I previously had the BCA saw but needed one that can extend in order to cut the back of extended column tests. This is a great tool - really well made. The sheath is well made and makes carrying in my avy tool pack pocket much easier - and safer. After seeing my Avy 2 instructor dig pits in 10 minutes with one of these, I was sold.
This saw is a nice addition to my bc gear, and snow study kit. It attaches easily to the pole, is very sharp and cuts through firm snow like it was butter. It is really sturdy and lightweight, and takes up almost no room in the pack. Really happy with it so far, highly recommended, especially if you're using bd poles.
This is a great snow saw for cutting columns for doing snow pit tests. It can also cut through wood and other materials if needed. It has a 30cm mark for you know how big to cut your columns. You can attach this to your Black diamond Flick lock poles, for doing extended column tests. A great product.
cuts through snow pretty well (not that its difficult) and the attachment to BD ski poles is genius for a myriad of snow tests. My only complaint is that the handle is a bit thicker, and when used with the pole it doesn't leave a nice clean cut, there probably isn't a way around that though.
Little finicky in attaching to my ski pole but gets the job done. Clean cuts and measurements provide the information and tool I need for digging pits and looking savage.
I like how this fits perfectly in my float 22 bca bag. It comes with a nice case and is convenient how it attaches to my black diamond pole.
Nice saw, sharp, nice case, good product
On my Black Diamond Expedition poles the saw attaches only to the bottom part of the poles, making it way to short is deep snow to cut columns. It is a sturdy saw, and the sheath is very nice as well. Cuts the crap outta ice and hardpack.BD, please fix the attachment issue so i can use 2/3rd of my pole, not 1/3rd of it and I will give you 5 out of 5!
