Pruning Saw Katanaboy 500-5

(1 reviews)

This powerful pull saw has a blade of no less than 50 cm, with which you can easily saw through tree trunks of 25 cm. That is why the Katanaboy can comfortably be compared to a chainsaw, but then without the oil, gasoline, noise and pollution. Moreover, this saw is light and compact enough to take along in your backpack.

  • Blade length: 500 mm (till Ø 250 mm)
  • Teeth: extra-large (5 teeth per 30 mm)
  • Suited for both fresh and seasoned wood
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Product description

This powerful pull saw has a blade of no less than 50 cm, with which you can easily saw through tree trunks of 25 cm. That is why the Katanaboy can comfortably be compared to a chainsaw, but then without the oil, gasoline, noise and pollution. Moreover, this saw is light and compact enough to take along in your backpack.

This is the ideal saw for the tougher jobs: trail maintenance, sawing fire wood or building a shelter during your camping trip in the woods. You will be amazed at how little energy is required to get the results possible. And secretly, it just gives an awesome feeling to be sawing with this saw! The Katanaboy can really handle everything: wet, dry, rotten or hard wood.

The strong blade has an aggressive teeth configuration and can stand a good deal. The teeth have been grinded into the blade in a unique way and stay sharp for a long time. By means of the locking button, you can quickly and easily unfold and fold this saw. For safety purposes, this process happens in two phases: first the saw can be folded halfway, and then (watch your fingers!) the saw can be folded fully.

The ergonomic rubber handle absorbs the vibrations. By using the Katanaboy with two hands, the shoulders are more relaxed which has a fantastic effect on the sawing power.

The Katanaboy was named after the ‘Katana’ sword of the Samurai.

Components

Description series

The Katanaboy is available in 3 different versions: the Katanaboy 500-5, Katanaboy 650-4 and the Katanaboy 1000-2.5-5.

As with any Silky saw, the teeth stay sharp for a long time. If deemed necessary, the teeth of the Katanaboy can be sharpened with a Silky file.

The Katanaboy comes with a sturdy, nylon shoulder-bag with Velcro closure. The bag has an extra pocket for a replacement blade.

Technical specifications

  • Authentic Premium Japanese Steel
  • Blade length: 500 mm
  • Teeth: 5 teeth per 30 mm
  • Dimensions unfolded: 1175 x 110 x 30 mm
  • Dimensions folded: 655 x 105 x 30 mm
  • Weight: 900 g
  • Kerf: 1.9 mm

The blade must be kept clean to maintain its efficiency. Resin dissolves in olive oil, which is an effective and environmental friendly way to maintain the blade with. More aggressive liquids can damage the rubber material of the handle.

When not using the saw, make sure it is dry at all times. Store the saw in a dry place, preferably in the nylon shoulder-bag.

Awesome Saw for any outdoorsman who needs to process a lot of wood fast.
The Silky Katanaboy-500 (KB-500) is an excellent saw for the serious outdoorsman. I have extensive experience in using the KB-500. You can go to my YouTube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/user/Moscowprepper ) and see for yourself. Here's a link to the "Silky Tools" Playlist ( https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdhAIcANEZ4CxeX5MaqQvprjkkegVllRW ) but I have a lot of videos in the "Shelters" Playlist in which I use the KB-500 for building shelters of both wood and snow. Here is one of the videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60zeu2v0XXI&index=19&list=PLdhAIcANEZ4Db7I7Cjt2q6uQKdAj231w2

The low weight ( about 1kg) of the KB-500 is only one of it's major advantages. "Pound for Pound" it's unbeatable. Only a chainsaw can compete with the KB-500 when talking about wood processing. That's a fact..

Another advantage is that the KB-500 can be sharpened with the correct file, which Silky of course provides. It will however take a long time for the KB-500 user before any sharpening will be needed. I have not yet had need for sharpening my KB-500 and I have cut snow and ice blocks for shelters, frozen pine logs and what not. My Kb-500 have seen a lot of use!

Basically the KB-500 makes the user able to process the some type of logs/fire wood as a chainsaw. Just a little bit slower of course. Great for filling up a long-term camp site or hunting cabin with fire wood, and you don't want to haul in a 5kg chainsaw + fuel and oil.

The price is at the higher end of the scale, but worth it.
