Bakuma Hunter
Folding Saw

Our go-to saw for general garden use - perfect for shrubs and light tree work.

More Information

Cracking Japanese folding saw from Bakuma, in Niigata up in the North of Japan - it cuts on the pull, like all Japanese saws, which makes cutting easier and leaves a cleaner finish. Perfect for all garden jobs and light tree work. Nice rubbery handle & blade locking system. This has recently become Jake’s first choice saw: it’s big enough for some quite serious stuff, and the chunky rubber handle gives you a lot of control over the action - but it’s also small enough for regular garden pruning.

Fits into the Saw Holster, or the Double Holster.


    Go easy with Japanese saws - don’t twist or snag the blade, and cut on the pull stroke.

    Saw Care

    Japanese Pruning Saws are great. They cut on the pull stroke, not the push, which means the blade is under less pressure when cutting, and uses less energy, resulting in a far cleaner, faster cut. They whizz through green wood, but the blades are more fragile than traditional western saws and incorrect use can result in damage.

    • Use a smooth, gentle sawing action, doing the cutting on the pull, and gliding back on the push
    • Don’t let the weight of the branch pinch or catch the blade
    • Don’t twist the blade while sawing
    • Don’t use a small saw for a large job. Treat 1/3 of the length of the blade as the absolute maximum sensible cutting diameter
    • Don’t use a large saw for a small job. A 12" blade will happily cut a 1/2" branch, providing the branch is rigid - but most 1/2" branches move around a lot, and don’t allow for accurate sawing. Use Secateurs or Loppers instead
    • Don’t blame us if you snap the blade. Blades snap through misuse and poor handling, neither of which are covered under the warranty!
