Recently I had to climb up a fairly tall tree on my property to top it off and the only saw I had was some old $10 Home Depot bow saw. Needless to say, it took a lot of effort and time to do what I needed to do. To sum it all up, it wasn't fun. Afterwards, I started looking for a new saw and I found a lot of amazing videos on YouTube about Silky saws. They seem to cut through trees like a hot knife through butter. I wanted to see what everyone here thought of them and maybe get an idea what model to get. First off, what is the difference between a curved blade and a straight one? Does the curved blade cut faster? As for the fixed blade vs folder, I get it - fixed blade is more stable and in general is more preferred unless you need a portable saw to carry around in a backpack. Is there a model that can sort of be the Jack of all trades? Thanks!
