Japanese saws (Nokogiri).
The importance attached to saws in Japanese craftsmanship can be seen in the number of different types, the highly differentiated cutting geometries and the careful design of the handles.
Japanese wood saws work by pulling and are easier to control and since the blade cuts by pulling it can be made thinner. Although they can’t be sharpened the replaceable carbon steel blades have razor sharp tips. The teeth are very slightly offset, for minimal material loss and smooth, tear-free surfaces in the cuts. Not just saws for connoisseurs, these are extremely useful tools which will quickly become indispensable.
Replacement blades are available from our special order department.
