I bought a Silky in preparation for the Summer Gathering event. Not had much eperiance with any others, but I thought that the Silky was exceptional when cutting. Generally cut through 4" branches with very little dificulty or effort on my part.......good job Hachet was not using it:)

Bill - a sheath for it is on my shopping list along with other bits I would like you to do for me. Will PM you after my USA trip as might come back with some new goodies:)

Bump; I like this one, I've had it a while now...rare as rocking horse poo. I could send it up to Mark to get a belt sheath made for it but he wouldn't be able to bring himself to send it back šŸ˜‚

Guess its got a very short 'pull', better than nothing of course.
I think it's designed more for dressing meat more than woodwork Andy. I have had a few very short pocket saws like this and the Opinel designed for cutting bone very cleanly. I have a laplander as a camping saw but for cutting firewood I always prefer a proper bowsaw that cuts in both directions.

After using a Laplander for general small stuff and liking it it struggled on more substantial stuff, of course, do I bought a Silky Bigboy, it is an absolute joy to use, it is a draw saw so cuts on the back stroke, goes through 4 5 and 6 inch limbs with ease, not to heavy or big for back packing, love it.
