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 (R1000), Kataba (R1003) and Ryoba (R1006).

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.

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. ©

Beautiful set of saws

These saws are lovely. I bought these when they were on a deal so value for money is exceptional for what you receive. I’d argue even at full price these are a steal. Good quality saws from a reputable brand. What’s not to love.

Superb saws

A really nice set of saws, well engineered and of great quality, with a slightly shorter length which makes cutting lap joints easy and fast. Getting used to the pulling cut of the saws and cutting at a 45 degree angle takes a few minutes to master but once you have a set of these the western saws become somewhat redundant.

Superb saws

I bought this set because I had bought the smaller ones, which I was delighted with , as I thought they would be better for larger projects . Although I have only had them for a week , I have used them quite a lot and they are superb saws . I think they represent so much better value for money than western saws and , when you adapt to them , they are easier to use and give a better finish .

These are as amazing as everyone says they are. They are super sharp, cutting finely and very accurately with ease especially once you have learnt to let the saw cut without applying any more than light pressure and holding with a light grasp. I am in my late 60s and, until know, have only used conventional traditional English saws but I am now a convert. One reviewer said that the handles are plastic but I believe that they are bound in rattan as described and give a good grip. Four saws, in effect, that should cover 99% of your needs. An absolute bargain, especially after buying them with the Daily Price Drop discount. Yet another excellent Rutlands product in my growing collection.

These arrived well packed and in very short timescale. Very easy to use. I am actually looking forward to my next dovetail project due to the clean precise cuts. Materials and workmanship of the tools ate very good. First impressions lead me to think I may invest in some Premium grade Japanese pull saws now I have tried them. Impressed.

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.
