GOMTARO - Professional


  • 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.
