Set of 2 Japanese Hand Saws

Rutlands    Part No. JP1177

• The world's finest Japanese saws made by Gyokucho Razorsaw
• Impulse hardened tooth tips for superior sharpness and to prevent tooth breakage
• Each tooth is symmetrically set to ensure straight, drift free sawing
• Ultra thin hardened steel blade requires significantly lower sawing force
• Each blade is surface plated, not lacquered to prevent rust and to minimise friction
• Light weight yet extremely strong handles for fatigue free sawing
• Each blade is secured to the handle by a no-play adjustment screw,
  for smooth chatter free sawing

This set comprises two of the most useful Japanese saws. The dozuki has a rip cut tooth pattern, allowing it to make fine rip cuts. The double edged ryoba saw will make fine cross and rips cuts in exotic and hardwoods and is well sized for long, deep cuts. The overall design of the Japanese saws or "Noko Giri" differs greatly from the more familiar western style saws.

The Japanese put great emphasis on balance in all areas of their life and their woodworking tools are no exception. Look at the shape and form of a Japanese saw and the handle is in perfect visual balance with the blade. Hold the same saw in your hand and you realise that the balance of the tool is not purely cosmetic. This makes the tool easier and more efficient to use and has a profound effect on your work.

Japanese handsaws have one stand out difference from their western counterparts; they cut on the pull stroke rather than the push stroke. Due to this single fundamental difference, Japanese saws have blades that are thinner, lighter and cut much smoother and faster. As the action of pulling the saw keeps the blade in tension through the cut, the blade does not need to be as thick or as heavy as a push saw which requires the extra bulk to withstand the compressive force of the cut keeping the blade, and the resultant cut, straight.

    A fellow cabinetmaker suggested I try these saws for hand cutting dovetails and I am not dissapointed. These are so accurate and the cut is so fine, I've been able to cut houndstooth dovetails with little trouble. I'm now a convert to Japanese saws and will be buying more soon.

    I couldn't believe how long these saws were but they give you so much more cut per stroke making it so much faster to cut. The ultra fine ryoba is now my favourite saw and goes to every job with me.

    these saws have been given a tought time in my workshop and they are still wonderfully sharp. i work with a lot of ebony and wenge and these really rise to the occasion when cutting and making joints. i find the a bit too long for box work for for cabinet work there the business.
