Description
The Gomtaro is ideal for all pruning tasks. Suitable for cutting small branches, bamboo, carpentry, joinery and woodworking, bonsai and situations where a very smooth cut is required.

The tips of the teeth have been hardened to give an extremely long life to the sharpness of the saw. The blades are hollow ground to reduce friction and increase ease of cutting action and speed. The handle is made from Silkys special GOM material, giving superior grip and reduces vibrations.

The teeth are non-set and have a Mirai-Me design which creates a very smooth surface once timber is cut. The blades are made from a special material which is a high carbon steel and then have a special coating to reduce rust and protect the blade. The Zubat is a PULL saw.

All cutting occurs on the pull stroke. Put a minimal amount of pressure as you pull the blade toward yourself and then glide the saw forward. On the forward stroke the teeth will clear of timber or material and then on the pull stroke the saw will do the cutting again.

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.
