This is our best selling set of three Japanese saws and is favoured by professional cabinet makers, joiners and home woodworkers. 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. This set consists of a Dozuki, Ryoba and Kataba saw. Made in Japan.

The Dozuki saw has an ultra thin blade for fast, accurate sawing where an ultra fine finish is required when sawing dovetail joints, picture framing, moulding and beading.

The Ryoba is a double edge saw with two tooth patterns, one for cross cutting and the other for cutting with the grain on hard and softwoods. It features impulse harden teeth that are successively finer from tip to tang for easy starting cuts.

The Kataba saw has a slightly thicker blade without a spine making it ideal for long and deep cuts. The perfect combination of fine, flexible blade and large cut depth make it an extremely versatile saw, capable of cutting hard and softwood and composite materials leaving a clean feather free finish to the cut surfaces.

The 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
