Silky Pocketboy - Medium Tooth

  • Sale
  • Regular price $60.00


Available in 2 sizes (use the drop down option)

A key piece of my basic gardening kit. These Silky Pocketboys are compact and so convenient, fitting neatly and unobtrusively into pockets, pouches, or holsters.

I carry the 170mm in my Tool Belt year-round so I so can deal with small pruning jobs as I go. Eliminates the run back and forth to the truck or the shed. Or the need to haul around your loppers. 

My go-to has been the Pocketboy 170mm (7") blade with medium teeth – excellent for most pruning jobs that we encounter in our day-to-day maintenance rounds.

We also offer a couple of other Pocketboy options, the 130mm (5") blade being one of them. It is even easier to tuck it into a pocket or pouch. The shorter blade fits more easily in between crowded, congested branches - a really useful feature for renovative shrub pruning.

Both sizes have a comfortable, easy-to-grip rubbery handle and a 2-position blade-locking system.

Unlike western saws that cut on the push stroke, Japanese saws cut on the pull so there's less chance of the blade jumping, making for a cleaner/finer cut with a lot less effort.

Each Pocketboy has a colour-coded handle associated with the teeth configuration:

Holster tip:  The 170mm models fit neatly into the back sleeve of the Niwaki double holster during winter pruning season. Secateurs in the front and you're all set!
