Description

In Detail

Carefully selected for us by a famous Japanese carpenter. The blades of these particular saws are replaceable and are held securely in the wrapped handle by a simple screw. One edge has teeth for ripping, with smaller teeth near the handle to use when starting the cut, before bringing the full effective edge to bear on the workpiece. The other edge has crosscut teeth which produce a wonderfully clean cut surface. The centre of the blade is scraped to be thinner than the edges to prevent binding in a deep cut. The word 'replaceable' might conjure up an image of a mass produced item. In actual fact every blade is checked and hand finished before leaving the manufacturer. These saws are made for the professional Japanese market so there is no compromise on quality.

Nice saw but takes some getting used to

I've owned this saw for about 5 years now. I find the saw more difficult to cut accurately with than a western saw but nonetheless enjoy the challenge of using it. Interestingly the kerf on the ripping edge gradually became narrower until the saw would bind horribly when using that edge, although the crosscut edge has continued to cut nicely despite a few broken teeth. This caused me a lot of frustration - eventually I increased the set on the ripping edge teeth and it's function has been restored. The saw has remained sharp for a long time.

best saw ever, just don' t hurry

As for work done per effort put in, you can' t go better than these. I' ve been using the Ryoba Seiun 270 for several years with the same blade on. I used it for a variety of jobs, eg very precise cuts for musical instruments but it will just as easily prune olive trees; I used one in 2005 when I visited Mexico to save the wood of valuable trees downed by hurricane Wilma at Puerto Molrelos botanical gardens; and it cut through wood harder than Ebony -- Cuban oysterwood to be exact --without any bending of the cut. In fact I cut several slabs from the length of stem presented to me there, to make seats for hot earthenwareon the table. The cut produced is exceptionally smooth. And how is this done? Not by force, I can assure you. Just let the saw do the work, keep drawing and you' ll be surprised to see how rapid your cut will be. Being a wood specialist and having working for universities and botanical gardens I' ve a large experience cutting wood, but hardly as pleasurable as this one!

Very good but requires careful use and storage

I've had the smaller version for 5 years now, the price has almost tripled in that time!. It hasn't had heavy use in that time as i use disposable saws for most rough timber and site jobs, but it's still very sharp despite a couple nicked teeth.

As with any premium tool, it needs to be used properly (with care) and stored carefully too. I had this stored in my toolbox for a while with the handle still on - and the blade got bent. It's a ver slight, light curve, not badly kinked or anything like that but it means it's now virtually impossible to make a straight cut on anything but short cross-cuts, and since the steel is so hard I haven't been able to bend the blade true.

If used and stored properly this is a great tool and will provide a long service life, but not one to leave lying around or treat roughly.

Ok but snapped two blades

Not really worth the money. I agree when its cuts its a great finish but I snapped two blades it got jammed at the wrong point and snapped left me high and dry on a job. I may have used it incorrectly, accordingly to the geeks out there but its a saw for cutting wood.
at that price it should come with an instruction manual.

Incredible

Suddenly ripping and cross-cutting became a pleasure. The flexibility of the blade takes a little getting used to but the action of pulling for the cut is easy, the blade cuts true, and the sawn face is so smooth it looks as if it has been well sanded! It is the 'samurai' blade in my workshop!
