  • The SILKY GOMTARO is a beautifully balanced straight pruning saw with sheath available in 4 different varieties - large and fine teeth pruning saw, root cutting saw, and pro-sentei saw (both large and fine teeth on the same blade). 

    The Gomtaro Large and Fine teeth saws come in a range of lengths, designed to suit every pruning need. The fine teeth blade is also great for cutting bamboo.

    The Gomtaro Root Cutter is a beautifully balanced saw, and like all other Silky Saws uniquely combines a high performance blade with a comfortable and durable rubber handle. The chrome plated blade is specially hardened to deal with cutting roots in and around the dirt and ground. ​

    The Gomtaro Pro-Sentei saw is an innovative dual-purpose saw with both fine coarse teeth on one chrome-plated taper-ground blade with non-set impulse-hardened teeth configuration. The advanced designed special SKS-5 high-tech alloy steel blade provides significantly improved cutting efficiency and maintains superior wear resistant cutting edge. Excellent for cutting both small and large branches without having to reach for another saw. 

    When the cutting gets tough, the Gomtaro gets cutting! And with a great combination of the high performance blade and comfortable and durable sure-grip rubber handle that really sticks in your hands, this saw is ideal for all pruning tasks.

SILKY SAW 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 hard chrome plating produces an exceedingly hard, durable surface, the replaceable blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.

​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 relates to that specific model.

Mirai-Me Smooth Cutting
The teeth of the future! Silky blades have precision ground razor sharp teeth, with 4 cutting angles along their length. They leave an especially smooth surface after cutting and are ideal for pruning, greatly reducing the risk of infection. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
Non-Set Teeth
The blades are made from SK-4 high carbon steel and are taper ground (i.e. thicker at the tooth edge and thinner at the back of the blade). This taper reduces resistance giving smoother, easier, and faster cutting performance. 
Impluse Hardening
Using a special high frequency heating technique, teeth are heated instantly and hardened. Because only the teeth are heated, the blade retains its normal flexibility. Hardened teeth stay sharp about 3 times longer than non-hardened teeth.
Four Rows of Teeth
Silky Saw teeth are set in such a way that there appears to be 4 rows of them. These are rough cutting hand saws for heavier tasks. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
Hard Chrome Plating
Hard Chrome Plating produces an exceedingly hard and durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.
Sharpenable
Because impulse-hardening is not applied, the blades marked with this symbol can be sharpened with a file.
Hard Chrome Plating
Hard Chrome Plating produces an exceedingly hard and durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.
Rubber Handles
Almost all Silky Saws have rubber compound elastomer handles, either inserted or vulcanised to ABS plastic or steel. Rubber handles are more comfortable to hold, reduce vibration, and offer superior grip in the cold and wet.
