Set of 3 Compact Japanese Hand Saws

Rutlands    Part No. JP1174

• 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

An ideal addition to any tool box, this set of three compact saws comprises dozuki and kataba saws, both capable of starting and making mid panel cuts and a ryoba saw. Ideal for all types of woodwork especially trim and carpentry applications, these saws are easy to use and produce a fine finish. These compact saws have soft grip handles.

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 set of replacement blades (JP2119 dozuki, JP 2122 ryobi and JP 2123) costs £ 47.85) but 2 of 3 are out of stock so I bought another full set. I'm accumulating spare handles instead of spare blades!

    By no means an essential tool box item, but these saws posess all the advantages of any pull saw but in minature. Furniture making and repair,trimming, small joints,hard to reach places or just a handy accessory to keep in the van, for those jobs where nothing else will do.

    I'd never used a japanese saw before but once I got the hang of it, these are marvelous to use. Fast and unbelievably smooth cut. I'd recommend the dozuki for for trim work.

    An excellent set of saws, the curved toes on the Kataba and Dozuki are particularly useful as I do much cut out work. Beautifully sharp and I really like the softer handles. These have proved to be an invaluable addition to my saw collection.
