This professional-grade non-replaceable blade saw is excellent for dovetailing and fine joinery. It is the fastest-cutting dozuki we sell but still leaves a smooth surface. For best results, hold the saw near the end of the handle (as far away from the blade as possible). Pull with long, smooth strokes, using the entire blade length. The return stroke should be made with no downward pressure. The fixed blade is 0.011" thick, with 28 tpi, and is 9 3/4" long, with an overall saw length of 23 5/8". Hard chrome finish for longer wear and reduced friction. Made in Japan.
