    ill take a look on amazon soon for some.. im gonna start messing around more with japanese joinery. the tooth pattern on hte japanese saws is so much better than a western style backsaw

    https://www.toolsfromjapan.com/store/

    is another great resource for japanese style saws and japanese tools. I’ve bought a few things from them before and its always great service.

    Good site, I have it bookmarked for later. Prices appear to be very good compared to LV and some others.

    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.

    It appears they do ship to Canada. I did the sign in and a trial “shop” for a saw. Shipping charge to Canada ranges from $10 – 25CDN. There is a drop-down menu on the site to convert to $CDN as well.

    BE the change you want to see.

    ThanX, I did not take the time to look around that much but will have to again.

    Looks to be “one stop shopping” for Japanese tools. If I knew more about them, I’d be all over that site like a fat kid on a Smartie. From what I can see, they are a little over half the price of similar offering from LV.

    yah they do ship, i bought my rasp from them, the japanese style rasp is amazing to use and its a key feature when I need to rasp some curves into wood like a bow. They do sell a majority of LV tools and some that LV doesn’t offer, the rasp I bought was sold by LV with a secondary handle that goes on top where I wanted one that was a single handle like a regular file.

    I knew the bottom of a Japanese chisel and plane blade was hollow ground but I didn’t know why. This explains the principle and demonstrates how the hollow is maintained.

    Reduced surface area. They use the same idea for the bottom of the planes.

    ThanX for the video @smallerstick, more and more am I fascinated by the Japanese hand tools.

    Maybe someone in Toronto can check this store out. They import saws direct from Japan

    http://www.tatami.ca/japanese-carpentry-saws

    I can’t see in their photos who manufactures the saws but they say they carry regular and pro grade saws

    The other place that I was told about was in Montreal and has the Japan Woodworker saws. They didn’t have prices on their web site so I didn’t put much effort into contacting them

    http://www.gentmantel.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2&zenid=cfe8f0f634efcdabb5f399dd1d9d1e5a

    And you can get the Japan Woodworker saws out of the States

    Our local tool store has some Japanese saws in stock and once a year they have a rep come in to the big HeMan Sale and at that time we can try out the different saws. Also at that time he has a lot bigger stock on hand to sell.

    Gentmantel is lousy. Nothing on the floor to look at, no customer service, everything filthy and covered in dust, and just a bunch of regulars chatting up the girl behind the counter.

    Prices are about double everywhere else too

    Despite all that, its the only place in town (that I know of) where I can get a table saw blade sharpened, so Ive been there more often than I would like

    That would be a nice selection to have in a store nearer to me.

    Yes,, that was the local store and the franchise store WoodCraft also has a nice amount of Japanese saws. The Japanese people may make up our largest ethnic group over here.

    Nice selection there. With a lot of Japanese ancestry on the island I bet the stores carry a lot of Japanese crafted tools. Nice.

    maybe sometime i am downtown I can make the trip down to the Toronto store and see what they have, i am unsure if i need a appointment to see the tools as they want you to make appointments to see their other stock.
