The Yamabico has an extra row of teeth (with medium teeth) on the upper side of the blade. Without turning your wrist, you can make a sawing cut at the bottom of the branch so that the bark does not tear off when the branch falls.
Arborists who control this sawing technique will notice that sawing with this double-edged pull saw is less strenuous on the wrist. Due to the ergonomic design of the Yamabico, the development of the frequent occurring carpal tunnel syndrome is counteracted.
With the straight blade you can create a very precise sawing cut and easily handle the saw in densely grown spaces and close to the ground. The razor-sharp teeth will leave behind a smooth tree cut, so that the tree recovers well and quickly.
The rubber handle absorbs vibrations, offers grip and feels comfortable. You will notice that your lower arm and saw are perfectly balanced. The blade can be replaced within seconds by turning the rotary knob on the handle. No tools necessary.
The scabbard has a lock system, so that the saw will not fall out. As soon as you need the saw, you can pull it out of its scabbard easily with just one hand, by pressing your thumb on the button on the side. With the available leg straps you can strap the Yamabico to your lower leg to always have the saw at arm’s length.
Literally, Yamabico means the echoing sound in the mountains.
