Does anyone know a good quality small folding saw with replacable/interchangable blades ?
Bahco folding saw.
I use mine alot and I have never needed to replace the blade, but it is possible with this saw.
I've got a Gerber Exchange-A-Blade Saw that came with a fine/bone blade and a coarse/wood blade, as well as a good cordura sheath. For $20, it's been a great deal.
Depending on your purpose:
These are Japanese saws, so they cut on the pull stroke. They are incredibly sharp and easy to use.
I have a Sharksaw (formerly Takagi) saw about 10" long that has two blades, one coarse and one fine. Rather than folding, they push out of the handle. It's not for heavy work because it isn't very rigid with the blade extended, but it works well enough for anything I've used it for. I can't find a picture, so it may be discontinued.
I have the Bahco as well and like it a lot. Don't discard the saw on a Sak, although it can't compare to the Bahco, it works well for its size and can be pocket carried "all" the time.
Spyderco makes a folding saw. It doesn't have changeable blades though.
It's Sypdersaw. It's awesome. I use mine all the time.
SOG makes an interesting combination knife and saw called the Revolver. I have the Hunter Revolver which has a gut hook on the blade. Saw is very aggressive and you have a good knife and saw with you. It is probably good for cutting up to 4-5" diameter log. Blade is not replaceable, but I don't know why you would want to replace it.
If you want replaceable blades, go with a bow saw with whatever size blade length is appropriate. As was said ,I believe Gerber makes a very small saw. Then there are the little plastic handled saws that you can buy at Walmart.
The only saw you need is a silky saw. Lots of options.
Impressive! Too bad no hacksaw.
I got a pruning saw from Home Hardware. It is like a huge switchblade and very sharp.
I've had my eye on this saw for a while.I thought it was a little pricey but it looks pretty versatile
Spydersaw from Spyderco!!!

heres a good saw,bahco Laplander,and fet other outdoor tools for comparison.
I use a Fiskars folding saw, similar in design to that saw third from the bottom in that photo. I've been happy with it's performance. I do most of my projects with handtools.
Ok... you will laugh at me... but I actually think that the little mini-saw in the Victorinox SAK is a very effective saw. Maybe I just got a particularly good one, but mine seems to zip through wood like nobody's business. At work, we had to cut some hockey sticks down to size (to fit individual requirements). I used my SAK saw, and I went head to head against a full size hack saw. I went through that shaft in about 30 seconds like I was using a lightsaber handily beating the hack saw. In field, I use my SAK saw for branches up to 1" and it works great. Quick, clean cuts. Minimal fatique.
I also have a Fiskars saw, but it's not a folding one. The blade slides in and out of the handle. Very aggressive teeth, and it works really well.
I like the Silky Pocketboy 130.
+1 on the Exchange-a-Blade from Gerber. VERY handy... but that probably goes for all of them ;D
I like the pocket saws from county comm and bestglide. They don't have exchangeable blades, but they are cheap and work well.
