Description
A Japanese capentry saw works when pulled. You don’t have to press down against the wood you are sawing; it saws effectively and easily because of the way the teeth are designed.

Users comments
The user, a former crafts teacher, loves his Japanese saw. It is very easy to handle and effective, it does not bend and does not get stuck in the wood. The user does not need to use much strength. It works when pulled toward the body, so it is much easier for the user to maintain balance than with a western saw.
