A landscapers dream saw, the Gyokucho Sentei is a very fast, smooth cutting professional quality Japanese pullsaw with a nice long stroke for quickly and cleanly pruning and limbing larger trees.
The blade is taper ground and nickel plated for a silky smooth, almost frictionless cut. The large crosscut teeth are individually case hardened leaving the body of the tooth tough with an extremely hard cutting surface. The teeth are extremely sharp, producing a clean, almost planed surface that reduces the risk of the living tree becoming diseased. As well as reducing friction the nickel plating shrugs off resin and provides excellent corrosion protection.
The handle is forged from aluminium, overmoulded with a special textured plastic. Although incredibly light in weight, it feels solid, secure and purposeful and remains grippy even when wet.
The sheath is robust and well designed, the belt loop is wide enough to fit a safety harness (either clipped on or threaded through) and has a swivel mount so that it doesn't impede movement when climbing, squatting or bending. A touch lock mechanism prevents the saw from falling out but makes it easy to draw by simply extending your index finger when removing the saw from the sheath.
