Nokogiri - Jyuntaro Mitsukawa III: Mitsukawa Ryoba #2 Hardwood (replaceable blade)

Go back to the Nokogiri Gallery main page.

Special machine-made hardwood saw with replaceable blade. It has hard-tempered but can also be sharpened with a diamond file. 180mm ryoba with 0.34mm kerf. 2.5mm pitch/10 tpi rip teeth and 25 tpi crosscut. I'm told by Hida Tool folks that this is a handmade saw, but the price point would indicate otherwise. In anycase, it's a really nice, sensitive saw good for detailed works. I use it for cutting dovetails and small joints. Hida Tool folks recommended to use this saw very gently. They had received complaints in the past that this saw breaks easily.

Size: 195mm
Teeth: 10 tpi rip, 22 tpi crosscut.
Blade Width: 2-3/4" toe, 2-1/4" heel. This blade is skinnier than the typical ryoba of the same size.
Steel Type: ???
