After trying for a week or so to get through to the Sven-Saw people to get some more info on the brand, I finally got a call back from the founder, Mr. Svenson, who proceeded to talk my ear off about the first Sven-Saw he sold to REI many, many years ago. He was a wonderful man who makes a pretty darn great product, a fixture at many of the AT lean-tos you’ll stay at along the trail. If you haven’t heard of Duluth, MN’s collapsable saw, go to the Sven-Saw website and find out very little more info. It’s a ghost town over there, I tell you what..
More on that conversation to come.
