The Sugowaza means 'Amazing' is another great alternative to a fuel powered chainsaw. The Sugowaza is a modified Sugoi with a cross-guard designed for working in slippery conditions, to prevent the hand slipping on the blade. This is a heavy duty 420mm long curved hand saw. This saw has a safety guard to prevent the hand slipping down the blade, designed to cut large branches.
The Sugowaza 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. All parts of the saws are replaceable.
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 easy of cutting action and speed. The teeth are non-set and have a Mirai-Me design which creates a very smooth surface once timber is cut. 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 reducing vibrations.
