As well as having all the usual benefits of Japanese saws, the Hassunme saws also feature replaceable blades. Changing the blades could not be easier; gently tap the back of blade on a block of wood until the blade loosens, remove the old blade, insert a new one into the holder and tap the back of the holder on the block to seat the blade. The rip cut saw has a 0.5mm thick blade, 250mm long for effortless ripping of long boards.

hassunme rip sawI like using japanese tools, especially the saws. I have used one of these saws for rip sawing tenons in oak for timber framing studs and for cutting sheets of heavy ply for shuttering with equally pleasing results. It is nearly as fast as a power tool (allowing for set-up time) when you get the knack, especially when you just want to do a few cuts and a lot safer!
