Silky Saw is the best-selling professional, heavy-duty, curved-blade hand saw suitable for all pruning tasks and cutting large branches. A soft, rubber handle holds the high-performance curved, fast-cutting blade that fits securely inside its custom-fitted scabbard with detach- able belt holder – curved blade means greater cutting speed with less effort. The hard chrome-plated blade has 6-1/3 tpi, resists rust and the effects of tree resin, and wipes clean easily. Silky saws are available at dealers nation-wide.
