Product Details

This set of three saws comprises a Dozuki Ultra Fine Compact Saw for exceptionally fine, clean rip, cross and angled cutting, a Kataba Universal Compact Saw for cutting very abrasive materials such as MDF and exotic hardwoods and a Ryoba Compact Saw for making fine finishing and trimming cuts. An ideal set for the fine cabinet maker....


Gyokucho Dozuki Ultra Fine Compact Japanese Saw - 180mm - JP2133...

With a tooth pitch of only 1.0mm, this saw will make extremely fine cuts in both hardwoods and softwoods. The 0.3mm blade thickness combined with the minimal set of the teeth ensures that this saw produces a very narrow kerf. The triple bevelled teeth slice through the wood fibres giving perfectly smooth surfaces.


Gyokucho Kataba Universal Compact Japanese Saw - 180mm - JP2132...

This compact kataba saw features triple bevel edged crosscut teeth for slicing through the wood fibres for a smooth, clean finish. The toe of the blade is curved and has rip teeth rather than crosscut ones. The combination of curve and rip teeth with no set allows this saw to start a cut mid panel as well as at the edge. Ideal for making cut outs in all kinds of solid hardwoods, softwoods and wood composites. Kataba saws have slightly thicker blades that do not require the reinforcing spine that the dozuki saws do giving the kataba saws unrestricted cutting depth. The kataba has the perfect combination of fine, flexible blade and large cut depth making it an extremely versatile saw. Capable of cutting solid hardwood and softwood, plywood and composite materials and will leave a clean finish to the cut surfaces, this is the saw of choice for making deep or long cuts and can also be used for flush cutting and trimming.


Gyokucho Ryoba Compact Japanese Saw - 180mm - JP2131...

This compact ryoba saw is an excellent, general purpose saw. The cross cut teeth have a pitch of 1.5mm allowing them to cut quickly yet still leave a very smooth finish. The ripping teeth have a variable pitch from 3.78mm at the toe to 2.0mm at the heel for a better, more accurate result when starting a cut. Offering the best of both worlds to carpenters, cabinet makers and all kinds of other woodworkers, the ryoba saw has two cutting edges. One side has triple bevel edged teeth for making incredibly fine cross cuts, the other side has triangular, flat sharpened rip cutting teeth that cut like tiny chisels leaving a perfectly smooth finish to any rip cut. The blades taper towards the middle giving improved clearance when making deep cuts and this taper is achieved by the blacksmith hollowing out the centre of the blade making it thinner than the cutting edges. The pitch of the teeth becomes finer towards the heel of the blade making it easier to start the cut under the saw's own weight with no extra force required from the user. For best results, use the saw at a very low angle of around 5 - 10 degrees to the wood.

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.
