This is a arched bladed hand saw. The idea behind the slight curve in the blade is to make the saw efficient when cutting on all angles. This is designed to cut medium to large branches.
The tips of the teeth have been hardened to give an extremely long life to the sharpness of the saw. The blades are hollow ground to reduce friction and increase easy of cutting action and speed. The teeth are non-set which gives the feeling of a resistant free cut. The blades are made from a material called SK4 which is a high carbon steel and then are coated in chrome to reduce rust and protect the blade.
The handle is made from Silkys special GOM material, giving superior grip and reducing vibrations. The Scabbard is designed to lock the saw in place so that it does not fall out. The Natanoko 2000 is a PULL saw. All cutting occurs on the pull stroke.
Put a minimal amount of pressure as you pull the blade toward yourself and then glide the saw forward. On the forward stroke the teeth will clear of timber or material and then on the pull stroke the saw will do the cutting again. All parts of the saws are replaceable.
The Natanoko 2000 comes with a scabbard that also has replaceable parts.
