This pro series saw is perfect to cut joints using an angle mag or a magnetic dovetail guide as it has no spine. This blade has been traditionally tempered by hand and hand finished to make it perfectly flat. The steel starts of at 1mm thick and is then ground to 0.3mm.
This method is the way a saw was traditionally made in Japan. The 1mm thickness allows the neck of the saw to remain stiff when in use.
As with all our saws, the blade is replaceable at $80.
