Japanese saws cut on the pull stroke, not the push, giving you more control. The blades are thinner, meaning you get a thinner kerf (the cut) with less effort. Can't be bad. Bakuma's Tristar is the ideal saw for garden pruning when a folding saw wouldn't be big enough: selective coppicing, pruning out individual trunks of hazel or sweet chestnut coppice, and general shrub pruning.

Niwaki Tip: Always have a saw close to hand, so you're not tempted to overdo it with the secateurs.
