The Ray Mears Folding Buck Saw is a classic bushcraft tool that has been resurrected by Ray Mears and his good friend Chris Boyton. Some of you will no doubt be aware of Chris' superb craftsmanship via his renowned wooden bows, and that same experience and attention to detail has been applied here.

Beautifully hand-crafted in European beech by British bow-maker Chris Boyton, the Buck Saw comes tastefully embossed with the RM 'snowshoe' and Boyton
Archery logos, and is fitted with a high quality Bahco Raker Tooth Blade
