Silky blades being manufactured in UM:Kogyo's state-of-the art facility in the South of Japan.
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. They are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.Almost all Silky saws have rubber compound elastomer handles either inserted or vulcanized to ABS plastic or steel and are comfortable to hold, reduce vibration and offer superior grip when hands are wet or cold and when wearing gloves. The cutting performance of Silky Saws is unrivalled.
