Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews on the best bow saws for cutting trees, that are currently available on the United Kingdom marketplace.
A bow saw is a hand saw that is used mainly in the forestry industry, and is designed for cutting trees and lumber. It gets its name as it is shaped like a bow as you can see in the image above.
The frame is made from metal, and attached to that will be a long straight blade with wide teeth for cutting through wood quickly.
Typical uses are for felling trees and making logs for firewood. Its main advantages are that it cuts in both directions, so usually works better with a person at either end, and as such it cuts very quickly.

- This saw is light but very strong. Its a lovely saw to use
This saw is the most expensive of the 5 but it's well worth the extra money. A saw is not something you want a cheap model of and these bandsaws are no different. At around £20 this Bacho model is the best and I think you are getting very good value for your money.

This Stanley model is a very rare combination of cheap and good. That's pretty hard to find but here we are. If you cut the occassional tree or need a bow saw now and again, then this is a good model to go for. It's not built for everday or heavy duty work but does a good job when called on.

These bow saws are not that expensive and they can be a handy saw to have if you have a larger garden. Certainly if you have a garden with trees, or you buy in logs and branches on a regular basis.
We recommend that you buy a Bow Saw that has a hand guard and a cover for safety. Most of these saws are very similar and the biggest complain we have found is in the durability. Some just don't last.
All the models shown here are tried and tested. They will last the test of time. Keep in mind that a broken or blunt saw can be extremely dangerous so always buy a good quality product and make sure its kept in good condition.
