Niwaki Moku Folding Saw

Ibara-me teeth angled to cut both along and across the grain. As with all Japanese saws, this cuts on the pull stroke, therefore there is less pressure put on the cut resulting in a swift, clean cut.

Care and Instructions for use:
Japanese pruning saws are brilliant to use, but it's good to be aware that the blades are more fragile than traditional western saws and incorrect use can result in damage.
Niwaki recommend using a smooth, gentle sawing action, doing the cutting on the pull, and gliding back on the push.
Don’t let the weight of the branch pinch/catch the blade and don’t twist the blade while sawing.
Do not use a small saw for a large job. Treat 1/3 of the length of the blade as the absolute maximum sensible cutting diameter. A 12" blade will happily cut a 1/2" branch, providing the branch is rigid - but most 1/2" branches move around a lot, and don’t allow for accurate sawing. Use Secateurs or Loppers instead.
Blades can snap through misuse and poor handling, please be aware this is not covered under the warranty.
