'Ryoba' is the Japanese word for double edge. The double sided Gikoh Ryoba pull Saw made by Kakuri lives up to its name. It's a double sided blade and features one side for ripping and the other side for crosscutting. The comfortable rattan handle features quick leaver action to change the replaceable blades.
You will not find a better designed handle on the market. The mechanism to hold the blade is unique in that it is streamlined to eliminate any change of the latch getting in the way of your material. Unlike some other saws on the market, the Kakuri Ryoba's Latch will always keep your blade straight and secure. The blade cuts easily and straight on both sides in many types of timber.

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.
Exceptions to plastic-free policy:
Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.
Breakage in shipping policy:
We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email email@example.com your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.
If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy.
Very well made and I love the protective cover with the hanging loop. The saw cuts very easily and leaves a very smooth surface, especially across the grain. The rip saw side is easy to use and cuts fast and smooth. I’ve had no trouble getting a straight cut. Much easier than with a western type push saw.
