when backpacking all I ever need as a saw is whats on whichever SAK I'm carrying, but for other use the silkys are quite good. You really have to consider what sort of weight you are willing to carry. they are robust, but that steel handle comes at a cost.
I have a Laplander and a Silky (forget what model) but also a cheap little pocket-sized UST saw for my hiking pack and a flimsy Mossy Oak two-blade saw that I bought at a small-town discount store when nothing else was available while on a trip. It has actually proven to be quite decent for camping.
I'll probably regret it, but I just bought an Old Timer lockback knife/saw combo on clearance, and may start bringing that as a camping spare.
I have had many and my favorite are Silky Saws. I did use an Opinel #18 last hunting season and liked the lighter weight compared to my comparable sized Silky Saw. Both are pull cut saws which are not for everyone. The Bahco Laplander is a good value (paid around 20 shipped) but does not perform as well as the Silky or the Opinel IMO.
