A Silky saw is not just a saw
Silky saws are available for a wide range of applications. The tree climber, furniture maker, roofer, gardener, carpenter, installer, parqetteur, demolisher or private individual will always be able to find the right saw. Moreover, every user recognizes the extremely fine cut and the smooth work with these Japanese saws. Working with a Silky saw is less labour-intensive, resulting in a higher yield. Little force is required to get through the wood. The teeth remain sharp for longer, and because of the low vibration caused by sawing, working with Silky feels much more pleasant than working with other saws. Silky pruning saws damage 50% less wood cells, resulting in a faster pruning recovery and less risk of mould formation.
