Product Details

Designed for cutting joints such as dovetails and tenons, this saw will leave a smooth finish regardless of whether it is cutting across the grain or along it. The teeth are universal cutting teeth which like rip teeth but have a bevelled, rather than flat bottom edge. This allows the saw to give a fine cut irrespective of the grain direction. This saw has a soft, not slip grip handle.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.
