Product Description

Silky Pocketboy 170 Folding Saw, 6.75in, Yellow SKS34217

From the Manufacturer

Compact lightweight folding saw with 6-3/4-inch blade that will take up very little pocket or backpack. Nicknamed as �Little Giant� due to its extraordinary cutting capacity. This sleek saw features rust-resistant, hard chrome-plated, taper-ground blade with an impulse-hardened non-set tooth design for greater cutting efficiency. Utilizes proprietary Silky MIRAI-ME (Smooth Cutting) Technology – The Teeth of the Future! The precision-ground, razor-sharp teeth provide fast, clean and smooth cutting. The blade locks securely into one of two open positions, in line with the handle and flush cutting. The blade resists the effects of tree resin and easily wipes clean. The non-slip rubberized handle provides a sure and comfortable grip even in the most difficult operating conditions. Exceptional design, strength, balance and superior finish quality. Clear plastic flip-lock carrying case with belt clip is included. An ideal saw for your glove box or to carry on hikes. Made in Japan. POCKETBOY is available in two blade lengths: 5-inch (130 mm) and 6-3/4-inch (170 mm). The blades are interchangeable within the same blade length. Every blade length is available in four teeth sizes/configurations (tpi � teeth per inch): 7 tpi – Large/Coarse (pruning, green wood), 8.5 tpi – Medium (soft wood), 17 tpi – Fine (hard wood, bamboo), and 22 tpi – Extra Fine (dry hard wood). Each POCKETBOY has a color-coded handle associated with the teeth configuration: Red – Large teeth, Black – Medium teeth, Yellow – Fine teeth, and Purple – Extra Fine teeth.

Customer Reviews

So great, I’m buying 2 more today! ~ reviewed by Mary Clark

Fantastic saw…so handy! We use it all the time on our ranch. We’ve cut all kinds of small branches and even some not-so-small pine trees. Yes, trees…at least 5″ in diameter. We also use this on the trail when we come upon a branch or vines hanging across the path. Wouldn’t go out on the trail without this super-handy tool. Oh, and this saw has a comfortable grip and it’s still sharp after 3 years. I am ordering 2 more today to keep in the barn. Highly recommend this product.

Excellant for finish carpertry ~ reviewed by G. Robinson

This saw only cuts on the draw so it takes a little getting used to. It cuts a very small fine kerf and is suitable for any kind of finish carpentry. Saves me from getting out my jig saw for a few cuts. It doesn’t do curves or shapes but is great otherwise. Frankly I haven’t tried it on landscaping but don’t know why it would not work for light pruning and shaping.

Efficient at cutting limbs ~ reviewed by Road Island Red

I have used this saw several times and it cuts through limbs with little effort. I use it for creating Bonsai.

Great pruning saw ~ reviewed by T. L. Hill

I love this folding hand saw! It is very sharp and cuts through branches with ease. So far, it is staying sharp (over 2 years). The Silky is very well made. I tend to only buy Felco products, but this brand was recommended by my tree trimming company. I find this product to equally well made. It is really great!

Silky saw small teeth ~ reviewed by Ann

As a professional landscaper, I use these saws in pruning season. The ones with the small teeth work very well for big branches and the silky saws last forever.

Very Sharp. It cuts through old and fresh bamboo … ~ reviewed by Jan Arthur Schwartz

Very Sharp. It cuts through old and fresh bamboo smoothly and without tearing.

Outstanding keen edge saw ~ reviewed by James W Lee

This thing should be reclassified as a surgical instrument.
I now have 3 Silky saws and this one is by far the one with the most scarey sharp blade.
Its the fine tooth blade and holy cow is it sharp.
Something beyond sharp is a keen edge.
No doubt this one will find its way into most of my cutting chores.
Excellent quality saw and blade!!!

Great for trimming desert plants and handy for camping. ~ reviewed by lwp99

I bought this to trim old growth from Agave plants. It cuts through the tough skin very easily, greatly simplifying what had been a time consuming effort. I also keep one in my RV for camping trips where “landscaping” is occasionally necessary to clear out a campsite. It’s small and takes up very little room. Wish I’d found this years ago!

Unimpressive but it works for light duty pruning ~ reviewed by Robin Follette

You get what you pay for and this was inexpensive. The blade is flimsy and bows with little pressure. I’ll look for a heavier duty replacement blade. The carrying case is handy. If you need to prune a lot of trees this isn’t the hand saw you want but if you’re doing some light pruning on a few trees it will be fine.

awesome saw ~ reviewed by Snowman55

Best handsaw I owned (have a bunch of cheaper handsaws from the bigbox stores). Well constructed with durable materials.
Folds up in its own case; useful for car expeditions or bushcrafting.Buy it at Amazon
