The Ultra Accel Curve is a more robust and slightly longer version of the very popular Super Accel 21. As a folding saw with a 240mm curved blade, it is portable and ideal for pruning on the level as well as above shoulder height. This is a very versatile saw which can be used for trimming, pruning, gardening and smaller woodland jobs. Perfect for keeping ready to use in the car.
The saw is designed with a large teeth configuration with 7.5 teeth per 30mm.
An easy-grip rubberized handle with lightweight aluminium chassis gives a very good grip in wetter conditions. It also serves to absorb some of the vibrations created when cutting.
It is not possible to re-sharpen the blade but the saws are designed to have replaceable blades. Other parts are also available. There is just one screw to unwind in order to change the blade.
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.
