This saw is designed for general pruning of medium to large branches. It has a tooth style which will cut dense and sappy timbers with ease. It has a hollow ground blade, which reduces friction when cutting. This allows the cutting stroke to feel very easy and fast.
The teeth taper in thickness, larger at the handle and smaller at the tip. This style of tooth also cuts a larger kerf in the timber than the thickness of the blade, therefore reducing the chance of the blade jamming in the cut.
The blades are made from a high carbon steel called SK4, this is a very strong steel but is also quite flexible, which is very important in a hand saw. The blades are also coated in chrome to give them some protection from rust and resin.
