FULL DESCRIPTION
This set features the two most popular Japanese flush cutting saws, Kataba (R1010) and Ryoba (R1009).

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.

Ryoba
This compact Japanese saw features two different tooth settings, both for cutting across and diagonal to the grain. The finer 1.0mm pitch is used when working on hardwoods and the 1.3mm pitch is for use with softwoods. The 125mm long, ultra thin 0.3mm blade is extremely flexible and is excellent for super fine cuts in tight spaces and for trimming off dowels and other projecting parts flush to the surface. 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.

Kataba
This compact Kataba flush cut saw is designed for fine repair cuts, sawing in tight spaces and for trimming dowels and plugs. The saw features unset crosscut teeth for cutting across and diagonal to the grain on hardwood and softwood. The 100mm long, ultra thin 0.3mm blade minimises kerf wastage and is extremely flexible and can bend through 90° to access areas other saws can not reach. The teeth cleanly slice, rather than tear the wood fibres leaving a clean, smooth finish.

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

Versatile hand tool

Used for delicate and accurate sawing mainly for removing damaged wood vernier and larger inlay.
On larger repairs the size and flexibility enables me to work in spaces where I would normally
have to dismantle to gain access.

Delivered very quickly and well packaged...

Delivered very quickly and well packaged. On trying them out on both hard and soft wood found the cut to be smooth and they glide through with ease, even including a repurposed former redwood door, which had been seasoned over many years and was incredibly hard. I can honestly say I have never known a saw to cut so easily, cleanly and with capability of such fine detail. I now know what will be on my Christmas list, the larger versions. Excellent service and fantastic products. Thank you.
