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 270mm Onikatana is a very large saw that is well suited to ripping and crosscutting large stock. It's incredibly sharp teeth are sized to take big bites, speeding up stock dimensioning without compromising accuracy of cut.
The Onikatana's high quality means that it will retain its edge even through long periods of use. We stock replacement blades for the onikatana in this size here.

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 recyclable 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.
Breakage in shipping policy:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

Your input is very much appreciated. Share it with your friends so they can enjoy it too!
The saw performed excellently in pine and also hardwood. It was very easy to control given my limited experience with woodworking. I’m impressed with the saw and would recommend it to people I speak to.
It is lovely to use and cuts very straight.
It is great to cut any depth because it is backless.
I found the kerf a bit more than I expected and left a rougher surface than I imagined, but I am still learning to use it.
