The performance of this impressive little dozuki saw lives up to its fine appearance. It is compact yet functional, with a comfortable beech wood handle, nice balance, and an even cutting action. It has ripping teeth that work efficiently without compromising the quality of the cut. A small bevel at the tip of each tooth shears the wood fibers; this enhances the saw's smooth feel and allows it to produce satisfactory crosscuts.
This saw can be used for cutting tenon shoulders or haunches as well as dovetails. 13 1/2" overall, it has an 18 tpi blade that is 6 1/4" long, with a maximum cutting depth of 1 1/4". The spine is slightly arched to provide additional stiffness since the blade cuts a kerf only 0.015" wide.
