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.
All Silky Saws feature laser-cut, impulse hardened blades for exceptional performance and incredibly long service life. Unique alloy steel engineered and produced exclusively for Silky Saws.
Using a special high frequency heating technique, teeth are heated instantly and hardened. Because of this localized heating process only the teeth of the blade are heated and hardened; the remainder of the blade is unchanged and still retains its normal flexibility. The hardened teeth are harder than an ordinary file and stay sharp about three times longer than non-hardened teeth.
The ergonomically designed handles are made from rubber compound elastomer either inserted or vulcanized to ABS plastic or steel are comfortable to hold, reduce vibration and offer superior grip when hands are wet or cold and when wearing gloves.
