This saw has a curved blade and large non-set teeth. Designed to be an alternative to a small chainsaw. The blade is 390mm long. The teeth on this saw have NOT been hardened to allow you to sharpen them, when needed. The blades are hollow ground to reduce friction and increase easy of cutting action and speed. The teeth are very large 5.5 teeth per inch, which means that you will cut a large amount of wood in one stroke. The blades are made from 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 reduces vibrations.
The Ibuki 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 Ibuki 390mm comes with a scabbard that also has replaceable parts.
