Silky Saws Pocket Boy Folding Saw is a great little saw for carvers. Compact and versatile, this saw is often used for jobs a much bigger saw would normally take on.
Pocket Boys come in a perspex carry case that can be easily clipped to your belt or a carabiner clip.
The Silky Pocket Boy Folding Saws have four different colours for the different tooth sizes - we stock 3 of these suitable for carvers...
Fine Tooth: Great for stop cuts and seasoned timber or hardwood.
Medium Tooth: A great general purpose, can cope with small branches and okay with large ones too.
Large Tooth: this size tooth is ideal of large branches and sappy green wood
The saws are designed to cut on the pull stroke. They have a hollow ground blade, which reduces friction when cutting. This allows the cutting stroke to feel very easy and fast.
The teeth taper in thickness from large at the handle to small at the tip. The style of tooth also cuts a larger hole than the width of the blade reducing the change of the blade getting jammed in the cut. The blades are made out of a high carbon SK4 steel which is both strong and flexible. The saw also features a rust-resistant, hard chrome-plated blade to provide fast, clean, and an extremely smooth cutting action.
Pocket Boy folding saws have two settings on the blade. The first is a standard saw blade angle, the second has the blade pointing into the air. This angle allows you to cut to a flat surface or enables you to have the handle away from branches that are slowing and inconveniencing your cutting.
The handles are made out of a special award winning rubber called GOM which makes it comfortable to hold. The rubber handle acts to absorb alot of the vibrations you get when cutting and allows for a good grip even when wet.
Everything on the Silky saws are replaceable. There are 4 tooth sizes in the Pocket Boy range and these blades are interchangeable with the handles. So if you would like this saw which is ideal for general and larger limb pruning, you could also purchase a replacement blade of the medium tooth which is ideal for carpentry and bamboo.
