Landrover Magazine

“We reach a fallen elder tree, which Neil is pleased about because it means he can test the Nordic Pocket Saw, a manual chainsaw he’s brought along. It quickly cuts through the small trunk and we despatch the tree on to the verge and continue to the A354.”


“This saw now lives in my Land Rover as I never know when I may come across a fallen tree.” (Mike Gormley, Joint-Forces).” Full article here“.

Field Tested: Nordic Pocket Saw. Expeditionportal. March 31st, 2017

“I have experimented with a few hand-powered chain saws and never found one I thought did the job well. Most have clunky chains with only one poorly shaped cutting tooth placed every few links. Those teeth are often too pronounced and while often sharp enough to chew through wood, are hard to get started or snag so badly I can’t maintain a fluid cutting motion…”
