The KAKURI 'GIKOH' Ryoba Saw is a woodworking / carpentry saw with two cutting edges. It is used to cut joints and is very useful for its ability to cut flat, or to bend the blade at the most suitable angle. It includes a rip saw blade on one side and a cross-cutting blade on the other side. The blade is replaceable, using the same mechanism as all KAKURI woodworking saw blades. The long rattan handle ensures ease of use.
