POCKETBOY 170 - Folding Pruning Saw
Compact lightweight folding saw with an extraordinary cutting capacity that will take up very little pocket or backpack. Well known as “Little Giant” by gardeners, hikers and campers. This slick saw features rust-resistant, hard chrome-plated, taper-ground blade with an impulse-hardened non-set tooth design for greater cutting efficiency. The precision ground, razor sharp teeth provide fast, clean and smooth cutting. The blade locks securely into one of two open positions, in line with the handle and flush cutting. The blade resists the effects of tree resin and easily wipes clean. The rubber handle provides a sure, comfortable grip in the most difficult of conditions. Plastic flip-lock carrying case with belt clip included. An ideal saw for your glove box or to carry on hikes.
Non-set Teeth – Blades are made from SK-4 high carbon steel and are taper ground, that means they are thicker at the tooth edge, thinner at the back of the blade. This taper reduces resistance giving smoother, easier, faster cutting performance.
Mirai-Me Smooth Cutting – The teeth of the future! Blades have precision ground, razor sharp teeth with 4 cutting angles along their length. They leave an especially smooth surface after cutting and are ideal for pruning, greatly reducing the risk of infection. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
Impulse Hardening – Using a special high frequency heating technique, teeth are heated instantly and hardened. Because of this localized heating process only the teeth of the blade are heated and hardened. The remainder of the blade is unchanged and still retains its normal flexibility. The hardened teeth are harder than an ordinary file and stay sharp about three times longer than non-hardened teeth.
Hard Chrome Plating – Hard chrome plating produces an exceedingly hard, durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin. They are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.
Rubber Handle – Almost all Silky saws have rubber compound elastomer handles either inserted or vulcanized to ABS plastic or steel are comfortable to hold, reduce vibration and offer superior grip when hands are wet or cold and when wearing gloves.
Four Rows of Teeth – The teeth are set in such a way that there appears to be 4 rows of them. These are rough cutting hand saws for heavier tasks. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
