Posted 29th SepAvailable: National
Japanese Saw at Lidl, thought that this was a nice price is you wanted to try one of these. Of course it won't be as nice as a genuine Japanese saw from Japan but worth a punt at the price perhaps. It says it has a flexible 300mm saw blade with coarse and fine teeth.

Can you be precise with this? I imagine I'd make a right mess with it


Clamp a straight piece of timber to the bottom of the door and use it as a guide for the saw.
Honestly if you don't know what you're doing with this either don't buy it or practice on scrap wood first. These cut on the pull stroke which is totally opposite to probably every other saw you've ever used, and it's a different technique. It also works much better on softer woods. By all means practice and learn, but don't expect to buy it and put it straight to use around the house...!
Very good for trimming the bottom of a sticking door without having to take it off, trim and rehang

I looked at the picture and read the title as “Japanese Oar”
Be very careful when using I guess. Fingers & pipes both.

..think we all have one of those drawers
These would be ideal for Halloween! 👻
These are really good for the price. I've had a couple of these since last year and I've used them a lot. Very nice cuts, easy to use. One side is for across the grain cuts, the other side is for with the grain cuts.

Spot on I have a few of these. Not bad quality to be honest. They're great for cutting of dowels.
This doesn't seem to be on the link...

Yes, instore only.
had a look in store decided against it as they were far too flexible / thin
AHSO!

Oooh, are there replacement blades available?

I have an Irwin and although you can remove the blade you cannot get replacements. Also have the Stanley one but it is not as good as the Irwin (but you can get replacement blades).

I use them for cutting dowels/plugs flush on skirting etc..
