Hardwood Saws with exchangeable blades

Z-Saw

 

Genuine hardwoods are seldom found in traditional woodworking projects in Japan. Even the native white oak found in Japan is nowhere near as hard as the indigenous European oak. That is why as a rule the tooth geometry of Japanese saws is optimised for soft and semi-hard wood. If these saws are used for cutting hardwood, such as beech, oak or even tropical hardwood, it can happen that individual teeth break off. We’ve been offering hardwood saws from Japan for some time now, they’re very good, but they’re forged and hardened and as such only of limited value in the hands of less experienced users. What’s more, they belong in a somewhat different price category.

Which is why we are now pleased to be able to offer relatively affordable hardwood saws from the renowned Japanese saw manufacturer Z-Saw. These saws are provided with an exchangeable blade; the broken or blunt blade is simply replaced with a new blade. This saw is a true all-rounder, suitable for ripping, cross and diagonal cuts, and as such ideal for producing dovetails in hardwood. A brief note: you have to be far more accurate when working with hardwood than with softwood. Under pressure, softwood will occasionally camouflage a less than perfect connection and, with a bit of luck, the blemish will be hardly visible. Hardwood is not so forgiving. These saws are available in the version "Dozuki", saw with back, in two sizes.
