Nakaya Ryoba Saw, Professional Onikatana 240mm

14
$135 AUD

The Onikatana is a premium Ryoba saw made from high-quality Swedish steel with a proprietary hard chrome plating. Echoing the fabled swords of the Samurais that it is named after, this superb tool combines traditional graduated tooth sizing on both blades with the best materials to deliver a fantastically sharp, incredibly precise and extremely versatile saw.

The 240mm Onikatana is an intermediate saw that can be used to rip and cross-cut in the dimensioning of boards, and can also be pressed into service on larger joinery. It's graduated teeth make commencing cuts easy and allows the user to place the beginning of the kerf exactly where it is required.

The Onikatana's precision-cut teeth are hardened and not able to be resharpened, however it's high quality means that it will retain its edge even through long periods of use. We stock replacement blades for the oniktana in this size here.

Specifications:

  • Blade Length: 240 mm
  • Overall Length: 600 mm
  • Blade Thickness: 0.6 mm
  • 20 Teeth per 30 mm Cross-cut
  • 9 Teeth per 30 mm Rip-cut

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recycleable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

We stand behind the quality of our tools. If a tool is found to be faulty or damaged in transit, we will verify the issue with you, and offer a refund or exchange when the problem is brought to our attention within 30 days from purchase. If problems arise outside of this period this policy will apply at our discretion. Where a refund or exchange is agreed upon, we will mail you a paid addressed bag to return your items, verify their condition once we receive them, and then process a refund or mail the new item.

If a tool is purchased as a present or the purchaser changes their mind, we will exchange for stock of equal value or store credit when we are contacted within 2 weeks of the purchase. We ask that the customer covers the cost of shipping in these instances. We will take a payment for shipping over the phone, send you a paid addressed envelope, verify the goods' condition once we receive them, and then mail the new item.

If a tool is damaged through improper use, we encourage you to contact us. We may not be able to exchange the tool, but may be able to offer advice on technique or recommend a more appropriate tool. Where possible, we encourage our cutomers to ask us questions about our tools' use before they purchase them. We can be contacted at info@japanesetools.com.au or 02 9527 3870.

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

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

Fantastic

First time with a Japanese saw, never to go back to Western style again. What a difference a tool can make! Long handle to guide cut, with greater precision, thin blade, rip and cross-cut in one tool, light weight saw: I never thought I could enjoying sawing. And good services. Very pleased
