About

This SunChild Japanese pull-saw with universal teeth is an excellent all-purpose woodworking saw. Ideal for fine work such as dovetails and tenons.

The saw features a metal spine back which gives the saw very accurate straight cuts. It's good for both soft & hard woods, for plywood, acrylics, & laminate board too. The teeth are impulse hardened which makes the blade tough & durable for prolonged life & wear.

The blade also can be removed when/if needed to be replaced. The handle is made of wood, wrapped in traditional Rattan for a comfortable grip.

 

Story

Gyokucho invented the first replaceable blade Japanese saw back in the 1970’s, and still lead the industry in terms of quality and innovation.

The blades receive a special surface treatment called electroless nickel plating. The plating produces a very smooth surface that resists corrosion and the adhesion of tree resins as well as providing a reflective surface that can be used to accurately align the cut. 

The teeth of Gyokucho saws are hardened by a highly developed version of impulse hardening – only the very tip of the tooth is exposed to exactly 27.12MHz for between 3 and 5 milliseconds, the resulting shockwave case hardens the outside of the tip of the tooth to well over RC67 (harder than a file) while leaving the interior soft for maximum strength. 

With careful daily use in a professional workshop, we would typically expect a Gyokucho saw blade to last between 5 and 7 years.
