Silky Fox: Super Accel 21 Japanese Folding Pruning Saw
When we knew it was to be a pruning day, the Super Accel would be put in the holster along with the Okatsune secateurs. Many the day spent working with these two super efficient and reliable tools. Truly tried and tested.
The Super Accel 21 is a very popular lightweight folding saw with a versatile 210mm length blade. The saw is designed for general pruning and is happily used by professional arborists and amateur gardeners alike. Also useful for camping and bush craft activities.
This saw has the standard 7.5 teeth per 30mm configuration
The blade easily and securely locks into two different angle positions for easy cutting. Use the first position for most cutting jobs. On occasion, the second flush cutting position proves invaluable in confined or unusual situations.
The comfortable, rubber coated handle is easy to grasp especially on the pull-stroke when a greater cutting force is needed and allows for good grip even in wetter conditions and keeps vibrations down.
The saws are designed to have replaceable blades and other parts are also available. There is just one screw to unwind in order to change the blade.
- Blade length: 210 mm (till Ø 105 mm)
- Teeth: large (7.5 teeth per 30 mm) - still provide a clean cut
- GOM rubber handle - comfortable and less vibration
- Impulse hardened teeth - stay sharp 3 times longer than standard
- Non-set teeth - for fast, clean cutting
- Limited lifetime warranty
Made in Japan, like all the best sharp things.
WARNING. NEVER CUT DIRECTLY ABOVE YOUR HEAD. Always consider where the falling branches will land on the ground. We strongly recommend the use of protective hard hats and glasses.
WARNING. Silky Saws are extremely sharp so please be careful when using and keep away from children. Be particularly careful at the end of a cut when the saw comes free of the limb. I dropped a Sugoi once and it caught my leg above the knee - the scar's still there, a neat line of tooth marks.
MANUFACTURER WARNING. Incorrect use of a Silky Saw may cause injury. Silky, its affiliates, subsidiaries, importers, distributors and dealers are not responsible for and shall not be liable for any fatality, injury, loss, or damage resulting from the use of its products.
