    I use a Fiskars with great success, and have heard great things about the Bahco Laplander as well. Both can be had around the $20 mark.

    I am primarily an axe/hatchet kinda guy, but it's quicker, quieter, and neater to use the saw. You can saw nice rounds from a log with flats on either side for splitting with the hatchet or batoning with knife. Either way, the wood can stand on the flats which is nice.

    I usually use the saw on heavy/thick bits, and then the hatchet for limbing, and splitting.

    Laplander is great. They weigh very little, and not expensive, and and just tear through wood. Opinel #12 saw is a very good choice if you want something more pocket sized.

    Oh the things you don't know.... They are an amazing pair!! I've beat the hell outta the 5. And it surprised everyone for a chopping contest. They really are amazing in the right hands, and can do way more than just kitchen duty.
