Sets of Japanese Saws

Saw sets simplify the introduction to the use of Japanese saws, and give the more experienced user a "step up" to higher skill levels. If you haven't used Japanese saws before, start with the least expensive set; you'll still get professional-looking results. Once you've become comfortable using these saws, you will see your work improve to the point at which you will want to try higher-grade tools.

I am convinced that there is such a thing as an esthetic in work processes. Using professional-grade saws, products of centuries of the tool-making art, will give you the opportunity to experience this.

If you are prepared to respect and properly care for saws of a quality and precision that may exceed the present level of your skills, there is no reason not to use them. You will understand, however, that we cannot consider kinked saw blades and broken teeth as defects in the material. Saw blades kink or break because when they are not properly guided, which will literally tear the blade. Teeth break when too much pressure is applied, particularly in hardwood; by hitting a hidden nail, or by jerking the saw. The finer the saw, the more "feel" is needed in its use.

Set, consisting of 3 Mini Saws
Set, consisting of 3 Mini Saws
This saw set includes a ryoba with teeth on both sides of the blade, a dozuki, and a kataba for cross cutting. These saws come carefully packed in a beautifully-made wooden box.
The saw blades are about 75 mm (3 inches) long with 60 mm of teeth. The grips are about 130 mm (5.2 inches), making a total length of about 215 mm (8.6 inches). The blade width for the ryoba and the kataba is 0.3 mm and the dozuki 0.2 mm. The tooth count of the cross-cut edges is less than 1 mm (26 TPI) and the rip cut teeth about 1.8 mm (14 TPI).
These saws are fully functional, like normal-sized saws, and made to the same high standards. They come from the sawsmith Hishika in Miki, where our traditional professional saws are produced (see photo and saw set above). Look at more photos, and a comparison photo with a normal-size saw.
