Japanese Silky has delivered saws since 1919 and 1991 Grönyte-Konsult AB brought the saws to Scandinavia. Pocket Boy 130 is Silky's smallest folding saw and in my test on saws there was only one saw smaller than the Poket Boy; the Opinel No.12 only 1 mm shorter. However the Pocket Boy's advantage over the Opinel No.12 is it's 11 mm longer blade. Speaking of my folding saw test; I'd like to crown the Silky Pocket Boy as the test's most efficient saw, when looking at the ratio between size and cutting performance. See more about the saw test covering 12 test objects; click HERE.
Silky Pocket Boy's handle consist of a steel frame covered in rubber featuring a nice ergonomic shape and a lanyard hole. A robust leaver locks the blade in two different positions unfolded. Folded the blade is not locked by the locking mechanism, however the friction is keeping the blade tucked in securely during transport. Unfolded the blade has a slight play vertically, this is nothing bothering me though. The saw comes in two different colors (red or black handle) and is delivered with a basic sheath made of transparent plastic.
I've now been using Silky's saws since 2011 and I'm still very pleased with their performance.
