KATANABOY - Professional

403-50

  • 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 Katanaboy 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.
