Japanese Curved-edge Mini Saw

About This Item

Precise spot cutting and fret slot cleaning. A handy alternative for short close-tolerance cuts where a straight blade would cause damage.

The compact curved cutting edge on this little pull-stroke backsaw makes it a good choice for precisely trimming installed braces and cleaning fret slots over a guitar body. Unlike Western saws, the traditional Japanese-cut teeth work on the pull stroke. This helps keep the thin blade taut for a smooth, accurate jam-free cut.

Sharp 2-5/8" x 7/8" x .0085" alloy steel blade (66.68mm x 22.22mm x .216mm) with rigid steel spine and wooden handle.

Exactly what I hoped for.

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this saw to make it easier to set the back braces into the back reinforcement strip—without sawing into the back. The curved blade makes this easier than using a standard craft saw. In addition, this saw is more precise for trimming the ends of the braces. The compact size and sturdy cover make it easy to protect and stow.

With its curve shape and its thin teeth, this saw is the perfect tool for the small cuts. Must to have.

A fantastic saw

2 years on and i'm still loving this saw and use it with every build-
This picture better illustrates why it is good. You can use the light to perfectly see when you are about to touch the back/top wood when trimming a brace.

Perfect for trimming brace ends on the soundboard

I have been cutting brace ends on soundboards with the ends of other saws since I first started. This saw is a MUCH better tool for the job. It is sharp & makes trimming such things so easy and clean.

The first saw I reach for these days!

The shop where I work picked up one of these saws recently. We already have a collection of other small saws, including a couple bigger pull-saws and StewMac's little double-sided Japanese Fret Slot saw. But more and more, I find myself going for this little curved-edge saw for smaller manual-cutting jobs. It's the right width for fret slots, and the curved edge is great for things like trimming the ends of braces that are already glued into a guitar top or back.
