About

This saw has quite big teeth for its size, giving it a certain amount of speed but also making it easier to work with in soft or green woods rather than very hard timbers. 

Useful for hogging the corners off of carving blanks that would otherwise take a while to rasp off and for putting in stop cuts for a knife to work to.

Miki is a city in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. The town developed around a castle built by Bessho Naganori in 1468 and captured by the Hideyoshi clan in 1580. Subsequently, the economy centred on hardware manufacture, and, during the Meiji period (1868–1912), the city was a major supplier of hardware in Japan. After World War II the industry declined, and Miki was restructured as a satellite city of metropolitan Kōbe
