It is perfect for chopping trees DOWN and cutting them up rather than just pruning them. The angled neck gives a great cutting position that whistles through trunks and branches.
The extremely long blade cut faster as you get more back and forth movement, and is suitable for really quite large branches.
This saw has extra large non set teeth. It is designed to be an alternative to a small chainsaw. 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 not set which means that the teeth will glide easily thought all timbers. 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 reduces vibrations. The handles are designed to be used with two hands. The Genki-Temagari 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.
