Built with a sturdy, yet lightweight aluminium chassis, the ULTRA ACCEL, with 240mm curved blade, is an ideal CONVEX blade for woodworking. Semicircular sawing motion replaces linear motion! The slightly curved handle allows the user's hand to clear the workbench while cutting on flat surfaces. Its ideal curved blade allows for comfortable cuts on flat surfaces such as a workbench.
This saw is designed for general carpentry. It is very unique as it has a convex blade for maximum clearance whilst cutting. It has a tooth style which will cut hard timbers with ease. It has a taper- ground blade which reduces friction when cutting. This allows the cutting stroke to feel very easy and fast. The teeth are non-set and are what Silky calls a "Mirai-Me" tooth style. This style of tooth creates a very smooth cut which can easily achieve a cross, slant and rip cut. There are 10 teeth per 30mm. This style of tooth also cuts a larger hole in the timber than the width of the blade,thus reducing the chance of the blade jamming in the cut. The tips of the teeth are impulse-hardened thereby leaving the blade flexible but the teeth very sharp and long lasting. The blades are made out of a high-carbon steel which is a very strong steel but is also quite flexible.This is very important in a handsaw. The blades also have a special coating to give them some protection. The Ultra Accel-Taiko blade has two settings. The first is a standard saw-blade angle and the second has the blade pointing into the air. This angle allows you to cut on a flat surface very easily. The handle has a rubber jacket which is made out of a special rubber designed by Silky Japan. It is called GOM and it is extremely comfortable to hold. It absorbs a lot of the vibrations you get when cutting and it allows you to have a very good grip, even when your hands are damp. All parts are replaceable, so if you lose anything you can order replacement parts, i.e. screws, blades, handles
