Japanese saw design and quality meet western preferences for a solid wooden handle and a weightier, yet well balanced, feel in this outstanding range of saws from Gyokucho in Japan.

At first glance two dozukis and a kataba make a rather unusual set, but when you consider western dovetail, carcase and panel saws, the roles are very similar.

The kataba will size panels with remarkable accuracy and efficiency, the dozuki super hard is a dedicated crosscut saw used for cutting components to length, halving joints, tenon shoulders etc, and the universal dozuki is a fine smooth cutting saw for dovetails and intricate joinery.

All three saws feature selected quartersawn beech handles, heavier spines for balance, and a smooth, positive folding mechanism with a locking lever to hold the blade in the extended position.

Regular price of purchased separately: £137.50

The word Fugaku is another name for Mount Fuji, a cultural and spiritual icon recognised throughout Japan and the world.

    Fantastic set of saws for a multitude of uses Positive locking action when in use Added bonus of folding for storage or transportation Far better finish than the standard throwaway saw Quite nice to look at when not in use
