Silky Technology

Silky Technology

​SILKY saws work on the pull stroke, minimising effort and providing a smooth clean cut, maximising tree health. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.

The blades are manufactured from carbon steel with either a hard chrome plating, electroless nickel plating, or the new black plating on the outback range, all of which produce a high durable surface and protects against rust and the effects of resin. The teeth are designed with no set which means they are formed inside the width of the blade, and this reduces friction and enables a cleaner, faster and easier cut.

Silky blades also have a 'Mirae-Me' technology, which means every tooth has 4 razor sharp angles, designed to leave a smooth surface with the finished cut.


​The Icons below describe the various features that make SIlky Saws so unique and high performing. Please view individual saw descriptions to determine which features relate to that specific model.

The blade is taper ground to reduce resistance giving a smoother, easier and faster cutting performance.

The blade has 4 cutting angles along its length and leaves a smooth surface after cutting, and can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.

Progressive Teeth provide an easier, smoother start to the cutting stroke followed by a high speed, super productive finish.

Silky blades cut in all directions for cross-cutting, rip-cutting and slant-cutting.

The teeth of the blades are heated instantly and hardened, and stay sharp about three (3) times longer than non-hardened teeth.

Because Impulse Hardening is not applied, the blades marked with this icon can be sharpened with a file.

Hard Chrome Plating produces an exceedingly high durable surface, and is resistant to rust and the effects of resin.

The new Electroless Nickel Plating coating process allows the entire blade, even the teeth, to be coated. This provides superior wear and rust resistance for improved cutting performance and extended blade life.

The new electroless Silky Black Plating allows the entire blade to be coated in a black protective finish. This provides excellent wear and rust resistance and reduces light reflections during hunting and stealth activities.

The rubber handle is comfortable to hold, reduces vibration and offers superior grip when your hands are wet or cold or when wearing gloves.

The non-slip rubberised gip absorbs vibration and directs more usable energy to the cutting edge and the screwless grip requires no tools for changing the blade.

Light and comfortable rubber grip with rigid aluminium chassis.

The Arbor Composite Grip provides warm and comfortable touch, excellent rigidity, and superior control in dry, wet, or game processing conditions.

The three (3) rollers provide a smoother action when inserting the saw in the sheath from any angle and the tri-roller system includes a locking mechanism that prevents the saw from accidentally falling out.


The guide below refers to the numbers of teeth per 30mm on a Silky Saw blade. Each Silky blade is defined as having "Extra Large Teeth" to "Extra Fine Teeth" and the icons below are designed to help you identify the teeth configuration of every Silky Saw and what you might need for your cutting or pruning project.

Typically, saws with Extra Large Teeth will be used in forestry or heavy duty arborist work. The teeth configuration will range between 3 and 7 teeth per 30mm and will give a very aggressive cut. In general however, you will still be surprised by the smoothness of the finished cut.

A saw with Large Teeth will be ideal for use in heavy/medium pruning tasks, root cutting, and construction. The number of teeth will range between 7 and 8 teeth per 30mm and an aggressive and smooth cut will be achieved.

Ideal for any pruning work or construction, a Medium Teeth configuration usually has around 10 teeth per 30mm and will give a much cleaner finish than larger teeth saws.

Fine Teeth saws are likely to be used for gardening and woodworking and the configuration is usually between 13 and 20 teeth per 30mm. These blades will achieve a very smooth and clean finish.

Extra Fine Teeth saws are ideal for woodworking and carpentry and the configuration will be between 20 and 32 teeth per 30mm. A very smooth finish can be expected from these blades.
