The Gomboy with medium teeth is a multifunctional saw for different outdoor purposes. Whether you are sawing firewood for a campfire during your hike through the mountains or whether you are making a pot hanger to prepare a warm meal in the woods, this handy pull saw is an indispensable part of your equipment!
The Gomboy has unique teeth and saws on the pull stroke, which requires less energy and is easy to control. This does not only enable you to saw very rapidly through thick tree trunks, it also allows you to make a very precise sawing cut. That comes in handy when it comes down to precision, e.g. when making a trap or bow drill. In some situations you simply need more than just an axe or a knife.
This folding saw is compact, lightweight and can easily be carried in your backpack. In this way you are always in a position to saw wood, for instance when building a shelter or making a campfire in emergency situations. That is easier and faster than dragging branches around through the forest or collecting little branches from the ground, especially in the dark or when covered under a thick layer of snow.
Respect the nature and do not just saw in a healthy tree, but find a knocked down one or blown off branch instead. The Gomboy can easily handle wood that has gotten wet or was covered by a layer of snow for a long time.
The rubber handle of the Gomboy ensures a safe and comfortable grip. The hole in the handle offers the possibility to attach a carabiner or rope to the saw.
The blade can easily and securely be locked in two sawing positions. When folded, the teeth of the Gomboy are fully concealed in the handle. You can therefore store the saw loose in your backpack.
The Gomboy will be delivered in a transparent hard case with belt holder. The bottom is equipped with a notch and two holes to drain moisture and saw dust.
Silky Saws are manufactured from SK-4 carbon steel and cut out by a laser. The teeth are designed with no set which means they are formed inside the width of the blade - this reduces friction and enables a cleaner, faster and easier cut. Many other saws have teeth formed to project outside the width of the blade requiring much greater effort when sawing.
There are 4 razor sharp cutting angles on the inside of each tooth. Silky call this 'Mirai-Me' and it enables the blade to cut smoothly through the branch, significantly reducing splintering and producing a very fine, smooth cut. The super fine cut destroys up to 50% less wood cells allowing the tree to heal faster and reduces the risk of disease.
The manufacturing process also uses the technique of high-frequency electro-impulse hardening during which the teeth are heated and hardened. Importantly, only the teeth are hardened, not the rest of the blade. Thus the blade retains its original flexibility whilst the teeth have a life which is up to 3 times longer than that on standard saws.
The blades are also chrome plated which helps protect against rust and sap as well as providing additional strength. This helps extend the life of the blade.
Almost all Silky saws are fitted with a specially designed rubber 'Gom' handle which reduces vibration and improves grip, reducing the danger of slipping in wet conditions.
