The ultimate smooth cutting experience.

Handmade Japanese saws are the product of a highly evolved form of blacksmithing. The blades are forged flat and tensioned by hand, if you look closely you may still be able to see tiny hammer marks in the blade surface. After through hardening, the blades are scraped to selectively taper the blade away from the tooth line. The teeth are filed and sharpened by hand and the resulting cutting action is nothing short of exquisite.

These are tools that need to be used gently, with care and respect. Once you are comfortable using replaceable blade saws and can use them with calm confidence and accuracy, these are the next logical progression.

Our handmade Japanese saws are made by Hishika in Miki city and have been produced using traditional techniques but with western woodworkers in mind, the teeth are shaped and hardened to suit the tasks of cutting furniture sized dovetails and tenons in European hardwoods.
