@Trevor Gillbanks,

 

Trev, many moons ago you recommended a particular brand of hand pruning saw to me, but I have forgotten the name - could you remind me please?

 

This could have been a PM, but others will probably benefit from the knowledge too.

 

Cheers

Silky from farmlands Hort is very very hard to beat. There is another brand that farmlands carry that I think is called samari.... they are also good just a little cheaper....

Yep silky.

I've got two.

They're amazing saws I use mine all the time, I've cut down ten ft tall trees with a silky saw :rofl:

I've only changed my blade once ever and it's still sharp as, and I've had them for years now

Ten feet is pretty tall. Might even be taller than @dansar, or maybe not :mask:

Gizzy must be more backward than I thought. The rest of the country went metric in 1976.

Yes @Curious George everyone is correct. Silky saw. There are many models and they are expensive. I had mine sharpened last year after about 10 years of use. Any good saw doctor can sharpen then and a lot less than a knew blade.

As @Daley said. 3 new handles and 2 new blades a d it is still as good as the day I bought it. Or was that Barry Crimp (Good Keen Man)

I should think so. :cool:

1 handle + 1 blade = 1 saw.

Buying the 2 main components individually and replacing them is surely the equivalent of buying a new one? In which case you've had 3 since the day you bought your first one. :lol
