FAQ (shipping, payments, return policy)

Pruning was never as much fun before as it is now! In case you are not used to sawing with a Silky pull saw, be aware of the razor sharp teeth that rapidly work through the wood. Even after frequent use, the teeth remain sharp for a very long time, so that time and time again a smooth tree cut will be left behind that the tree recovers well and quickly from. When not using the Pocketboy, the blade folds easily with the locking mechanism. The sharp teeth are safely covered as they are completely concealed in the handle. When the saw is needed, it can simply be unfolded thanks to the notch in the blade, even when wearing gloves.

 

The blade securely locks in two different positions with the locking mechanism. The rubber handle absorbs vibrations and offers a perfect grip. The Pocketboy feels comfortable in the hand, even after prolonged use. The hole in the handle offers the possibility of attaching a rope or carabiner to the saw. You could carry the Pocketboy on your belt in the transparent hard case it is standard delivered in, or choose for an appropriate rubber holster. This folding saw could also handily be stored away in a toolbox. The extraordinary cutting capacity of the Pocketboy has given this saw the nickname "Little Giant".

  • The blade must be kept clean to maintain its efficiency. Resin dissolves in olive oil, which is an effective and environmental friendly way to maintain the blade with. More aggressive liquids can damage the rubber material of the handle. When not using the saw, make sure it is dry at all times. Store the saw in a dry place, preferably in the hard case.

The technology behind the Silky has gathered almost 100 years of experience in the production of handsaws, always with the greatest devotion and according to the latest techniques. The saw blades of Silky saws are made from high-grade SK-4 carbon steel and cut out by laser. The blades are of unparalleled quality: they are very hard and longwearing, but remain flexible at the same time thanks to the metal’s soft core.
The chrome plating on the saw blade makes the surface of the blade extremely hard and longwearing, while reducing frictions and increasing the lifetime of the blade. Furthermore, the chrome plating protects the blade from rusting and resin. Before applying the chrome plating, Silky polishes the blade as smooth as silk. This makes that the blade encounters even less resistance in the wood while sawing.
The GOM rubber handle absorbs sawing vibrations and offers a superior grip, even in wet conditions or while wearing gloves. Moreover, this handle always feels comfortably warm, even in extremely cold temperatures.
The razor sharp teeth are grinded in the blade with precision, each with 4 cutting edges and an extremely smooth surface as a result. For an optimal discharge of saw dust, one of every so many teeth (depending on the saw model) has been ground to the outside. This unmatched patented Mirai-Me technology makes it possible to use the saw for three types of sawing: crosscutting (perpendicular to the grain), rip-cutting (parallel to the direction of the grain) and diagonally. During pruning activities the smooth saw cut will allow the tree wound to be overgrown easily. Within carpentry, the smooth saw cut gives a fine finish, so that sanding is hardly necessary.

The teeth are grinded in the blade with precision, each with 4 cutting surfaces. The teeth are “non-set” (in compare to a classic Western saw), so that the cutting surface cuts straight into the wood, and destroys about 50% less wood cells in the process. The blades are grinded biconcave: the bottom part of the blade (at the teeth) is thickest, the top part slightly thinner and the blade is thinnest in the middle. This design has several advantages:

  • Less power needed to saw: saw extremely fast
  • Discharges saw dust effortlessly: no getting stuck in the wood
  • Very clean saw cut: without breaking or tearing of the wood, it hardly splinters and creates a very fine, smooth saw cut.

The tips of the teeth are heated up to a very high temperature for a split second. As only the tip (or in other words the cutting part) of the tooth is heated, the rest of the tooth keeps its cutting quality but also its flexibility. Induction hardened teeth have a lifespan of three times that of non-treated teeth.
