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 power grip handle Japanese saws, Dozuki (R1001), Kataba (R1004) and Ryoba (R1007).

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 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, 240mm long blade 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 240mm 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 240mm 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.

Power Grip Handle
The blade is mounted on a handle made from TPE which is very robust and resilient material and features a hatched grip that is both slip-proof and extremely comfortable to hold. Made in Miki City, Japan. ©

Japanese Saws

I am a novice woodworker and have struggled to work with western saws. These saws are so easy to work with and cut with ease.

Having not used but always admired the Japanese way of looking at things I thought I'd give them a try. Bit, am I glad I did. Super thin blades that can't buckle or bow as they cut on the pull stroke, simple! The finish of the cut is excellent on both the crosscut and the rip blade. Fantastic build quality, light and effortless to use. The next thing to try is the hollow back chisel.

Japanese Saws - 240mm - Power Grip - Set of 3

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.
