Our standard professional saws with impulse hardened teeth

Dozuki "KITSUTSUKI" - Japanese Saw mainly for crosscutting Dozuki "KITSUTSUKI"

This Dozuki from Z-Saw is noted for the fine cuts it produces and a plunging function for cuts that start on the flat surface of a workpiece. Dubbed "KITSUTSUKI", ie, "woodpecker" by the manufacturer, this features a hook-shaped saw blade end that is singularly suited for blind plunging cuts. The saw teeth are laser-hardened for a long tool life. The saw can also be used for longitudinal cuts, without possessing the speed of a dedicated rip saw.

Dozuki "superfine" - Japanese Saw for fine crosscutting and fine ripping Dozuki "super fine"

The extraordinary clean cut of this superfine saw will delight you. The tooth pitch of 1 mm and the small saw set - just 0.4 mm for a blade thickness of 0.3 mm - are two important performance-enhancing factors. The laser-hardened saw teeth ensure a long tool life. Originally conceived as a crosscut saw by the manufacturer, it will also double as a surprisingly fast rip saw. If you are aiming for particularly neat and precise dovetail joints, then this is the saw for you.

Traditionally Made Saws with Fixed Blade

Shirai Sangyo Dozuki Shirai Sangyo Dozuki

These traditional saws are made by Shirai Sangyo in Sanjo, Japan. The saw represents an excellent value in terms of price and quality, with the blade made of SK5-steel. The teeth on this Dozuki are only very lightly set, which allows for an extremely clean cut. This saw requires some experience. The stabilizing back is slightly curved. It naturally supports the manual sawing motion, while ensuring maximum cutting depth. The teeth are made for crosscut. The shank is up to 0.6 mm thicker towards the grip, which is made out of hinoki (Japanese cypress) wood.
