    Comments about Z-Saw Dozuki 240mm with Replaceable Blade :

    Wow! Once I got used to a pull saw, I fell in love with this one. Another reviewer said he could split a pencil line, and that is true. It wants to cut in a straight line. It is easy to handle. Yes, some day I may need to replace the blade, but I can live with that.

    Comments about Z-Saw Dozuki 240mm with Replaceable Blade :

    I bought a smaller Japanese saw for a woodworking class, and realized (too late) that I bought the wrong one. I saw what the other students were using, and decided that if I want to get serious about dovetails that I needed the larger (and more expensive) saw. I'm glad I bought it! Works very well, except that the price was a little hard to take. But that's OK, I'm worth it.

    Comments about Z-Saw Dozuki 240mm with Replaceable Blade :

    One of the best pull saws that I have used. The saw is great for beginners and intermediate woodworkers. The saw is brittle, and will not handle the construction site. I will continue to use the tool for many years to come.

    This saw loves to follow scribe and knife marks, making it really nice for small dovetails. Cutting on the pull adds to the accuracy, in my opinion.

    Comments about Z-Saw Dozuki 240mm with Replaceable Blade :

    I tried this saw while on sale and . . . boy am I glad I did! I've used many backsaws (American and Japanese - cheap and expensive) and none performed any better than this saw. It is dead straight and tracked very well. The final cut is extremely smooth.

    Comments about Z-Saw Dozuki 240mm with Replaceable Blade :

    On opening the sheath on the saw, you immediately see the typical Japanese quality and attention to detail. The saw has been lovingly and carefully wrapped. Did some trail cuts and then compared them to my western saws and what a difference. Now I've got to come up with a new project that includes dovetails to really put it through it's paces.
