Yes, with caveat

This is a saw that a woodworker graduates to. I learned what not to do with less expensive Japanese saws; broke some teeth, kinked a blade and sliced some flesh. Then I sprang for this thing. At first I was dissapointed at what seemed to be a dullness of it but kept using it and somehow rather magically it came to life. Maybe I just had to grow into it, I don't know but I can cut very accurately across long spans and most importantly I can cut very square lines. I cut every bit of wood from felled tree to Scandinavian Cabinet Makers Bench with it. I spent a lot of time with this saw.
Sadly, this saw was stolen from me so I have to buy another, a testament to what an excellent saw it is.
I own this product.
