The Sugoi is a professional, heavy duty curved pruning saw for cutting large branches. It offers a genuine alternative to using a small chainsaw. The word ‘Sugoi’ actually means ‘Incredible’ in Japanese. The curved blade offers greater cutting speed with less effort while the aggressive tooth pattern is ideal for pruning larger branches. The Sugoi uses proprietary Mirai-Me (Smooth Cutting) Technology – ‘The teeth of the future!’
There are 2 blade sizes available – 360mm or 420mm, and the teeth ratio is relatively coarse with 6.5 teeth per 30mm.
The saw has a large grooved rubber handle which is comfortable to hold, reduces vibration and provides superior grip in wet and cold conditions. Every Sugoi comes with a custom made bright yellow 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. Sugoi 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 be 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.
Sugoi 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.
