    Default Did you know that Silky make a Root Cutting Saw?

    The Silky Gomtaro Root cutting saw is brilliant for cutting the roots of trees. Root cutting can be done without the worry of tool change. The blade is hard chrome plated on the whole blade including teeth which allows the performance of cutting into soil and gravel to get those pesky roots cut out.

    Hi Treecat,

    Luckily it is quite the opposite. The Silky Blades are just getting better and better! Silky uses different metals for different saws. That is because some metals preform better in certain applications than others. The Silky Root Cutting saw is made from a Metal called SK4. It is a high carbon content steel which makes the blades very strong. The major difference with this saw though, is a special coating that they put on the tips of the teeth. This coating prevents the teeth from getting blunt very quickly, allowing them to cut through dirt, gravel and sand. They still however have the famous Mirai-Me setting which creates a very smooth easy cut, very import if you are trying to keep the tree alive and happy!
