Silky named the Katanaboy after the famous "Katana" sword of the Japanese Samurai, inspired by its exceptional blade length of 50 cm. Just like the sword, the steel of the Katanaboy has been specially forged and tempered so that the inside of the blade is relatively soft, allowing the blade to flex and the teeth to grip the wood. And at the same time the outside of the blade is exceptionally hard so as to guarantee that the teeth stay razor-sharp.
Silky has designed the Katanaboy to compete against chainsaws ! The teeth are aggressive so as to cut rapidly. At the same time the teeth leaves a smooth, undamaged surface on the cut wood. The long handle in aluminium with its anti-slip, rubber sheathing is designed to be held in two hands for sawing at full power.
