The Silky Fox Gomboy Outback Saw is one of a new line of folding saws from Silky Fox. They have been designed specifically for outdoors and hunting use.

This saw features a black coating of a unique nickel and tin blend on its blade, including the teeth. This provides a long blade life and an incredible cutting performance, not only in wood but also when sawing bones. In addition, the dark, non-reflective colour makes this saw particularly suitable for tactical operations.

The blade is taper ground to reduce resistance giving smoother, easier, faster cutting performance, and the four cutting angles along the blade length leaves a smooth surface after cutting. This blade can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut. During manufacture the teeth of the blade are heated instantly and hardened, this will enable them to stay sharp about three times longer than non-hardened teeth.

The arbor composite handle has a warm and comfortable touch. No matter the cold or wet conditions, this handle offers a safe grip and superior control.

The blade can be locked in two positions and when not in use, you can fold it so that the sharp teeth are completely covered in the handle. A transparent case is also included.

  • Blade length: 240 mm
  • Teeth pitch: 8 (6.8 tpi)
  • Blade type: Curved
  • Weight: 288 g
  • Entire blade is coated with a nickel/tin blend for longer blade life
  • Arbor Composite grip is made of unique wood/plastic composition providing warm and comfortable touch
  • Carrying case included

  Silky took a great saw and made it better. If you're a fan of Silky saws you will like this because they improved it over the original Gomboy. It now has a coating to help prevent rust and make it glide through wood better. It's slightly thicker so there's less risk of it breaking and it looks great. The sheath is okay but doesn't look durable, however it's rain resistant and protects the saw. Like all Silky saws it does a great job of sawing through green wood and they say it will cut bone too but I haven't had chance to try that yet.

  Big fan of the Silky brand, when I seen they had these outback designs, I had to purchase one. High standard as usual to be expected from silky. The only minus is the case is a little small for the saw, it fits just but its tight. Speedy delivery from the website which is always a bonus, overall 5 out of 5 for said product.

  Great saw but it doesn’t fit in the plastic case that comes with, without really forcing it in and wiggling it to get the handle in just the right spot to close. I’d have given it 5 stars if it hadn’t come with this case, but now I have a huge chunk of plastic and given how much I already dislike plastic, it has forced me to knock 2 stars off. Great saw with too much packaging and a chunk of plastic thrown in.

  Improved version of a quality capable tool. The curved blade works really well and the outback handle grip is excellent even when wet plus there is a more fitting aesthetic for bushcraft as a bonus. A little bit pricey but worth it if you don’t already have this size.

  Excellent super sharp saw with two cutting positions, great handle material and a much more useable size than a Pocketboy. One star off for a carry case that is hopeless and no way to lock the blade closed, unlike a Laplander. Best to source a robust leather sheath for it.

  I thought the Bahco Laplander was a good saw but this is in another league, admittedly it should be for the price but it’s well worth the extra expense. Very impressive piece of kit and as always top service from Woodlore.
