The Osaehiki saw is a specialist saw designed to make the relief cuts that form the blade-holding channels in a Japanese plane block.
This saw's requirements are specific to its use. It is stiffer than a flush cut saw, though it shares a similar tooth geometry with minimal set. The saw plate is also not too tall, to allow it fit through the mouth of a plane as it makes it's cut.
Hishika is a renowned saw maker that preserves high levels of skill and handwork in the setting and cutting of its saws. For those looking to dip their toe in the world of Japanese plane making, no finer tool can be found for this specialist yet key application in the block-making process.
