Product Details

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. The blade is mounted on a modern style handle with a soft, rubberised grip for greater comfort and control during cutting.

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 double edged gives the user two saws for the price of one. 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.
