Silky Fox Saws is a well-known pruning saw. A straight blade produces a cleaner saw cut with greater precision than a curved blade. Straight blades are ideal for precise (formative) pruning. Straight blades are used by bushcrafters to make precise cuts while building shelters, traps, and tools. •The curved blade saws faster and more aggressively than the straight blade. Working above shoulder height and below the knees allows you to saw on top of the branch while keeping your arm, wrist, and hand in their natural position. Furthermore, the end of the saw cut is easily discernible. This increases the efficiency of your work, even in the most difficult circumstances.
