Arborists having discovered the Sugoi will make the conscious decision of leaving their chainsaw on the ground more often. Why carrying a heavy chainsaw if the job can be done just as fast and just as easy with this aggressive and powerful pull saw?

You work safer and more efficient with the Sugoi. Your reach is longer and that makes it easy to cut those extra couple branches. With the sharp sickle at the edge of the blade you can quickly cut smaller twigs and ivy. Moreover, the sickle helps the blade to stay in the kerf, giving you more control while sawing.

The ‘big’ tasks, such as the removal of trees is no problem for the Sugoi. The perfectly curved blade is made of a special metal alloy that makes the blade strong but flexible. The Sugoi saws quickly and without vibrations through the wood and leaves behind a smooth tree cut that will easily be overgrown.

The comfortable rubber-molded handle absorbs vibrations and offers lots of grip, even when wearing gloves and under wet and cold conditions. The yellow scabbard is well visible and can be attached to your harness or to your leg with the provided leg straps.

Sugoi literally means ‘exceptionally good’. Because of its aggressive teeth and orange stripes on the handle, arborists have given this saw the name ‘Tree tiger’.
The Sugoi is suited for pruning fresh wood, but also takes out dead branches easily. The Sugoi comes with a visible, polypropylene scabbard and two leg straps.

The scabbard has a detachable belt holder and rollers on the inside to prevent the teeth from damaging the case. The bottom part is equipped with a hole that drains moist and saw dust.

The blade must be kept clean to maintain its efficiency. Resin dissolves in olive oil, which is an effective and environmental friendly way to maintain the blade with. More aggressive liquids can damage the rubber material of the handle.

When not using the saw, make sure it is dry at all times. Store the saw in its scabbard in a dry place.



How to use

Silky saws are designed to cut on the pull stroke. At the first stroke you place the pull saw so that the teeth that are closest to the handle grab the wood first. After the first pull stroke you slide the saw back to the starting position by a soft push stroke (without force). During the pull stroke the thin blade will not bow because there is no lateral tension. The blade just follows the cut. If the saw ever becomes caught, never push hard or wrench, this may lead to lateral tensions which can damage or brake the blade. Always lift the weight off the blade to release the saw.

The Silky saw guarantees a fine kerf and requires little force. Do not burden. Like your grandfather always said: let the saw do the work. You will feel less tired and it lengthens the life of the saw. When you see the sign of impulse hardening the saw is impulse hardened and cannot be filed with the Silky file. You can recognize it by the black teeth tips, caused by impulse hardening. You can slightly control the wood loss by the place where you hold the handle:
  • Close to the blade: there is relatively little pressure on the blade. The saw will take the least wood, making you able to saw in a highly controlled manner and with precision.
  • Further from the blade: there is more pressure on the blade. The cutting action is maximum, but less precise.
Silky is not responsible for any damage caused by improper use.

Maintenance
  • Treat your saw with love. The blade must be kept clean, otherwise the cutting action will be lost. Resin dissolves in olive oil, which is an effective and environmental friendly way to maintain the blade with. Be aware that if you use more aggressive liquids it can damage the rubber material of the handle.
