Ryoba Saw

I love this saw, use it lots and find that it gets used in preference to a drop saw for low volume work.

Hi Peter, We're thrilled that the Onikatana has given you a pleasant surprise. It is an excellent tool and we're sure you'll find plenty of use for it. If you find Japanese pull saws enjoyable to work with, our dozuki saws are also worth a look for the cutting of fine joinery. We always love to see what people make with our tools, if you'd like to share feel free to email us or tag @japanese_tools_australia on instagram. Wishing you happy woodworking, The JTA Team

Fine saws

Bought the saws and did not expect how precise and clean the cuts made by the saws. They are now my everday saws. Good bye western style saw!

240mm Nakay Onikatana Ryobya Saw

Christian was really helpful in giving me fantastic user advice on what saw would be best suited to my needs. This Saw cuts just as expected clean, accurate and fast its a great tool to use. It took me a bit to get used to the rip side but once I got a feel for it it cut fast and clean. I ripped a 19mm x 100mm x 500mm American Oak board into two 8mm x 100mm boards with ease much to my surprise. Its now the saw I reach for every time I need a quick clean cut. Once again fantastic service from Christian and great product. I highly recommend this saw for any one wanting good quality Japanese tools. Kate Adamson, Horse and Kart Woodworks
