Silky Saw

Silky Saw

  • Silky saws are designed to prune and cut branches out of reach. Made of authentic rolled out Japanese steel and is laser cut.
  • The blades are made of hardened steel but remain flexible, soft, and resistant to rust due to weather changes.
  • It has a telescopic reach of 3 meters.
  • Mainly used by arborists after winter to cut and allow new vegetation to grow.
  • Very useful for hard to reach places.
Always return all tools clean please. Do not cut on the forward or push stroke. Do not push hard. If the branch moves during cutting, the blade may flex and bend or break. Replacement blades are available. Do not press down hard. Heavy pressure is not necessary and the teeth will only jam in the wood fiber and may break. Remember correct pruning techniques are important. With larger branches, always undercut first. If your saw ever does become caught in a branch squeeze, always take the weight off the blade to free the saw. Never wrench the handle from side to side hoping to release the blade. It may break! caring for your silky saw. Silky saws cut exceedingly fast and efficiently. Taper ground blades reduce friction and binding and hard chrome plating resists rust and resin. Wash your blade regularly with warm soapy water to remove resin deposits. Build-up of resin will make it harder and slower to cut and if additional force is applied during cutting, bending or breakage may result. Always keep your blade clean for optimal cutting performance. To get the best from your silky saw, use the teeth, not your strength and apply gently power. To the pull stroke. Let the saw do the work. Silky saws cut as you pull the blade towards you. Silky saws are designed to cut on the pull stroke. The thin blades will not bow because they are under tension while being pulled across the surface to be cut. If your saw ever becomes caught in a branch squeeze, do not push hard and never wrench the handle. These actions may damage the blade. Always lift the weight off the blade to release the saw. Silky's precision engineering results in a fine kerf, very little force is needed to saw. So, do not use muscle to speed up your sawing. Let the saw do the work for you while you pull it across the wood. Impulse hardened blades (insert the sign of impulse hardening) cannot be re-sharpened by a hand file. Keep your blades clean by using a solvent. Keep the solvent away from the handle. When not in use, store the saw in a protective sheath and away from moisture. Keep out of reach of children.
