As is often the case with Japanese tools, the beauty of this saw lies in the simplicity of design and quality of workmanship. Robust in construction for long-term service, it is lightweight and balanced for comfortable use.
The saw is 12" long overall with a 5" Damascus-etched carbon-steel blade that cuts quickly and cleanly on the pull stroke and is taper ground to reduce binding. The oil-finished wenge handle has a lock to hold the blade open.
This saw is a pleasure to use and will be prized in any collection.
