    Instead of clogging up the other thread I’ll get this one going for discussion on the different Japanese Hand saws and which to use for what.

    58chev congrats on the BBQ spatula lol
    That looks like a very nice saw. Looking forward to seeing it in use Frank.

    58chev congratulations on the saw!You gonna do some Japanese joinery with it?

    those saws are perfect to cut under the jambs when you doing flooring. What you planing to use it on.

    congrats on your new tool. what a nice japanese saw…I only hear good things about those

    58chev nice saw, I’m jealous! I’d love to have a few Japanese saws.

    ThanX folks,
    It will definitely be used for joinery, I don’t have a good selection of saws at this point but am trying to better my collection.
    Next on my list is a Dozuku Saw.

    Congrats on that saw 58chev. I’m looking forward to your comments as well. My only Japanese saw is a LV dovetail saw which is just a joy to use. It makes me think I need more of them so I’m ready to learn all about them.

    I certainly want to hear your impressions. I want to try Japanese saws, but I dont know where to start, and their names are all, well Japanese, to me

    oh they are fantastic, I use mine quite a bit, I eventually want to get into western type saws but at the moment the japanese ones are significantly cheaper in price. I am using a construction style ryoba and it works amazing and fast.

    I don’t know much about Japanese saws either, but looks like a good read.

    Those saws are awesome, my dad had one he got years ago. We would use it for a lot of things that we use the omt for now.

    I used to have Vaughn Bear saw, kind of a cheap American version of a Japanese saw I think. Used it for cutting off shims when hanging doors.

    Jeff the one I have came from Amazon and is shipped in from Japan. They do have others that I have been looking at ordering. Typically shipping is free or next to nothing.

    A quick thanks for this thread. I’ll be following closely. Going to watch the videos now; I’ll be full of questions after, no doubt.

    For trim work it probably comes in very handy.

    I have an old double sided Stanley saw that I use for the bottoms of door jambs.
    This one will live in my shop and be used for tenons and other wood cutting.

    I have a modern Ryoba from Lee Valley. I have a hard time bonding with it. I guess I am too accustomed to western style saws but I pull it out and try it again now and then.

    I have a full collection of western saws, but almost everyone talks about the japanese saws as though they are magic. I want to try them out of curiosity mostly

    I can get blades with all different teeth configurations on them for all different kinds of work.

    Some interesting stuff on that site.


    @r-ice
    , do you know if they sell and ship to Canada? Prices seem to be all in Yen.
