Japanese woodworking saws (Noko Giri) are unique in that they cut on the pull stroke. This gives the woodworker a degree of control and accuracy impossible to obtain with Western â€œpushâ€ type saws. Because the blade is in tension during use, it can be thin and hard. This means a very sharp edge and exceedingly thin kerf. Ryoba Noko Giri are the mainstay of the Japanese woodworker. They have cross-cut teeth on one side and rip teeth on the other. Ideal for fine work associated with furniture and cabinet-making. Blade length: 9-1/2″Cross-cut: 14 tpi Rip: 7 tpi
