Silky Saws



Manufactured in Ono Japan, Silky Saws homes the finest cutlery made using steel. Designing and engineering fine wood cutting saws since early 1900’s, the brand continues to raise bar for quality, endurance, and cutting efficiency that none can match. The brand has been leading in the industry in terms of both design and innovation. The saws by the brand are distributed in the USA and Central America by Sherrill, Inc.


The History

When saws were first invented, mankind took a great stride forward. However, not many changes were made in the design, not until 1919. Mr. Katsuji Miyawaki utilized his artisan spirit to create and produce the “TAMAKITSUNE” the original brand of Silky. He put his heart and soul in developing superior design saws. In 1970, the invention of the automatic saw setting machine brought in a significant revolution in the development of saws.


Using the machine, Silky created and patented a proprietary saw setting process in 1980. The “4-RESTUME” and the “MIRAIME2” saws were developed using this technology. In 1985, both “GOMATRO” and the “GOMBOY” were introduced and featured the first rubber clad handle. The design was awarded the coveted Japanese Good-Design prize and created an uproar in the industry. The “GOMBOY” has become the industry standard for building folding saws.


Even today, Silky Saws continues to dominate the market with its epoch-making designs. The company is currently headed by Uichi Miyawaki who inherited the company because of his mind, wisdom and entrepreneurial spirit and the passion to continue creating the best saws possible.


Silky Saws – The Result of Advanced Technology

The saws are designed and manufactured to the highest-quality standards currently available. The SILKY Saws boast laser-cut, impulse hardened blades for exceptional performance and longevity. Designed using the unique alloy steel, the saws exhibit harder and long-lasting edge, exceptional tensile strength and offers ideal combination of hardness and flexibility.


The process uses a special high frequency heating technique to heat and instantly harden the saws’ teeth. This localized heating process only hardens the teeth of the blade while the remaining blade remains unchanged and flexible. The hardened teeth are harder than the ordinary file and remain sharp for three times longer than non-hardened teeth.


Expect the saws to have rubber compound elastomer handles that are either inserted or vulcanized to ABS plastic or steel are comfortable to hold, reduce vibration, and other superior grip when the hands are wet or cold and when wearing gloves. These handles reduce fatigue and provide additional safety factor.
