Japanese Super Fine-Cut Saw

About This Item

Precision cuts for braces, nut blanks and more!

The finely-crafted, astonishingly thin .0075" alloy steel blade on this featherweight mini backsaw is just right for short close-tolerance cuts: making perfect joints for braces, trimming nut blanks, making crack repair cleats, violin work, and more. This precision is possible because, unlike Western saws, the traditional Japanese-cut teeth work on the pull stroke. This helps keep the ultra-thin blade taut for a smoother, more accurate, jam-free cut.

Comfortable bamboo handle and rigid steel spine.

Cutting edge: 2-5/16" (58.74mm)
Cutting depth: 1/2" (12.70mm)
Handle length: 5-1/16" (128.59mm)

Perfect for the delicate work....

...but be careful to not attempt any (relatively) "heavy" work, as there's a danger of flexing & creasing the thin blade. When used as intended, it's a wonderful little saw. I found the handle to be a bit long for my personal tastes, so I shortened it by 1-1/2" and the balance seems better. All-in-all, a good value and a quality tool.

I keep finding new uses for this little thing. Very fine kerf (mine measures only .008, the thickness of about about three hairs?!), super sharp, long lasting blade that cuts on the pull stroke. This may fall more in the realm of magic than craft.. almost feels like cheating. shhh...

I needed to do an ultra fine cut on some Madagascar Ebony - a very expensive piece - not a fun task to botch up, but with the saw and also *very important* the saw lubricant I purchased from Stew Mac, I nailed this tricky job in less than 1 minute - and it was perfect. Thanks StewMac - you are the best in the business.

My New Fav Little Saw

By

Verified Buyer


I received my new japanese Super Fine-cut Saw from StewMac a few weeks ago and have had plenty of opportunities to put it through its paces. It is indeed a very sharp saw, and capable of very fine and accurate cutting. It cuts as well as I hoped and expected. I've used it for trimming brace ends on tops and backs, as well as for trimming some bindings. The only thing that kept this at a 4-star rating instead of a 5 is the handle. I wish it had a slightly heavier handle. As is, it just seems too light weight. Perhaps a heavier wood would have been better. A little more length to the handle would not be amiss either. I also think that due to the nature of how this saw is used, a handle that was angled slightly upward to give some hand clearance over the work would be a good improvement. All that said, I really like the blade on it, and will probably replace the handle on mine with ebony or something a bit heavier. If I can bend the tang of the blade back at an angle, I may do that as well.
