NEW Gomboy now in a curved blade. Great multipurpose saw for all your gardening needs.

The Gomboy range of folding saws are the sizes in between the Pocketboy and Bigboy folding saws. The medium tooth Gomboys are particularly useful for general pruning, carrying in the rucksack, a survival saw and some carpentry situations where a quick smooth cut is required.

For the technically minded the features of the Gomboy are:
  • Hollow ground and taper ground blades
  • Special Silky steel with applied coating to help prevent rust and sap corrosion
  • Clear plastic hinged carrying case for storage and carrying is included (For the 210mm & 240mm ONLY)
Gomboy Folding saws are very easy to fit anywhere as the blade folds into the handle which, like all Silky Saws is a special Gom rubber formula that dampens vibration and helps you grip the saw even if it is wet and moist from perspiration or rain.

Silky Saws make a suitable saw for all purposes. Gomboys fit into that in between size for a folding saw.

How to use

Silky saws are designed to cut on the pull stroke. At the first stroke you place the pull saw so that the teeth that are closest to the handle grab the wood first. After the first pull stroke you slide the saw back to the starting position by a soft push stroke (without force). During the pull stroke the thin blade will not bow because there is no lateral tension. The blade just follows the cut. If the saw ever becomes caught, never push hard or wrench, this may lead to lateral tensions which can damage or brake the blade. Always lift the weight off the blade to release the saw.

The Silky saw guarantees a fine kerf and requires little force. Do not burden. Like your grandfather always said: let the saw do the work. You will feel less tired and it lengthens the life of the saw. When you see the sign of impulse hardening the saw is impulse hardened and cannot be filed with the Silky file. You can recognize it by the black teeth tips, caused by impulse hardening. You can slightly control the wood loss by the place where you hold the handle:
  • Close to the blade: there is relatively little pressure on the blade. The saw will take the least wood, making you able to saw in a highly controlled manner and with precision.
  • Further from the blade: there is more pressure on the blade. The cutting action is maximum, but less precise.
Silky is not responsible for any damage caused by improper use.

Maintenance
  • Treat your saw with love. The blade must be kept clean, otherwise the cutting action will be lost. Resin dissolves in olive oil, which is an effective and environmental friendly way to maintain the blade with. Be aware that if you use more aggressive liquids it can damage the rubber material of the handle.
  • When not using the saw, make sure it is dry at all times. Store the saw in its scabbard in a dry place.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
