I’ve long been a fan of Japanese hand saws. Using a pull-stroke cutting action, thinner more flexible blades, and a stick handle design, Japanese saws have a lot going for them, but they have not achieved wide acceptance among Western woodworkers. Now DeWalt has introduced a line of three new hand saws that marry some of the best features of Japanese-style saws to some modern innovations that should improve their appeal to North American woodworkers.
