Silky Saws is a Japanese company that produces hand saws for professional use. The company was founded in 1919 by Kichio Okuno in Ono City, Japan. Okuno-san started the company with a small capital of just 100 yen and a strong desire to produce high-quality saws that were both durable and easy to use.
Initially, Silky Saws specialized in the production of traditional Japanese handsaws, known as "nokogiri." These saws were used primarily for cutting wood and bamboo, and were highly prized for their sharpness and durability.
In the decades since its founding, Silky Saws has continued to innovate and expand its product line. Today, the company produces a wide range of hand saws for a variety of applications, including pruning, trimming, and tree care. Silky Saws is also known for its commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, and has earned a reputation as one of the premier saw manufacturers in the world.
