Handmade Saws

If you are a confident and experienced user of Japanese handsaws and work in a calm, relaxed, methodical way, these precision instruments will give you the most refined hand sawing experience possible.

The sawplates of Hishika handcrafted saws are fully hardened and therefore only recommended for those who already have some experience with using Japanese saws. The blades will flex but not to the same extent as a replaceable blade saw, and rather than kinking when mis-used they will shatter (wear safety glasses).

Better therefore to learn on a saw that has cheaper replaceable blades and progress to a handmade one when you feel ready.

NOTE: These handmade saws are not for beginners and are more suited to the experienced user. Our lifetime warranty does NOT apply to broken/damaged saw blades.
