An ideal addition to any tool box, this set of three compact saws comprises dozuki and kataba saws, both capable of starting and making mid panel cuts and a ryoba saw. By no means an essential tool box item, but these saws posess all the advantages of any pull saw but in minature. I'd never used a japanese saw before but once I got the hang of it, these are marvelous to use.
An excellent set of saws, the curved toes on the Kataba and Dozuki are particularly useful as I do much cut out work. Very versatile as well as extremely accurate, the German made Mini Ligno Duo not only measures moisture content in a vast array of hard and soft woods but also measures the moisture content of building materials such as concrete, plaster, screed and gypsum.

April 19, 2012 by tom 1 Comment I just received a letter from Richard Maguire in the UK and thrilled to report he has joined the online blogging community with his new blog The English Woodworker. You may remember seeing a guest blog here last year about one of Richards incredible workbenches.

The 1% for the Planet network brings together like-minded leaders who share a belief that business can be a vital catayst for positive environmental change. The overall design of the Japanese saws or "Noko Giri" differs greatly from the more familiar western style saws. The Japanese put great emphasis on balance in all areas of their life and their woodworking tools are no exception. Look at the shape and form of a Japanese saw and the handle is in perfect visual balance with the blade.


Hold the same saw in your hand and you realise that the balance of the tool is not purely cosmetic.
This makes the tool easier and more efficient to use and has a profound effect on your work. Japanese handsaws have one stand out difference from their western counterparts; they cut on the pull stroke rather than the push stroke. Due to this single fundamental difference, Japanese saws have blades that are thinner, lighter and cut much smoother and faster. As the action of pulling the saw keeps the blade in tension through the cut, the blade does not need to be as thick or as heavy as a push saw which requires the extra bulk to withstand the compressive force of the cut keeping the blade, and the resultant cut, straight.
