Review

I grew up using Western-style saws for hand work. But the first time I tried a Japanese hand saw, I couldn’t believe the difference.
Like all Japanese saws, this general-purpose model cuts on the pull stroke rather than the Western-style push, so it’s easier to start a cut and tracks straighter. Its thin blade flexes slightly for making flush cuts and leaves no errant scratches on the wood because the teeth have no set. Still, the blade is stiff enough to hold true for joinery cuts. I could probably never go back to the Western saws now gathering dust on my shelves. —Lucas Peters
