The POCKETBOY 170 from Silky is of high-quality workmanship. The device is delivered in a practical protective case. The ergonomically shaped handle fits well in the hand and convinces with a high grip. With little effort, you can easily make precise cuts through any kind of wood because the saw blade is very sharp. The blade can be firmly locked at two different angles of inclination. The only disadvantage is that when you fold the saw blade in, it does not lock in the holder and therefore lies loosely in the device.
The Folding saw Pocketboy from Silky is supplied in a practical protective plastic case. Attached to the cover is a short instruction manual, which briefly describes the most important aspects in English. With a total length of 37.0 cm, the blade is 17.0 cm long. The weight is 220 g.
The handle is mainly black. The saw blade classic in silver.
When you take the saw in your hand, you immediately notice that it is of high quality. The handle lies comfortably in the hand and has a high grip.
The hard chrome-plated saw blade with special Mirai-Me toothing is very sharp. You can saw through hardwood (birch) effortlessly and precisely with relatively little effort.
The saw can be mounted at two different angles of inclination. In each position, the blade is firmly locked and safe handling is guaranteed. However, if you fold the saw blade in and do not stow the device in the protective cover included in the scope of delivery, there is a risk that the saw blade will come loose because it does not lock in the holder.
