Product Details

Featuring a full length spine this tenon saw is very similar to its western counterpart. The support given by the spine ensures that there is no vibration from the blade during cutting. The triple bevel edged teeth have a very fine 1.0mm pitch for exceptionally precise crosscuts in both hardwoods and softwoods. This saw has a traditional rattan wrapped wooden 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.

Franco

This is an exceptional piece of kit. I was initially a little put off, as the saw-blade felt almost flimsy, but this first impression was deceptive. The saw is incredibly strong and sturdy, makes light work of cutting - especially useful for dovetailing - and is very light. It gives a great level of control when working on fine pieces that need precison. I highly recommend trying one.

After reading a number of articles on japanees tools, I decided to try a pull saw. This is the one I bought and cannot express how impressed I am with it. It cuts so smoothly and cleanly it makes me wonder why the push type saws ever evolved at all.
