Beast of a saw! Review by Asa
Rating
Another excellent saw from gyokucho! The crosscut side of this is great for breaking down big stock and the rip side is excellent for re-sawing medium to small sized boards. I've been resawing 3" Sapele and European Ash today and this saw whizzed through both.
While heavier, and with a slightly thicker plate than most other Gyokucho saws, it still keeps a much thinner kerf than western equivalents and requires very little effort
Like other Japanese saws the trick is to keep the saw at a lower angle to the work piece. For resawing I set the wood at a 45 degree angle away from me, and keep the saw horizontal pulling towards me. I find keeping the saw at least 45 degrees or lower to the work means I get a decent amount of wood removed while still keeping an accurate line.
Paired with my 651 blue hard ryoba for most of my smaller stock and larger joinery, and 372 for fine joinery and dovetails, I really struggle to think of another hand saw that I could want!

And of course, workshop heaven's fantastic service as always! (Posted on 01/05/2019)
Big saw with a surprisingly fine cut Review by Antony Barkas
Rating
This is my first proper Japanese saw, so take what follows based on that but I have other pull saws and know how to use one. This is a big saw, probably 2' 4"long, The quality of the steel and teeth look great and the ratten handle is very comfortable, giving access to several holding styles. The crosscut leaves surprisingly little tearout for the size of teeth, thin kerf and cutting straight is very easy if you just let yourself relax and not force anything. Ripping, I think this saw is super and a pleasure to use... i've not had a progressive-toothed rip saw before and it makes a noticeable difference to the ease and speed in this grain direction over other saws that have even teeth. This is definitely a fast saw for relatively large timber or boards. I think this is the kind of saw to take care of and have for years. (Posted on 08/03/2018)
