JS-1 Dozuki Back Saw

JS-1 Dozuki Back Saw

Product Review (submitted on December 23, 2011):

I didn't think a hand saw could produce such a clean cut.

Leaving aside the whole issue of cutting perfectly square to the edge and perpendicular to the face of the board; If I use care in executing my saw strokes well, I can pretty much count on not needing to even touch the end of the board with a plane to remove tooth marks as they don't exist. No hand saw that I have ever used can touch it.

IMO- the only question is whether or not you want to purchase & use the Western-style push-cut saw or the Japanese pull-style, but you just can't compare their respective out-of-the-box quality of cut … in particular at this price point!
