This folding saw is high quality, Japanese made. Supplied by specialist stockist Niwaki, bringing traditional Japanese household and garden ware items to the west. These carefully made products are designed to last a life time.
A lovely little folding saw for fine pruning jobs in the garden, with a specially shaped beechwood handle and a simple locking device to keep the blade in place.
Ibara-me teeth are angled to cut both along and across the grain, giving a very fast, efficient action. Cuts on the pull stroke, like all Japanese saws.
Fits nicely in the Saw Holster or snuggled up with a pair of secateurs in the Double.
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!
