7
$32 AUD

This blade is excellent for making precise cuts in timber in any grain direction. The unique teeth design and spacing allows for ripping, cross cutting and diagonal cutting. As the blade is impulse hardened, this results in having longer lasting sharp teeth.

Specifications: Kerf: 0.6 mm Blade Length: 270 mm Blade Width: 60 mm Cross Cut Teeth: 1 mm Setting: 0.75 mm Use: precision work, thin cuts. Leaves a very fine cut surface.

Recommended Handle: 215mm Long Straight

The KAKURI Fine Cut Saw Series have been designed to allow equal versatility of its tools and uses. Every blade and handle in the series is completely interchangeable to enable the craftsman the ability to customize the entire range of Japanese pull saws to suit each specific purpose.

Each blade in this series is made to the highest quality using only Japanese or Swedish steel. These metals are highly regarded and are used by professional craftsmen around the world. Some of the fine tooth blades are hand filed, giving you the accuracy and ease of cutting in every pull of the saw. The handle mechanism to hold the blade is uniquely streamlined to eliminate any chance of the latch getting in the way of your material.

The Kakuri Fine Cut Saw Series delivers versatility and quality in tools used by fine craftsmen for the trades of boat builders and shipwrights, makers of musical instruments, cabinet-makers, box makers, carpenters and in joinery.

Plastic-free Policy:

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.

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 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.

Sorry, we can't exchange gift cards.

First rate product

I have had my Kakuri kit for about 6 years and look forward to any excuse to us it. For the 1st time I have replaced my Universal blade and taken the opportunity to add a couple of others. The ordering process and delivery was swift and first class. I use my saws at a boat building project at Lara Secondary college and the year 9 boys who participate are fascinated by and prefer to use my Japanese tools.

Kakuri Universal Blade 270mm

Useful all round blade. I haven't found a Kakuri saw blade yet that I haven't liked.

A true all-rounder.

So called 'universal' tools rarely live up to their name, one tends to end up with a product that does most of what it claims but none of it all that well. That isn't the case for the Kakuri 270mm universal blade, it does everything it claims to do to a very high level. In a recent fit out I had to cut through 70mm LVL, trim plywood and make a variety of cuts into hardwoods and the saw went through all of it like butter. It's a great saw, heartily recommended, I only wish I had discovered it years ago!
