Who we are
We are a family-run company, and have been since the beginning in 1961. Our goal is to make the best possible folding saw, as sustainably as possible, for as long as possible. If we can no longer do that, we will stop. We do not intend to take over the world.
We’ve been making the Sven-Saw ® in Minnesota, USA continuously since Richard Swenson invented it in 1961! We use all local manufacturers. The saws are assembled and shipped from Opportunity Partners, which provides employment to people with disabilities. The only part not made in Minnesota is the blade. Our blades are made of the finest Swedish steel and crafted in Sweden.
