Gikoh Ryoba Saws
The Gikoh Ryoba offers an affordable Japanese pull saws that can meet the unique demands of your workshop. Every saw blade is made with high-carbon tool steel that goes through an impulse hardening process to achieve excellent sharpness and durability.
These lightweight pull saws require less force than Western push saws. By cutting on the pull stroke, the blade does not need as much rigidity (blade thickness). This results in a thinner kerf, less arm fatigue, and improved precision, no matter your experience with woodworking.
Purchased the canvas roll for chisels for my new chisel. Really well made , convenient and protects, the chisels from damage and me from the very sharp chisels. With a pocket for each chisel finding the right one quickly is a convenient discipline. Highly recommended
Such beautiful work has gone into creating these chisels I feel compelled to respect them in the woodcarvings I create - thank you for the opportunity to use such fine tools,
very sharp, but handle short
Absolutely fantastic, I now own the whole range & my co-workers also have bought them now.
Well made, looks good and works well......Love it.
It arrived today and already has proven invaluable.
Cuts on the pull stroke and just "eats" small branches.
Best gardening tool and oriental tool that I have used. It
is light and easy on the hands and great at pulling weeds, even
weeds in the lawn.
These boxes are awesome. I’m a teacher, learning designer and my expensive HP-15C Calculator fits just perfectly in this box. Like it was made for it. Simply awesome! The quality of these boxes is amazing. I now know that my expensive HP calculator will be protected for years and years to come. I highly recommend these boxes for professionals as they will protect your gear (whatever you have) forever. Luv ‘em.
The scissors look excellent - functional and very practical. As they are a Christmas present I am unable to give a review at the moment. As with all the JTA products, they will be good. 😀
Love this! Use for cutting grass, lucerne for horses and for slicing through weeds when they get high. Nice and sharp, easy to use. Highly recommend.
I’m not sure why these rules are so clear and easy to read however they are so much better than the ones I used before. Would recommend them to all.
Looks beautiful and is very high quality. These saws are now my go to. Excellent service as always it’s never taken more than 4 days for anything to arrive.
These are beautiful bits to use. I am currently working a project requiring clean and very accurate holes. These bits really do the job. The brad point is easy to position accurately and tracks precisely. The very sharp cutting surface make a very clean hole with very little breakout. The bits are a bit shorter than you might expect, but this has not yet been a problem in my project.
Purchased a "large size" glove, they are a very tight fit.
For Aussie hands the gloves should be larger.
