The Sugowaza is a heavy duty curved pruning saw for cutting large branches. It offers a genuine alternative to using a small chainsaw – a little more effort but more peaceful, no fuel cost and much more rewarding! Sugowaza actually means ‘skills at a very high level’.
With its 420mm blade and coarse teeth (6.5 teeth per 30mm) it is one of Silky’s longest and most aggressive handsaws. Its ultra-fast cutting design will make light work of branches up to 300mm in diameter.
The handle includes a chrome finished slip guard for greater safety protection and a large grooved rubber handle which is comfortable to hold, reduces vibration and provides superior grip in wet and cold conditions. Every Sugowaza comes with a custom made bright orange scabbard with a ‘D’ ring attachment and slots for leg straps if required.
The saws are designed to have replaceable blades and all other parts are also available. Sugowaza blades can be re-sharpened for longer life.
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 to bow.
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 cleaned of any debris/dirt. 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.
Sugowaza blades can be re-sharpened for longer life.
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 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 blades are chrome plated which helps protect against rust and sap as well as providing additional strength. This helps extend the life of the blade. They are also tapered from the tooth tip to the back spine to reduce resistance and deliver smoother, easier and faster cutting performance.
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.
