Best Japanese Saw UK Reviews

Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews on the best Japanese saws that are currently available on the United Kingdom marketplace.

Japanese saws are sometimes called pull saws, and they can have blades on both sides. One side is a ripping blade, and the other side is a cross cutting blade. The blades are very thin and so cuts are much neater and precise.

These work on a pull stroke, and that does take some practice to get used to. There is really little difference from a western type pull saw, maybe just a different style of handle and the Japanese saws look quite fancy. They both do exactly the same job.

The ripping blade is designed to cut along the grain of the wood, and can even be used to cut through hard woods. The crosscutting blade is more precise the the ripping blade when cutting perpendicular to the grain of the wood.

In Conclusion

I have to tell you that I love these Japanese saws, which are very good for making accurate and fine cuts. Typically they can be used to do picture rails and skirting boards. They are useful also for certain hobbies where the fine cutting or wood is required as you get a more accurate cut by pulling a saw, rather than pushing it.

There is a strange fascination with these Japanese saws. Everybody who has one seems to just love it. I guess they are brilliant for some fiddly or hard to reach jobs. Jobs that an ordinary saw just cant get to.

As far as I am concerned, you cant go wrong with any of the saws listed in our top 5. Though for some reason, I think it was just the feel of it, my favourite was the Roamwild Multi Saw.

Hopefully you have found this information on Japanese saws useful.
