Silky saws are manufactured in Ono Japan, historically home to fine cutlery steel. Crafting fine wood cutting saws since the early 1900s, Silky continues to raise the bar for quality, endurance and cutting efficiency, according to Meyer.

“This is the perfect item for any camper/RV’er, hiker, off-road enthusiast,” says Nick Gramelspacher, vice president of sales and marketing for Meyer Distributing. “These saws work unlike any non-gas powered cutting device I’ve ever seen. That performance, along with a lifetime warranty, made it an easy decision for Meyer to partner with Silky.”
