The Silky Pocket Boy Folding Saws have four different colours for the different tooth sizes. The saws are designed to cut on the pull stroke. They have a hollow ground blade, which reduces friction when cutting. This allows the cutting stroke to feel very easy and fast.
This style of tooth creates a very smooth cut. This style of tooth also cuts a larger hole in the timber than the width of the blade, therefore reducing the chance of the blade jamming in the cut.
The blades are made out of a high carbon steel called SK4, this is a very strong steel but is also quite flexible. The blades are also coated in chrome to give them some protection from rust and resin.
The handles are made out of a special rubber designed by Silky Japan. It is called GOM and it is extremely comfortable to hold. It absorbs a lot of the vibrations you get when cutting, you still have a very good grip, even when your hands are damp. Everything on the Silky saws are replaceable. There are 4 tooth sizes in the Pocket Boy range and these blades are interchangeable with the handles. So if you would like this saw which is ideal for general and larger limb pruning, you could also purchase a replacement blade of the medium tooth which is ideal for carpentry and bamboo.
Pocket Boys are available in different tooth sizes, blade length and handle colours.
The handle colour is matched to the tooth size.
Red is for the large tooth. Black is for the medium tooth. Yellow/Blue is for the fine tooth and Purple is for the Extra Fine Tooth.
