The Zübat is part of the basic equipment of every self-respecting arborist. Among arborists, it is undoubtedly the most widely-used handsaw in the world. Not surprisingly so, as the Zübat is everything you could wish for in a pruning saw. A versatile, powerful saw to be used during both precision pruning in tighter spaces and larger removals.
The perfect shape of the aggressively curved blade in combination with Silky’s unique teeth, will give you the speed, force and precision you need in the tree. You can easily leave your chainsaw on the ground more often, as this handsaw is an all-around pleasure to work with. Even after frequent use, the teeth will still stay sharp for a long time, leaving behind a smooth tree cut that will easily be overgrown.
The curved blade has a bigger abutting surface with the wood and gives a higher return in sawing above shoulder height and below the knees. You can still saw on top of the branch without having to reposition. The tip at the edge of the blade keeps the saw in the kerf, giving you more control. The blade runs through the handle, so that this stable saw is perfectly balanced. The rubber-molded handle lays comfortably in your hand and will absorb all vibrations.
The name Zübat derives from the sound that a Samurai sword makes when it hits its target. Users of this saw will know why.
