Small Japanese Saws with replaceable Blades

Small Japanese Saws with replaceable Blades
- for Wood, Bamboo, Plastics

These versatile small Japanese saw with replaceable blades will be often used in any workshop. They make excellent replacements for many kinds of small, fine-toothed saws. They come in all the usual configurations for Japanese saws: Dozuki (back saw), Ryoba (saw with teeth on both edges) and Kataba (saw without a back). It is just that they are somewhat smaller and handier for many kinds of jobs. They are also very practical for traveling and jobsites, because they break down into grip and blade and so can be stored in even the smallest or fullest tool chest. The exception to this is the Z-Saw Dozukis, because the back is firmly set into the handle and so cannot be taken apart. The Z-Saws make up for this slight drawback by producing a remarkably fine and smooth cut surface.

The blades from the three Kataba saws we offer can be used in and exchanged between all the grips. This is nice because if you do not often cut bamboo or plastic, for instance, you can just store the blades and then pop them into a handle as needed. The handles are made of plastic.

Dozuki Duo short

We offer a saw for ripcut and crosscut which is very good for small tenons. Additionally we offer the same type with crosscut blade. The blade is exchangeable and interchangeable between both saws. Note: A crosscut made with the crosscut blade is smoother than with the blade for ripcut and crosscut.

Dozuki Short Crosscut
Do I need a crosscut saw when I already have a saw for both cut directions? Usually not, but if you only need to cut across the grain, we recommend the crosscut saw, as the cut is smoother.
