It has a tooth style which will cut dense and sappy timbers with ease. It has a hollow-ground blade, which reduces friction when cutting. This allows the cutting stroke to feel very easy and fast. The teeth are non-set and are what Silky call a “Mirai-Me” tooth style. This style of tooth creates a very smooth cut which leaves the branch so smooth that it will appear as though it has been given a light sand.
The blades are made out of a high carbon steel called SK4. This is a very strong steel but is also quite flexible, which is very important in a hand saw. The blades are also coated in chrome to give them some protection from rust and resin.
