    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Sven Folding Saw - 21" is rated 4.9167 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get better First I use this on kayak camping trips so within the kayak space is limited. I can't imagine a better saw for both performance and packable. If I were backpacking the 15 inch would be my pick. If you know how to saw wood then this saw eats woods. Remember the saw dose the work not you attempting to force the saw it through the wood; just let it work. Only tip like some have said carry a extra wing-nut. And the only thing I'd add to this would be a small magnate with magnetized wing-nut. Even without its a 5 star product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried all the others, this is the BEST! I have tried all the saws and have even made some of my own but none of these work like this saw. It is everything you want in a saw, lightweight, easy to pack, and eats through wood like no other! Don't waste your money on any other saw!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the weight! I consider myself a comfortable minimalist. The added weight to carry this backpacking concerned me at first but I really don't notice the difference. This is an amazing product. Cuts through just about everything. If you like a good campfire the way I do, do not hesitate to buy this saw!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and true most reliable field tool I have used this one same saw on over 200 campouts over the past 10 years and it has not only never failed me but continues to be my highest performing tool for harvesting firewood in the wilderness and preparing it for a campfire. The steel and treatment techniques by Sven are very durable, more than any other saw I have ever used in 40 years. It has remained sharp through allot of abuse and slices through 3-6 inch trees with ease. It takes me seconds to cut through large trees while my camping mates take many minutes and much more energy. I bring the 15" model on extended backpacking trips when I cam worried about ounces, but this 21" model is VERY lightweight in of itself. I highly recommend that you have one of these saws in your camping "toolbox".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best backpacking saw available I've had owned my 21" Sven Saw since 1987. It still has the original blade. I purchased a new blade four years ago, but still have not found the need to change blades. This saw is very compact, easy to assemble, rugged and cuts great. I've tried many other backpacking saws over the years including the Bahco Laplander, but I always go back to the Sven Saw. I find myself using it around my home a lot as well for limbing trees and general property maintenance. When backpacking I carry a Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe for splitting wood for the fire, but I always have my Sven Saw with me to process dead logs into campfire lengths quickly and effciently. I would highly recommend this saw to anyone who wants a reliable, well-made tool that will last a lifetime.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT I made the purchase to saw up several 6-8 inch logs. Worked great. As far as folding saws go, I don't think you can do any better. I also have the 15 inch for backpacking. Like that one too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded My Expectations! In short, this saw is light and efficient, a no brainier for me if it would work well. I decided to give it a chance though it looked a little too light and flimsy to me initially. I tried it out on an overnight backpacking trip and it worked so well I'm recommending it to everyone. (Also, it worked well especially considering I misplaced the nut and screw which keep it together so I used just the blade without anything else very carefully but still cut through 4" logs in less than 45 seconds and very, very minimal effort on my part.). Fire is important to have when backpacking in cold weather (been in the 20's on the last couple trips) and I'd rather conserve my energy for the trip instead of hacking away with a camp axe just cause it's cooler. I don't write reviews often but the company who made this deserves props for making a product that I am raving about. Hope you enjoy it cause it's totally worth the price and more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camp Saw Used this saw on eleven day camping vacation in Sierra Nevada Mountains at nine different campsites. Saw was very packable, light, and easy to assemble. The blade is very sharp and would quickly and easily cut through wood six and half inches in diameter. Also used saw around house to cut limbs for firewood.
