Japanese Hassunme Saw RIPPING is a light weight and efficient saw. Its super thin blade produces a superb finish and a very thin kerf (saw cut)
Ripping blades are designed to cut down the grain.
Japanese saws cut on the draw-stroke, cutting as the user pulls, totally the opposite to a traditional western saw.
Once familiar with this pull-only draw-stroke action, they are remarkable.
These blades will keep their sharpness for a long time if used in clean wood. Kept in a sheath when not in use.
Genuine Z-Saw brand
Replacement blades are available.
Blade 0.5mm thick and 250mm (10″) long.
TPI (Teeth Per Inch): near the handle there are 11 tpi (making the start of a cut far easier.) and towards the front of the blade there are 8 (slightly larger) tpi.
Japanese Hassunme Saw RIPPING will also take the Hassunme CROSS-CUT blade.
