Americas First and Only Chainsaw made for Carving

The finest detail saw you will ever use


The G3200 CV Carver Model Chainsaw Story

     In 2003, Brian Ruth was in Japan performing at Japans 3rd National Competition that he helped the chainsaw art club organize. He was also there teaching the art of chainsaw carving in the local community of Toei. He was presented a prototype chainsaw to use while he was in Japan. The saw was Zenoah Komatsu’s newest saw and as of yet still not available in the marketplace. The company’s only request in exchange for the saw was an honest assessment of the saws handling and performance.
     The saw was like nothing the carver had ever handled before. Not only did the saw walk the fine line between weight and power but its balance and handling made it easy to feel comfortable using almost immediately. Brian returned home to the US with a saw he would use daily throughout his summer tour.
      Returning to Japan in 2004, he was anxious to speak with Zenoah Komatsu representatives about the new little red saw. Knowing this company’s equipment is distributed in the US as RedMax, he asked when the saw would be available in the states.
The disappointing response was that they had no plans to introduce the saw to the US market. Brian knew the saw would be incredibly popular with the carving world and tried to convince the company reps that they would have an immediate audience with carvers. They did not budge on their position.
     He then traveled to Kawagoe to Zenoah Komatsu’s factory in order to meet with additional corporate officers. They agreed to set up a meeting in the US with RedMax corporate directors. A few months later, despite his best efforts to convince now both RedMax and Zenoah Komatsu that they could sell this saw to carvers, they remained steadfast in their position. As the meeting was concluding, Brian posed the question, “What if I were to sell this saw to carvers”? This seemed to be the solution to the problem for everyone.
     The original G3200 EZ saw was lightened by leaving off a couple homeowner bells and whistles that carvers would not need and set up with the highest quality carving bar and quarter pitch chain.
…..and so the G3200 CV carver model was born, as well as Chainsaw Masters International LLC., the corporation that sells the saw.
