction reducing coating. It is best suited to general cutting along or across the grain. The high-quality Sandvik steel blade locks in place, to put away safely when you’re not using it.
