Niwaki Folding Saw

Perfect for garden pruning and light tree work.

With a chunky, sturdy rubber handle and 21cm blade that easily cuts branches up to around 7cm diameter, this is the ideal size to carry with you at all times - it fits very nicely in the Double Holster with a pair of Secateurs, or on its own in the Saw Holster.

As with all Japanese saws, it has a narrow blade for efficient sawing, and cuts on the pull stroke - go easy, and don’t twist or snag the blade. Pruning is not about strength or energy, it’s about care - positioning, precision and rhythm, about feeling what you’re doing, responding to the situation, rather than bulldozing through. 

Saw Care:

Japanese Pruning Saws are great. They cut on the pull stroke, not the push, which means the blade is under less pressure when cutting, and uses less energy, resulting in a far cleaner, faster cut. They whizz through green wood, but the blades are more fragile than traditional western saws and incorrect use can result in damage.

  • Use a smooth, gentle sawing action, doing the cutting on the pull, and gliding back on the push
  • Don’t let the weight of the branch pinch or catch the blade
  • Don’t twist the blade while sawing
  • Don’t use a small saw for a large job. Treat 1/3 of the length of the blade as the absolute maximum sensible cutting diameter
  • Don’t use a large saw for a small job. A 12" blade will happily cut a 1/2" branch, providing the branch is rigid - but most 1/2" branches move around a lot, and don’t allow for accurate sawing. Use Secateurs or Loppers instead
  • Don’t blame us if you snap the blade. Blades snap through misuse and poor handling, neither of which are covered under the warranty!
