The tips of the teeth have been hardened to give an extremely long life to the sharpness of the saw. The blades are hollow-ground to reduce friction and increase ease of cutting action and speed. The handle is made from Silky’s special GOM material, giving superior grip and a reduction in vibrations. The teeth are non-set and have a Mirai-Me design which creates a very smooth surface once the timber is cut. The blades are made from a special material which is a high carbon steel and have been given a special coating in order to reduce rust and protect the blade.
The Zubat is a PULL saw. All cutting occurs on the pull stroke. Use 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 available and replaceable. All Zubats come with a scabbard that has a belt attachment and attachment loops for leg straps. Leg straps are available separately in the parts section (Code 506-04-14)
