A special edition within the Gomtaro family. The Gomtaro Root has been exclusively designed for pruning activities in rough circumstances.
This pull saw is a must have when pruning tree roots, e.g. while transplanting or removing trees and shrubs, to restrain too fast growing trees, or to whittle down that one tedious tree that grows too close to the fence. While digging out a tree, you often come across roots too thick to stab through with a spade. With the Gomtaro Root there are no obstacles anymore!
Due to the double teeth hardening, the Gomtaro Root has a very high abrasion resistance, even during frequent use in sandy environments. As the blade is full tang, this saw will feel exceptionally stable. The rubber casted handle feels comfortable and absorbs vibrations. You will notice that your lower arm and the saw are perfectly balanced.
The scabbard is designed in such a way so that the saw cannot fall out of it, but can still be pulled with just one hand when needed. With the available leg straps you can strap the Gomtaro Root to your lower leg to always have the saw at arm’s length.

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.
