JAPANESE STYLE PULL SAW: This flush cut saw is a “Pull Saw.” Most people are used to European saws, called “push saws,” which cuts through a pushing motion. On the other hand, Japanese hand saws cut materials via pulling and are called “pull saws.” In comparison to “push saws,” this Japanese product is lighter in weight, requires less power, and results in a cleaner edge. JAPANESE STEEL: All SUIZAN Japanese saws consist of top quality Japanese steel. The high-quality steel makes razor sharp cuts. MADE IN JAPAN: All SUIZAN woodworking tools are manufactured in Japan by Japanese master craftsmen. The whole process of making these tools are completed in one of Japan’s towns known for its craft-making tradition with a history of over 100 years. BLADE FOR HARDWOOD AND SOFTWOOD: With this small hand saw, you can easily cut oak, sandalwood, ebony, mahogany, maple, walnut and pine with a robust blade for hardwood. The blade for softwood can be used for white cedar, Japanese cedar, larch, paulownia wood and many others. DIVERSIFY YOUR WOODWORKING LIFE: No matter if you are a master or a beginner, using traditional Japanese-style saws gives you a brand new experience and lets you make a wider range of woodworking products, thus changing your life!

    I’ve only used this saw a few times, but I can say it performs impressively well. I used it to trim an uneven rail on a cabinet face, and flush cut some dowels. Nice clean cuts easily done. Very sharp with a sturdy handle set. You wouldn’t want to saw down a cherry tree with it, but for precision cuts on both hard and soft woods it is quite acceptable and a good value for the dollar.

    This is the best tool I have ever found for cutting off teak bungs after the glue dries. Not a single mark on the surrounding wood and it cuts fast.With the saw in my right hand I lay it flat, press the teeth to the bung and then place two fingers from my left hand lightly on the centerline of the blade either side of the bung to gently keep the saw flat to the work.


    Works just like it should :)Great for guitarists needing to fill in screw/mounting holes with dowels and cutting them flush.Cheaper than buying from the standard guitar builders supplier, too.

    I needed a tool that coul cut a precise, clean horizontal cut for a kitchen cabinet project. After trying out the orbital cutter, which actually burned more than cut, took a long time and left a less than perfect cut, I conducted a little research on line and discovered the Japanese Pull Saw. For my application, this particular model seemed to be the perfect choice. Boy, was I correct! This thing is amazing! I started by practicing on a scrap of hard wood, as that would be the medium I would be working on. After the second try, I had it down. I just cut a third (see pics) for good measure. And then my final face frame of my kitchen cabinet. Now I use this for lots of projects. So happy with this tool. Gave one as a gift.

    I needed to make some pretty precise cuts in some thin wood. This saw is beautifully thin (probably thickness of a piece of paper) so cutting thin wood was no problem. It’s so thin that only a pulling motion to cut makes sense… the blade is very flexible because of its thinness. I’ve made about 30 linear feet of cuts in pine and rosewood. The teeth are still deadly sharp. I keep it in its plastic case when not in use to keep from slashing myself. I haven’t had to cut dowels flush to a surface yet, but I checked to see if the teeth would scratch the surface if I did… nope, the teeth are not angled out, so no scratching.Just a wonderful tool to have if you need thin, precise cuts.

    I bought this saw to trim off protruding dowels, and it works like a charm. With larger/stiffer saws I found there was always the risk of scratching the workpiece, but this saw is just right. The very flexible and shorter blade contribute to this excellent performance.It is not intended for cutting boards, etc.

  7. J. Pendzich

    I’m completely amazed at how effective a tool this little saw is.  It cuts the small pieces of wood that I use in making miniatures so smoothly, quickly and in just a few strokes, that I’m kicking myself for not getting these years ago.  You do have to use the tool correctly, by pulling only (one-way directional), and not sawing like you would use with a large lumber or tree saw.  But wow…it’s like butter when used compared to the cheap tools you usually get at the hardware store.  I just love this thing!  I’m delighted!

  8. Jon Ivan

    Has a thin curf and doesn’t leave any marks on the wood it’s laying against…

    Several people have complained that the blade bends. That is because it’s a very thin, flexible blade. As we say in the computer business, “it’s a feature, not a bug.”You can’t use it like a tenon or dovetail saw. If you apply pressure on the push stroke, the blade will bend. You have to apply pressure on the pull stroke. That way, you will get a flush cut without damaging the surface of the wood.It takes a little getting used to, but it’s prefect for trimming corner spline miter joints.

  10. DJDJ

    I used for cutting splines from mitered corners of wood boxes for Christmas gifts. The saw has both hard and soft wood sides and cuts really fast. Doesn’t scratch the wood even with a finger pressed to the side of the blade for close cuts that require very little sanding. It’s small, flexible, sharp, functional and inexpensive. I kept the plastic package and store it in, hanging on pegboard, protected. It’s inexpensive enough to buy a new one rather than replace the blade, though I cut multiple edges of multiple splines from 10+ boxes and it’s still razor sharp. I love good tools.
