Blade

This Silky Gomboy comes with a 210 mm (8.3”) blade. There are smaller and larger Silky saws available. The blade length you want depends on the diameter of the wood you want to cut. A rule of thumb is that the blade should be at least twice as long as the branch. Of course, the longer the blade, the faster the job gets done. So, bring along the biggest saw you want to carry.

This saw has Medium teeth, which are at their best for softwood. They can handle hardwood as well, but not with the same engineer-like precision as small teeth. They are nevertheless easier to control than the larger teeth and produce a cleaner finish. Medium is a very multifunctional tooth configuration, giving you sort of the best of both worlds. If you want to cut big trees and the coarse finish isn’t a problem, go with bigger. If you like even more accuracy and control, go with smaller.

The precision-ground teeth have four cutting surfaces each. Unlike classic Western saws, they are “non-set”, so the teeth don’t tear the wood, instead, they create a very fine and smooth saw cut. The clever design of the teeth has several advantages. You can saw faster with less power and the blade doesn’t get stuck in the wood that easily. The impulse-hardened teeth cannot be sharpened with a hand file but they last three times longer than non-treated teeth. If needed the saw blade can be easily replaced.

Materials

The saw blade is made from premium Japanese SK4 carbon steel. It has a high wear resistance so that the blade remains sharp for a long time. The core is softer, so the saw stays flexible. The chrome plating reduces friction and increases the lifetime of the blade. Furthermore, it protects the blade from rust.

The lightweight aluminum frame handle is rubber-coated. The rubber absorbs sawing vibrations and offers a good grip even when wet or while wearing gloves. Moreover, the handle feels reasonably warm, even in cold temperatures. The hole in the handle enables you to attach a carabiner or a lanyard to the saw.

Use

Because of its size and teeth configuration, this saw is ideally suited for longer hikes and regular sawing needs in the wild. Cutting poles for shelters, sticks for pot hangers, making firewood, etc. The Gomboy can easily handle wood that has gotten wet or was covered by a layer of snow for a long time. In case you need to clear away thick trees, go with a bigger one.

Unlike the western saws, Japanese saws cut on the pull stroke. Pulling keeps the blade straight, so the blade can be thinner without feeling wobbly. They are also easier to use because pulling is easier to control than pushing and they take less energy. In case you need to cut branches of a fallen tree while sitting in a canoe, better controllability is something you really want.

When not in use, clean your Gomboy of dirt and store it in the closed position in a dry place. The saw comes with a transparent hard case with a belt holder.

The best saw ive ever used, always with me when i am out in the woods for the past three years now.
chewing wood like nothing with one minor issue - the blade is thin and can break if you bend it too much (but the blades are replaceable and can be bought individually)
