For lightweight backpacking, I use this:



With a makeshift sheath:



I took a Skil pruning blade for a reciprocating saw (very tough, I've used them on recipro saws for years) and attached it to a plastic hacksaw handle I had laying around. I "fabricated" a small metal bracket to capture as much of the handle plastic as was practical and ran a small bolt through it and the blade. The blade doesn't wiggle at all in the handle and it seems to be pretty strong over all. I've used it quite a bit now. Its a very aggressive blade and cuts much faster than any of the folding backpacking saws that I've tried. The blade sticks out about 8" past the handle. Some are using recipro blades with vise grips as a handle, another option that adds vice grips to your pack but is not quite as secure and adds weight.

Like I said, I made this is for lightweight backpacking stuff and it does the job.
