I did try it at the Woodwoking in America convention. Granted, it was just a test drive, but I was impressed with it. The handle is very comfortable, and it cut very nicely. If anything, I think that the LV handle may actually be MORE comfortable than the LN. The main difference between it and the LN (which I own) is that back is made of a fiberglass/stainless steel powder/polymer binder. Heft, balance, and speed of cutting seem pretty close to me.

In general, I’ve found that LV tools tend to be less expensive than LN (not cheaper!). LV also seems to like to try new things, whereas LN sticks with tried and true.

Either one would be an excellent saw. I might well have bought the LV if I didn’t already own the LN.
