    The SILKY KATANABOY is a two-handed, professional, heavy-duty folding saw available in a 500mm, 650mm or 1000mm blade - and it can easily compete with a chainsaw! Compared with the Katana, the legendary Japanese samurai sword, it is the largest folding saw on the market today. The long, well-balanced, taper-ground blade with an impulse-hardened, non-set tooth design provides extended working reach, faster cutting and handles large limbs and trunks with no effort. The non-slip, two-handed, rubberized cushioned handle provides a sure and comfortable grip even in the most difficult operating conditions. Suitable for serious tasks like cutting large timber and tree trunks. Exceptional design, strength, balance and superior finish quality. Comes with a sturdy nylon shoulder bag with Velcro fastening and a pocket for replacement blades.

    *The 1000mm saw has progressive teeth (2.5 - 5 teeth per 30mm), which provide an easier, smoother start to the cutting stroke followed by a high speed, super productive finish.

Thank you very much

I'm pretty impressed it's like a chainsaw cuts through wood easily I'll have to the smaller one later

Good for trail work

I have had one for 5 years doing volunteer trail work. The Velcro on the carry case no longer holds and the top of the saw has worn through one layer of the case's top flap. Rust resistant? If I put it away after cutting wet wood without drying and oiling the blade it rusts. A very expensive saw but a great carry tool for trail work. I have a replacement blade since I have sharpened the original blade 5 times and it no longer cuts quite like new.

Hi Michael. Thanks so much for the review. It sounds like you've put the Katanaboy through its paces over the last 5 years for sure. Can I please however explain that Silky blades are made from high quality carbon steel and are coated with a protective layer. And while the benefits of carbon steel offer greater strength, hardness, and wear-resistance, they are still susceptible to rusting if not properly treated or maintained. To prevent corrosion from occurring on high-carbon steel surfaces, you do need to regularly clean, and dry, the blades before putting the saw away between use. Oiling your blades after cleaning them will also help to reduce the risk of rust. Hope that helps a bit, and hopefully you'll get many more years out of your Katanaboy...

Thanks to Silkystore for getting my order to me promptly! This Katanaboy 500 saw is a bucking feauty! A really nice saw, it's cuts look like they've been sanded smooth with 320 sandpaper. I'm in my 60's and are very pleased with it, it is something to treasure.
