    Need Recommendation - Saws:bow,buck,crosscut

    Seems I'm going to have to find one online & order direct.

    Does anyone know of a good quality saw company?

    I'll do the research, just need a starting point; I trust more your personal experience than online reviews.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have the Silky Bigboy and love it.
    It cuts on the pull stroke and it takes 2.5 seconds to get used to.
    I can go through 6" logs with no problem and no huffing and puffing.

    If I wanted to stay away from power saws, I'd go with their biggest model...Katanaboy

    Silky is a crosscut.

    Sorry, I can't help you, Simonds is out of business.

    Bought mine 30 years ago.

    People put them out of business with chinko junk at less than half the price.

    Jeezus I should have asked for a seeing eye dog instead.
    Sorry guys, right you both are, thank you.
    And, when I typed crosscut I was thinking 2-man crosscut like SOCOM was talking about.
    Sometimes my words get ahead of my brain.

    Thanks anyway, brother. It's the junk I'm wanting to avoid. I appreciate your reply.

    Finally could watch that vid, whatta beast! The 1000 didn't get mass produced I guess but I found some vids of the Katana500.



    I can definitely see the advantages over a bow or buck with the bigger wood.
