Let's Start with PERFORMANCE


The BOREAL21™ is a revolutionary 21 in / 53.3 cm folding bow saw that effortlessly unfolds in seconds for easy, high performance cuts.  At 21inches, the blade's length is optimally sized for powerful sawing strokes, and yet short enough for packability.  And the 3 hinged trapezium-shaped frame allows large diameter cuts.  The blade safely fold into the frame when not in use, protecting you and your gear.
