Niwaki Daikiba Secateurs
Hand made, double edged carpenter’s saw.
Double sided Aogami carpenter’s saw, with finer teeth on one side for cross cutting, and bigger teeth on the other for ripping. Like all Japanese saws, the cutting is all done on the pull. The teeth get progressively smaller, and the pitch finer, nearer the handle, for starting off cuts. Traditional handle wrapped in bamboo. Once you’ve tried Japanese saws for woodworking, you’ll never look back.
Mitsukawa san makes these in his workshops in Miki city - each saw is machine cut, ground, polished and sharpened before being individually hand finished.
Treat your saws carefully - the teeth will chip if you chuck them about.

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.
