The Gyokucho 180 Series of small professional quality Japanese saws are made to the same exacting standards as their larger counterparts. Perfect for toolbox use – giving you the same Gyokucho accuracy you enjoy in the workshop in situations where you have to take the tools to the job. They are also excellent saws for younger woodworkers, efficient, easy to control, and very precise.
The 291 compact Ryoba is used for much the same work as a western tenon saw, it has progressive rip teeth on one edge and 1.5mm/17tpi crosscut teeth on the other – ideal for tenons, saddle joints, lap joints etc.
This new version has blue handles made from TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) a remarkable material that is simultaneously hard and resilient yet feels velvety to the touch and affords a superb grip. Rest assured that TPE is an eco-friendly alternative to rubber, and isn't harmful to the environment as it is completely recyclable.
With appropriate care the nickel plated blades last for a very long time, it is not uncommon for us to supply first replacement blades for Gyokucho saws between 7 and 15 years old.
