The SILKY Bigboy saw is one of the largest folding saws available in the SILKY saw range and, apart from the Katanaboy, it gives a longer reach than all the folding pruning saws we keep in stock. The cutting performance is absolutely staggering and the 360mm hard chrome-plated blade features a low angle 2000mm radius curve. This pruning saw will easily tear through tree branches with the minimum of effort. When pruning trees with the Silky Bigboy 2000, as with all Silky saws, always let the saw do the work when cutting through a branch. Only light pressure is required when cutting as the razor-sharp teeth will do the rest.  One crucial thing to remember is to never twist the blade when in use as this will cause the blade to break. This is the case with any pruning saw, but especially Silky because, as you’ll discover, the razor sharp blade requires only a very small amount of pressure to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

The non-slip, 2-handed handle of the saw is rubber cushioned and the saw is very well balanced for an ergonomic and comfortable cutting experience. The Silky Bigboy 2000 is suitable for cutting through large branches, as well as small tree trunks. The blade is taper-ground with impulse-hardened non-set teeth. Replacement blades for this and every other Silky saw we stock are usually in stock and available to buy.

The Silky Bigboy 2000 continues to be one of our best selling pruning saws, not only from Silky but from the brands we stock. So, if you’re looking for a reliable and high performance pruning saw, then you need look no further!

SILKY Bigboy 2000 technical Information


Blades are made from SK-4 high carbon steel and taper ground i.e. thicker at the tooth edge, thinner at the back of the blade. This taper reduces resistance giving smoother, easier, faster cutting.


Using a special high frequency heating technique, teeth are heated instantly and hardened. Because only the teeth are heated the blade retains its normal flexibility. Hardened teeth stay sharp about 3 times longer than non-hardened.


Hard chrome plating produces an exceedingly hard, durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin. They are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.


Almost all Silky saws have rubber compound elastomer handles, either inserted or vulcanised to ABS plastic or steel. Rubber handles are more comfortable to hold, reduce vibration and offer superior grip in the cold and wet.

    My husband is delighted with the folding saw. It is easy to use and has been great for taking down branches and even small trees in our garden with minimal effort. A really useful tool. Thank you to Briants also for good service

  2. Alex (verified owner)

    It has tackled 6 inch trunks with no trouble at all, saving loads of time mucking about with traditional bow-saws.
    Particularly good when working in limited spaces.
    It may be a little expensive but this is simply the only GOOD quality large folding saw that one can get.
    Best £60 I’ve spent in a long time.
    And a mention to the Briants team who handled my order really well.

  3. John (verified owner)

    I bought the saw to help me reduce the height of a fairly long, very tall leylandii hedge over an intensive 2 week period. It was perfect for the job and helped to make it a lot easier than it would otherwise have been. It sliced through very thick branches with ease and is ideal for working in tight spaces. The combined length of the blade and handle gave me a long reach which helped a lot. It was as sharp at the end of the job as it was at the beginning. A fast delivery from Briants. Highly recommended.

    Well made, top quality pull saw! Requires a certain level of skill when using it, its not just any odd inferior quality saw that can cheaply be replaced! When used correctly it makes sawing almost effortless, amazing tool, made to last a very long time.

  5. Nick (verified owner)

    This is a monster of a saw! I don’t think there is any doubt about the quality of Silky, but just to reiterate: it is amazing! Definitely worth getting the case that goes with it, Briants had it on an offer when bought together, along with a spare blade just in case. Order was despatched quickly by the Briants team

  6. Richard (verified owner)

    Excellent saw, surprising how easy it is to cut some thick branches. Great product would recommend. Quick delivery.

  7. Dave Cousins (verified owner)

    Silky big boy 2000, nice that it’s made in Japan. The saw looks and feels quality, haven’t had chance to use yet but it looks like it will do the job.
    Will definitely deal with Briants again, great service and quickly dispatched.
