Falling saws were used to fall trees. They are thinner from the tooth to the back than bucking saws. They have less metal than bucking saws and are therefore much more flexible and will bend much easier. The flexibility make them popular for horse packing and trail crews. Also, due to the thin saw, you can get a wedge in a cut sooner to prevent binding. However, due to their flexibility, they are harder to operate with one person. Western style saws are toothed to the end and will not accept loop style handles. Prices on these saws vary considerable depending on individual saw condition.
