Changing a Hassunme blade couldn't be easier; gently tap the back of blade on a block of wood until it comes loose. Remove the old blade, insert the new one into the holder and tap the back of the holder on the block to seat the blade. These blades are 0.5mm thick blade, 250mm long for effortless ripping of long boards or crosscutting, leaving a smooth finish on end grain.

Second bladeHere I am buying my second blade of this make and type. It is really quite (and I hate the word...) awesome! I ruined the last blade hitting a nail in a door. All the work the saw and I did until then was excellent. Once you've tried a Japanese saw I doubt you'll go back. I wouldn't.

The best saw to be found.I do not know of a better handsaw but there is an art to using it - you must resist pushing the blade as you would with a western saw. On the backstroke, it pulls itself into the cut so you need apply very little pressure. Make sure that you have the cut started correctly because you cannot steer the blade - it will continue in the starting direction giving you a beautiful flat surface. At all costs avoid nails - one kiss of a nail and you have killed the blade. If the blade ever gets bowed -throw it away or use it for non-essential cutting jobs.

Hassunme rip bladeThis blade takes a little getting used to, but like the crosscut blade it cuts true and straight. I've found it useful for cutting tenons when a band saw isn't available
