This saw is designed for wood working and pruning of small branches. It has a hollow ground blade, which reduces friction when cutting. This allows the cutting stroke to feel very easy and fast. The teeth are not set, they are what Silky call a Mirai-Me tooth style.
This style of tooth creates a very smooth cut which leaves the branch so smooth that it will appear as though it has been given a light sand. This benefits the tree by reducing the chance of water and bacteria sitting on groves in the timber therefore allowing infection into the wound. The blades are made out of a high carbon steel called SK4, this is a very strong steel but is also quite flexible, which is very important in a hand saw.
The blades are also coated in chrome to give them some protection from rust and resin. The Super Accel blade has two settings. The first is a standard saw blade angle, the second has the blade pointing into the air. This angle allows you to cut to a flat surface or enables you to have the handle away from branches that are slowing and inconveniencing your cutting. The handles are made out of a special rubber designed by Silky Japan. It is called GOM and it is extremely comfortable to hold. It absorbs a lot of the vibrations you get when cutting and allows you to have a very good grip, even when your hands are damp. All parts are replaceable, so if you loose anything you can order replacement parts, i.e. screws, blades, handles.
DONT FORGET, THESE ARE PULL SAWS SO DONT PUT PRESSURE ON THE PUSH STROKE.
