Samurai Arborist Saws

Samurai saws deliver top-notch cutting at wallet-friendly prices!

Samurai Saws are some of our most popular premium arborist saws. These saws are manufactured in Japan and have many of the great technical features which have made Silky Saws so popular: impulse-hardened teeth, taper-ground blades and super-fast cutting. Samurai saws have all the latest innovations in cutting technology at a price you will love. Plus, each Samurai saw comes with its own scabbard, further increasing the value. If you are looking for a fast-cutting, long-lasting hand saw at great price, then Samurai Saws are for you.
