The F180 folding saw is a lightweight folding pocket saw aimed predominantly at the light pruning and gardening market.
The blade is 180mm long with a large tooth configuration of 7.5
teeth per 30mm. The blade locks in two positions to allow flush
The handle is constructed of fibreglass polypropylene with a rubber insert to ensure a comfortable and sure grip. It is an ideal cost-effective all-round folding saw that is always useful for all garden pruning tasks and outdoor projects.
It is not possible to sharpen the blade but the saws are designed to have replaceable blades. Other parts are also available. There is just one screw to unwind in order to change the blade.
Silky Saws are traditional Japanese pruning saws and as such
are designed to cut on the pull stroke. The blade
will be under tension on the cutting stroke and will not be able
Let the saw do the work.
Never force the blade on the push stroke as you will be pushing against the direction of the teeth. Carefully take the pressure off the blade in order to release the saw.
Generally you should experience fewer vibrations and use less effort enabling longer work and improved productivity.
The saw should be stored in the closed position and cleaned of any debris/dirt to ensure a smooth opening operation. Ideally the blade should be cleaned with a solvent being careful to keep it away from the handle – this will help prolong its useful life. Store away from moisture.
WARNING. NEVER CUT DIRECTLY ABOVE YOUR HEAD. Always consider where the falling branches will land on the ground. We strongly recommend the use of protective hard hats and glasses.
WARNING. Silky Saws are extremely sharp so please be careful when using and keep away from children.

Silky Saws are manufactured from SK-4 carbon steel and cut out by a laser. The teeth are designed with no set which means they are formed inside the width of the blade – this reduces friction and enables a cleaner, faster and easier cut. Many other saws have teeth formed to project outside the width of the blade requiring much greater effort when sawing.
There are 4 razor sharp cutting angles on the inside of each tooth. Silky call this ‘Mirai-Me’ and it enables the blade to cut smoothly through the branch, significantly reducing splintering and producing a very fine, smooth cut. The super fine cut destroys up to 50% less wood cells allowing the tree to heal faster and reduces the risk of disease.
The manufacturing process also uses the technique of high-frequency electro-impulse hardening during which the teeth are heated and hardened. Importantly, only the teeth are hardened, not the rest of the blade. Thus the blade retains its original flexibility whilst the teeth have a life which is up to 3 times longer than that on standard saws.
The blades are also chrome plated which helps protect against rust and sap as well as providing additional strength. This helps extend the life of the blade.
Almost all Silky saws are fitted with a specially designed rubber ‘Gom’ handle which reduces vibration and improves grip, reducing the danger of slipping in wet conditions.
