ØYO Butchering Saw

The Norwegian tool manufacturer ØYO has a history reaching back to the year 1882. In their product portfolio you can find tools like; knives, axes and saws. The ØYO Butchering Saw is one of the test objects in my latest field test on folding saws. As this test focus on cutting dry and fresh wood this saw unfortunately ended up low in score. The ØYO Butchering Saw had the most fine toothed blade of all the test's saws. This saw's teeth pattern is best suited for cutting harder materials such as bone while taking care of the game. To see my latest field test on folding saws; click HERE.

The saw's design is very similar to a regular lock back folding knife's. The handle consists of a steel frame covered by plastic scales with rubber inlays, hold together by torx screws. The handle has no hole for a lanyard and the lock only fix the blade when unfolded. There is a small vertical play to the blade in locked position, but this is nothing that bothers me.

I like this saw's smooth design and nice pocket carrying feel. The saw is though relatively heavy considering it's size. Unfortunately this is not a saw I would bring on a trip if I need a allround saw. But the ØYO Butchering Saw is a good help when processing the meat after hunting.
