made a few years ago, made from Birch, Oak, Walnut and Cherry. finished with Spar Varnish. simple to make, will last years.

hardware includes a 24” saw blade, 3/8” threaded rod with washers and thumbscrews.

I also made the pouches for each saw.

Nice. I have one that I made out of motorcycle crate wood. However mine lacks the elegance as it wasn’t sanded or finished.

Nice saws, and handy-dandy pouches. I assume as they are knock down & pouch tote that they are for camping? Pretty cool!

To answer some questions….

Joints are mortise & tenon

The pouches are made from leatherette

The saws are knockdown for camping, etc. it takes less than 1 minute to assemble the saw.

Thanks for the comments
