    Any stores in the Kansas City area carry the Bahco Laplander? I'd like to see one in person before buying.

    It's a good saw, I picked mine up off a Snap-on tool dealer in KC 6-7 years ago. I know Harry J Epstein's Tool Store in downtown carries the Opinel folding saw, which is a great saw as well, it is a bit smaller. Don't know any brick and mortar stores that carry the Laplander.

    And I just found out Opinel makes a larger folding saw, it has a 7 1/8" blade, looks pretty cool.

    I live in KC and I couldn't find any stocking retailers (definitely not cabelas or bass pro) while I was in the market for one. I ordered it online and it is a solid piece of kit. I personally prefer the corona saw, but the laplander is solid.

    Yeah, I was at Harry's the other week and they had both Opinel saws in stock. I think I'm going to pick up the NO.12 to tie my over until I get a Laplander. It's a shame Harry's is blowing out all their Bahco tools and don't have any Laplanders. If anyone else might know of a place in KC, please chime in.

    Yes, I can. I want to check it out in person. I'm trying to decide between this and the Corona but corona might be too bulky for my needs.

    Not to shift gears too much but i love seeing two Epstein's patrons on here. Jori's a bud and they're a living legend.

    I've never seen them for sale at any store in the KC area on either side of the state line. However I'll give a strong +1 to Epsteins.

    ETA: The laplander is a good saw. I got mine well used as part of a trade here last year and mine has held up nicely since with no blade replacement needed.

    I'm not here to judge anyone or tell anyone how to spend their money, but...

    Come on man, waiting almost 2 years to check out a $20 saw?
