The three most popular Japanese saws; Dozuki, Kataba and Ryoba, for crosscutting, ripping and fine joinery. Cutting on the pull stroke, each blade is kept in tension throughout the cut, allowing them to be significantly thinner and lighter, removing less material and therefore requiring far less energy to cut. Each tooth is impulse hardened for superior sharpness and blade life.

FULL DESCRIPTION
This set features the three most popular rattan handle Japanese saws, Dozuki (R1002), Kataba (R1005) and Ryoba (R1008).

Japanese Saws
Made exclusively for Rutlands® by Gyokucho, the world's leading Japanese saw manufacturer, these saws have one stand out difference from their western counterparts; they cut on the pull stroke rather than the push stroke. The action of pulling the saw keeps the blade in tension through the cut, which allows the blade to be thinner and lighter, for a much smoother and faster cut. The narrow kerf means that the saw removes less material and requires far less energy to achieve a super-fine, tear free and clean cut. Each tooth is impulse hardened for superior sharpness and to stay sharper for longer. The teeth are symmetrically set to ensure straight, drift free sawing and the blades are electronically surface plated to minimise friction and prevent resin build up and corrosion.

Dozuki
This Dozuki saw has a 180mm long blade that allows for maximum control and features ultra-thin, universal teeth for sawing across, along and diagonally to the grain. Due to the finest of kerfs, Dozuki saws are indispensable for cutting dovetails and other fine joints and for making precise shoulder and crosscuts. The universal tooth pattern allows for the rip-cut of pins and the crosscut of side pins when making dovetails in both hard and soft wood. A reinforced back stabilises the 0.3mm ultra-thin to ensure backlash free saw blade guidance for straight, chatter free performance.

Kataba
Kataba saws have slightly thicker blades, that are very robust and not require a reinforcing back, allowing for deep cuts flush to the surface and for long cuts on large workpieces. This Kataba has a 180mm blade with impulse hardened, trapezoidal teeth for cutting across and diagonal to the grain. Each tooth is sharpened on three edges in an alternating pattern to cleanly slice, rather than tear the wood fibres leaving an extremely clean, smooth finish. The tooth geometry is excellent at clearing the kerf to prevent clogging. With its wear resistant, super hard teeth this Kataba saw will perform trimming, shoulder and flush cuts in hardwoods, exotic and tropical hardwoods, soft woods, particle boards and glued woods.

Ryoba
The Ryoba is the most versatile Japanese saw for cabinetmaking and joinery as the blade has two different tooth patterns to allow for both crosscut and rip work. This Ryoba has a 180mm blade with impulse hardened, trapezoidal teeth for cutting across and diagonal to the grain on one side and triangular teeth for ripping along the grain on the opposite side. The trapezoidal teeth are sharpened on three edges in an alternating pattern to cleanly slice, rather than tear the wood fibres leaving an extremely clean, smooth finish. The triangular rip teeth become progressively finer from tip to tang to make starting the cut easier and to use less force as the stroke progresses. Ryoba saws have slightly thicker blades, that are very robust and not require a reinforcing back, allowing for deep cuts flush to the surface and for long cuts on large workpieces in hardwood, softwood and particle board.

Rattan Handle
Traditional in style, the blade is mounted on a lightweight wooden handle for fatigue free working and is wrapped in rattan for excellent comfort, breathability and hold. Made in Miki City, Japan. ©

Finally succumbed

I’m an old Handtools woodworker only ever used western saws(I like sharpening setting and refurbishing) and I just like using old tools. Out of curiosity I purchased a set of three (blade size 180mm) Japanese saws.
I enjoyed using them for ripping and crosscutting and found the width of the cut(kerf) fine-smooth-clean
And the added bonus being able to cut pegs flush and getting into tight spaces.
I shall still be using my western saws inconjuction with these Japanese saws

First Class saws

An excellent set of saws for small work. This is the second set we have bought from Rutlands (we have a set of the larger ones). They are perfect for precise cuts, cut fast leaving an excellent finish, and, cutting on the pull stroke make it much easier to follow a knife line.

**** Saw Set

A lady friend of mine likes wood working and ask for a set for her Birthday, I have to say for the money that these are very good quality and well worth a look at if you are in the market for this type of saw. Rutlands only do good quality gear anyway but these are not the largest in the range but for smaller hands they are compact and easy to handle.

Quality saws at reasonable prices, the saw’s are that good I have bought four sets over the years all from yourselves. My first set I lent to a friend and one of them came back damaged .The 240 size and now the180 both are excellent quality and comfortable to use one or two handed giving a very good finish to any job I have done. They have never let me down it’s like they self sharpen whenever I use them. The delivery time exceeds any other firm that I have bought from.
I would recommend Rutland's because of quality and price ,customer service and support . I will definitely be buying from you again in the near future.

Smoother, faster sawing

Cutting on the pull stroke, the blade remains in tension through the cut, allowing for a thinner blade and a much smoother and faster cut.
