  1. Hey guys, Had a small accident in a spruce tree on Wednesday. 25 foot up the main trunk during a take down, stripping the lateral branches with the silky, cut a branch on my right side from the topside until it swung down and hung on its last fibers. Grabbed to hold the branch with my left from the underside and proceeded to finish the cut off with my right hand from the topside again. The final cut went through far easier than expected and the final destination of the blade ended up hitting the topside of my wrist/forearm with some pull motion. Took a quick look as soon as it happened with blood squirting from the cut, got myself down from the tree asap and got my lad to get the first aid kit and the customer rushed me to A&E. The result of this silly mistake ended in 4 internal stitches. It had cut to muscle and cut a superficial vein and I have 9 external stitches. Thankfully no tendon damage and I should be back to work in a few weeks. Keep safe guys!
  2. On my third Silky Hayate now, buttons keep busting, yellow clamps keep splitting and popping off, aluminium seam really soft around buttons. first day with the new one and the end drops off. The sintung lopper head will not return properly either, week springs i think. I Never remember these issues with my old Hayauchi saws, Don't make em like they used to! What others are people using?

    Samurai Saws

    Hi all, I spent an interesting day at the APF at Ragley a couple of weeks ago. Whilst there I was drawn into the Samurai pruning saws stand. They were offering a Silky Zubat equivalent saw for £20 and a spare blade for £10. Since I was planning on getting a spare blade for my silky anyway I couldn't resist the bargain. My question is;- does anyone have any experience or opinions of these saws? I've not tried mine yet. I've always been very happy with the performance and durability of Silky, but they are too expensive. Since these Samurais are less than half the price they must surely be a serious contender. Any thoughts? Are Silky really worth it? Ta Simon
  4. Morning Guys, A couple of bits of good news for you all: Firstly, we have cut prices across the Silky Range, from the F180 right up to the Hayuachi Pole Saw meaning you can get your style of pruning saw for less, plus if you buy a spare blade at the same time you'll save even more money! Check out our full range by clicking here: Pruning Saws Secondly, as some of you may know we have been struggling for stock of the Meindl Airstreams over the past couple of weeks, however we've finally had a delivery this morning, and all sizes are once again back into stock and available so get those orders in while they last! Meindl Airstream Chainsaw Boots And finally, its almost the weekend

  6. Is there anything more frustrating than grabbing for your trusted handsaw only to find it has come loose from the sheath and fallen to the floor? Could you do without wasting time collecting it or worst case have to replace an expensive tool that has been lost or broken on impact? Taking on board all your feedback throughout 2010, we’ve finally developed the first original Phat Strop, which has a universal application with any tool up to a maximum weight of 2.5lb/1.25kg. So what’s in it for the user? Most importantly, it’s designed to help you prevent dangerous, sharp or heavy tools being dropped from any height that may cause serious injury or property damage. Interestingly, just about every commercial user working with tools from any height or work platform above 2.5 metres now needs a Phat Strop to comply with health & safety general duties of care. So how do I use a Phat Strop? The Phat Strop comes complete with a heavy duty lanyard, carabiner and unique cord loop, which can be thread through the eye of the tool or secured firmly around the tool handle. The lanyard extends from 1-1.4 metres so you can conveniently reach branches yet it also recoils close to the sheath meaning you avoid getting caught whilst climbing. Want to meet us? We are demonstrating at all the up-and-coming trade shows, including Capel Manor, Arb Fair North and The AA Show giving you the opportunity to find out which Cutting-Edge handsaw best suits you in our Finest Cut Competition. Plus you can experience the reach capability of our telescopic polesaws and get your hands on our latest performance clothing available as part of your CEuk Tree Management Professional Kit. Ask your local supplier about CEuk products next time you visit or check out our website Cutting-Edge Saws Order online through our Buy It Now section for in-store collection/delivery from your nearest authorised stockist. Carabiner not to be used for climbing. Not for use with a chainsaw. Avoid using the Phat Strop™ at maximum lanyard extension.
