The Hibiki, by Silky is a ryoba format (double-sided, pull-cut) for both ripping and cutting. The blade is chrome-plated and taper ground. The ripping side of the blade has 11 teeth per inch at the base for smooth starts and seven teeth per inch at the tip for productive rip cuts. The crosscutting side features 18.6 teeth per inch for a fast and ‘silky smooth’ cut.
The saw’s teeth are razor sharp and spaced for moving quickly through even the hardest wood. Silky impulse-hardens the teeth on both sides of the blade, so they remain sharp considerably longer than conventional blades. The Hibiki comes with a snap-lock storage sheath to protect the blade.
The aluminum alloy handle is rubber-gripped and coated for ergonomic comfort and secure handling.
