Silky saws are manufactured in Ono Japan, home of the
finest cutlery steel known to man. Crafting fine wood cutting saws since the
early 1900’s, Silky continues to raise the bar for quality, endurance and
cutting efficiency that none can match. Leading the industry in both design and
innovation, saw users are changing their language in all parts of the world
from merely asking for a saw, to asking for a Silky.
Welcome to Silky world!
The technology behind the Silky saw
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 special alloys used, the metalworking knowledge and the technical aspects of the different type of teeth configurations stand for a unique quality.
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.
Hard and wear resistant
The chemical composition of the metal in combination with the unique heating and cooling process determine the high hardness of the metal. The high carbon content leads to a high wear resistance, so that the sharpness remains for a very long time.
Soft and flexible
By forging the saws in such a way, the core of the saw tooth consists of soft metal with which the saw stays flexible and grabs the wood with ease.
Large and extra-large: 4 to 8 teeth per 30 mm.
Saws with large teeth saw faster and with more aggression.
The large configuration is developed for fast growing, fresh wood with a lot of
moisture in the wood cells. The extra-large configuration is especially ideal
for the tougher jobs, such as cutting down trees or sawing thick tree trunks.
When sawing in dry wood with (extra) large teeth, the teeth will have
difficulties grabbing the wood and will cause heavy vibrations.
Medium: 10 teeth per 30 mm
The medium teeth configuration is a real all-rounder.
Sawing with teeth configuration 10 is suited for both dead and fresh wood.
Fine and extra fine: 13 to 32 teeth per 30 mm
The fine teeth configuration is specially developed for dry wood or wood with less moisture in the wood cells, such as apple and oak. Extra fine teeth, such as 26 or 32, are specially designed for woodworkers as furniture makers or instrument builders. When sawing with (extra) fine teeth in fresh wood, the teeth will be filled very quickly.
