This saw is designed for cutting builder’s timber. It has a tooth style which is very aggressive and will cut very quickly. It has a hollow-ground blade, which reduces friction when cutting. This also allows the cutting stroke to feel very easy and fast.
The teeth are set and are what Silky call a 4 Retsume tooth style. This saw has four rows of teeth which go through the timber with each stroke. 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 strong,high-quality steel. Although very strong, this steel is also quite flexible, which is important in a handsaw. The blades are also coated 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 is extremely comfortable to hold. It absorbs a lot of the vibrations you get when cutting and allows you to have a very good grip, even when your hands are damp. All parts are replaceable, so if you lose anything you can order replacement parts, i.e. screws, blades, handles, scabbards.
