The Gyokucho 180 Series of small professional quality Japanese saws are made to the same exacting standards as their larger counterparts. Perfect for toolbox use – giving you the same Gyokucho accuracy you enjoy in the workshop in situations where you have to take the tools to the job. They are also excellent saws for younger woodworkers, efficient, easy to control, and very precise.
The 297 compact Dozuki is a dedicated dovetail saw for fine accurate joinery, the blade is just 0.3mm thick with 1mm tooth spacing (26tpi) and has a full length back that supports the blade right to the tip. It will happily cut dovetails in hardwoods up to 12mm (1/2”) thick or as thin as 3mm (1/8”).
The sturdy evagrip handles are made from a specially developed plastic that is hard and durable, yet feels soft and grippy to the touch. With appropriate care the nickel plated blades last for a very long time, it is not uncommon for us to supply first replacement blades for Gyokucho saws between 7 and 15 years old.
