Don Kevilus of Four Dog Stove has sold thousands, and likes these saws because he says you can open them with one hand. Why would a person open a bucksaw with one hand? He’d likely say something like an injured person in the woods appreciates a fire in the bush just like anyone else does. We don’t recommend one handed operation, but it is nice to know Don says you could…
The oak handle is the secret to the design, it provides a strong and repeatable cam action that keeps the blade quite tight in the aluminum frame. The saw’s designer and namesake, Bob Dustrude, passed away in 2018 but his family keeps the legacy alive, continuing to build the best bucksaws in the land here in the U.S.A. There are other bow saws out there, but none match the quality, portability, performance, and durability of the original Bob Dustrude Quick Buck Saw.
We stock all three sizes. The short 21” is great for compactness but is the tightest to get the blade set and cammed in place. It works well for small to medium size logs and sticks. The large 30” saw is most at home in the winter woods where larger fuel is necessary to keep a winter camp with a hot tent warm. You can cut a big log with the big saw. The medium spans the gap and offers plenty of portable cutting power.
The work of making firewood isn’t as bad of a job when you’ve got good tools to work with. Treat yourself well and use nice stuff. These Quick Buck Saws are a pleasure to use and will hold up for years of use in the field. The Sven Saws
are also nice and either pair well with our Council Tool Wood Craft Axes
and Hudson Bay Hatchets
