Quick Overview

Silky Saws in Japan craft a number of different saws that are perfect for cutting bamboo. Your selection is based on the diameter of the bamboo and whether you are fast cutting for harvest or fine cutting for presentation.

 The selection of saws is a guide for you to work with. The saws usually have different lengths and tooth size that can be found by following the link to that particular saw.

Bamboo growers use the fine and extra fine tooth saws for finishing work or bamboo with a diameter less than 40mm. Pocket boy Extra fine tooth (344-17), Pocket boy fine tooth (342-17), Gomtaro 240mm Fine tooth (104-24) and Tsurugi 300mm Medium tooth (452-30).

For larger diameter bamboo and harvesting quickly a larger tooth size is generally used. Big boy Fine tooth (352-36), Gomtaro 300 Fine tooth (104-30), Big boy Large tooth (350-36), Gomtaro 300 Large tooth (102-30), Tsurugi 300mm Medium tooth (452-30) and Tsurugi 400mm Medium tooth (452-40). Using too big a tooth on smaller diameter bamboo causes it to fray, splinter and split.

 Silky Bamboo Saws are designed to cut really smoothly and give a professional finish to your bamboo construction or display.
