In designing the Bonesaw, G3 got together with guides and avalanche professionals to see which features were useful and which ones were useless. After months of design and testing with skiers who spend 100 days in the backcountry each year, they've got it dialed. The G3 Bonesaw has become one of the most versatile snow saws available. This burly saw has offset teeth that can cut snow, ice, and even wood. It comes with a durable sheath for easy carrying. The best part is that with two included straps, you can attach this saw to just about anything. Strap it onto your ski pole, avie probe, shovel handle, long stick, or anything else that's at hand to increase your reach for cutting test pits and Rutschblocks. For easy snow safety research there are measurements on the blade aid in making consistent cuts for tests and there are three different grids for determining snow crystal size.
The G3 Bonesaw is a definitive backcountry ski tool designed with input from professionals. Sharp, packable, and easily attached to ski poles, ski tails, two-by-fours, or nearly anything else that could extend your reach. Fantastic tool for snowpits and Rutschblocks Also good for pruning on your favorite backcountry ski run. Judiciously used, of course Total length: 18 in (47 cm) Cutting length : 13.8 in (35 cm)
The G3 Bonesaw is streamlined, packable, lightweight, easily extendable and tough enough to cut through bone and ice.Any swarthy backcountry skier or mountaineer knows a good snow saw needs to have virtues that go beyond the snow pit walls. The utilitarian side of a worthy saw means that it can cut through not only snow, but ice, wood, and in the case of Genuine Guide Gear s latest strength factor, bone. So it should come as no surprise that G3 names its very capable, but streamlined snow tool, the Bonesaw.The Bonesaw was conceptualized from scores of guides and avalanche experts who wanted a high performance tool with a variety of applications. As a snow pit tool, the streamlined stainless steel Bonesaw uses offset serrated teeth that easily cut through snow and ice for consistent snow pit test dimensions. A laser etched ruler and snowflake-sizing grid allow for quick and accurate measurments. But the added benefit of the saw s design allows it to be easily extended for conducting snow pit tests like the Rutschblock, Propagation Saw Test and the Extended Column Test, which is quickly becoming the norm for qualifiable snow observations. Sold with two straps, the Bonesaw attaches to a ski pole or shovel in seconds, increasing the saw s reach exponentially.Outside the pit walls, the extendability goes a long way too, as it can be used to more safely cut cornices to further test a specific slope s stability. also, because of its ergonomic design and rubber coated handle the Bonesaw can be used to chop wood for a possible life-saving fire, or harvest blocks from your snow quarry when making igloos or walls to shield tents from wind when on expeditions.The flat, packable nature and light weight (5.9 oz.) make the Bonesaw easy enough to carry on a regular basis. Since G3 believes that being prepared is a large part of backcountry responsibility, the Bonesaw is a continuation in their commitment to making three-dimensional tools taht have genuine value when we need it most.
