Tool Focus: Japanese Pull-Saw
09 . 11 . 21
Many of the best woodworking tools that money can buy are produced in Japan. The Japanese pull-saw is no exception and those that hang on our workshop walls here at Otter see some heavy use when making our wooden surfboards and other water craft. The ryoba saw, shown in the photos here, is a double edged saw with ripping teeth on one side for cutting with the grain, and cross-cutting teeth on the other side for cutting across the grain.
