Types of handsaws

Japanese handsaws are available in a variety of configurations, to suit the type of work being conducted.  If you're confused as to which saw best fits the work you are conducting, we've included some notable examples below.

Dozuki

Kataba

Ryoba

Dozuki saws have a reinforced back. This design minimizes blade flex, allowing for more accurate cuts. This saw is ideal for cutting dovetails and other fine joinery work.

Kataba saws typically have relatively large teeth with wide spacing. This design allows for efficient and fast cutting through wood. The large teeth help prevent binding and make removal of wood child's play. The lack of a reinforced back also allows for a more flexible blade. This saw is available in ripcutting, crosscutting and hybrid configurations.

The most distinctive feature of a ryoba saw is its dual-sided blade. One side of the blade is designed for crosscutting, while the other side is intended for rip cutting. This eliminates the need to switch between different saws for various cutting tasks, making the ryoba saw a versatile option.
