The NAKAYA Dozuki Saw is a woodworking / carpentry saw with a very thin 0.2mm blade for precision work. The spine of the blade has a stiffening rib which enhances the precision cutting ability. This gives the blade a maximum depth of cut of up to 40mm. The blade is made from Swedish Steel with 36 teeth per 30mm that are impulse hardened for longer use.
The blade is replaceable and the saw comes with a wooden handle, wrapped in rattan. It is ideal as a cross-cut saw for fine work on furniture, instruments and box making.
The saw is supplied by KAKURI, but please note that the mechanism to attach the blade to the handle is different from KAKURI saws.
