Kanejun Ryoba
Japanese Woodworking Saw

Hand made, double edged carpenter’s saw.

More Information

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.

    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!
