    Really liked some of my past hand saws but these Silkys take the cake. They only cut on the back stroke but damn do they go thru wood like butter. Wish I'd have bought one of these 20 years ago. [​IMG]

    I think its solid, but these saws are designed to cut on the pull so maybe it would bend if you tried to push cut? Sharpest hand saw I've ever held.

    Silky Zubat is a non foldable one but my favorite saw ever. Unreal how well they cut.

    Yeah great for work but not conducive to putting in a pack

    I bought a Silky this year and agree they are fantastic.

    I have a Wicked Tree saw and it a tough bugger but its work to saw a bigger limb. I’ve looked at Silkys Saws but haven’t pulled the trigger....... next year

    Same here. Wicked is a good saw also, I just felt the need to change SOMETHING up and this was it. I'm shocked at how sharp the Silky is though
