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 pull 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.
When working above shoulder height and below the knees, you can still saw on top of the branch with a curved blade, while your arm, wrist and hand remain in its natural position. This makes you work efficiently, even in the most difficult circumstances. The tip at the edge of the blade keeps the saw in the kerf, giving you more control. The blade is full tang, 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.

The blade must be kept clean to maintain its efficiency. Resin dissolves in olive oil, which is an effective and environmental friendly way to maintain the blade with. More aggressive liquids can damage the rubber material of the handle.
When not using the saw, make sure it is dry at all times. Store the saw in its scabbard in a dry place.
