Coconut timber is not easy to saw, as it is very hard wood, it splinters, and it is cross-fibred with a tendency to drag the sawblade back due to excessive friction. However Peterson blades are designed to saw these types of timbers easily. Petersons also have excellent strobe knives for other types of ‘furry’ timber.
