Z-Saw 250mm Ryoba Japanese Saw
Ryoba Saws are by far the most versatile Japanese Saw. Ideal for deep cuts both across and with the grain. The crosscut edge has 18TPI and the rip edge 9TPI. The blades of all Z-Saws are made from polished cold rolled high carbon steel. The teeth are cut using a proprietary system using CBN grinding wheels. The teeth are then impulse hardened to HRC 64.0 to 68.2 which is the maximum hardness which can be achieved on steel. The blade is .5mm and 250mm long. The blade is easily removed with a tap on the end of the handle. Remember that these saws cut on the pull stroke using gravity to assist in the cutting stroke instead of using your weight as you would with a standard saw. This will allow you to work longer with less fatigue.
