  1. Niwaki Sakimaru Saw

Niwaki Sakimaru Roughcut Saw
360mm

How can we say this nicely? It’s enormous. For rough work, ripping and diagonal sawing.

More Information

The SK-5 steel goes through the traditional heat treatment process of oil quenching, meaning the blades can be resharpened with the Saw File over time.

Once you’ve tried Japanese saws for woodworking, you’ll never look back - but a small degree of care and discipline is called for to get started, as with many Japanese tools. Handle carefully, saw in a smooth action, and avoid very hard woods.

Tips

    Handle carefully, use light pressure and don’t snag.

    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!
