The Silky Pro-sentei Dual Purpose Pruning Saw the front third of blade has fine teeth and the back two thirds of the blade with larger teeth with a nice overall length bridging the gap between the smaller Bahco folding saws and the larger Silky Pruning Saws I also sell. It has nice plastic Sheaf to protect the blade and allow you to attach it to your belt
Arthur & Strange Opinion
This is a great Pruning Saw with an very interesting added extra feature. Being a Straight blade it is designed for cutting mainly below the shoulder height compared to curved blades which are designed for above the shoulder height. At 240 mm long its a great addition to your Pruning Saw collection or a very good all rounder if you just want to buy one very good saw.
The blade has two different teeth profiles, the smaller fine teeth at the front of the blade allow you to use the saw on some quite small delicate work or for simply getting a good grove going without damaging the branch or the trunk. Once you have a decent grove to saw into the whole blade length can be used with the larger teeth at the back two thirds ripping thru the pruning cut like you would expect any Silky saw to do!
Such a clever idea that works easily in practice with the same quality and craftsmanship long associated with Silky Pruning Saws. A very good buy.
Your Silky Pro-sentei is a very sharp saw and it always advisable to wear gloves when using one, its also good practice to look after your saw for prolonged use.
Do not leave it out over night, always tap the saw dust out of the teeth, then clean with water before drying and lubricating with Wurth Ultra 2040. After cleaning & lubricaing keep it in its plastic sheaf to protect the teeth from damage.
When your blade does become blunt after many happy hours of pruning, I sell spare blades so you don’t have to replace the whole saw.
