Among the Japanese tools saws highlight. Their main difference is that they are used by pulling them, not pushing, which translates into some great advantages: it takes less effort to hold the piece and the blade can be much thinner, thanks to this the effort to handle the tool is smaller and cuts are very fine and clean, as they do not tear the wood fiber.
Japanese saws are characterized by the perfection of his cuts. Unlike Westerners, in Japanese saws the blade has to be replaced, not sharpened. Its manufacturing system and cutting system (hardened teeth), makes pressure not to be necessary at the time of sawing, which helps the blade to last longer.
All in all, a Japanese saw works so smoothly that it almost seems an extension of the hand, resulting in a smooth, clean cut with barely possibility of deformation.
