Tsurugi Hand Saw

The Silky Tsurugi range introduces a straight saw with a very narrow blade which is ideal for pruning dense trees and enables the user to get into tight areas such as the fork of a branch. Due to Silky’s renowned design skills there is no compromise to either the strength of the blade or its cutting ability. Tsurugi actually means ‘long sword’ in English.
The Tsurugi Large Teeth can be identified by its red handle The tooth configuration is a slightly more aggressive cut at 8 teeth per 30mm for a smooth finish when cutting dryer and/or harder wood.
- Silky Saws are manufactured from SK-4 carbon steel and cut out by 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 \'Mirae-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.
