Katz-Moses Woodworking is a proud distributor of Suizan Japanese saws. This is the smaller 7 inch Ryoba Double Sided Hand Saw. This is my (Jonathan’s) personal favorite economical choice for all around hand sawing. I really like the fact you can do rip cuts along the grain (large tooth side) and cross grain cuts (fine tooth side). I also really like the thick, no slip polypropylene handle that adds weight to the saw, it’s razor thin kerf and sharp edge. Other saws have a bamboo handle which shows dirt easily and makes the saw significantly lighter and cut slower.
JAPANESE STEEL: All SUIZAN Japanese saws are made of top quality Japanese steel. It uses high quality Japanese steel, which makes cuts to be sharp.
MADE IN JAPAN: All SUIZAN products are manufactured in Japan by Japanese master craftsmen. Suizan has a 100 year old history of making Japanese hand tools.
