Japanese Fine Cut

We can always appreciate a woodworking tool that both functions well and looks great sitting on the work table. Japanese handsaws work on the pull stroke as opposed to Western style of the push stroke. This allows for a much thinner blade, which also allows for finer teeth that leave a clean and smooth cut. This kind of precision is achieved with fewer excursions as well.

Next time you are building some furniture or building a house, make sure to check out a Dozuki, Ryoba, and Kataba saws. From dovetails, larger cuts, and difficult cuts, these tools will get the job done.
