Customer Reviews of Black Diamond Snow Saw Pro
In summary, long reach without extra extension, built in sheath (locks in closed position), combined snow/ice/wood blade rather than snow/ice only.Recommended.
When checking the web before buying I found that there appears to have been a redesign in the locking mechanism, which has changed from a thumb lever, to a central push button at the pivot point.The pictures above are the newer version with the central button.The locking seems effective, but there is about a 5mm movement at the tip of the saw when locked.This would be no issue at all when cutting snow/ice, but maybe noticeable when cutting wood.
The bronze/orange adapter is the perfect size to work with the G3 Via Carbon ski pole.However, I found that the bolt which attaches the adapter bottomed out before it was tight, leaving the adapter slightly loose to rattle.I solved this with a small rubber grommet around the bolt, so I now have a solid connection.
The saw may seem heavy at 253g, but it includes its own built in sheath, so it is effectively the same weight as the apparently much lighter G3 Bone Saw, once the G3 sheath is taken into account.
