Top Customer Reviews
Although I'm perfectly happy with the Gyokucho saw and am glad to have it ... I have discovered something. The Gyokucho blade is 0.3 MM thick ... about 0.0116 inches thick ... whereas something like a Lie-Nielsen saw has a blade that is 0.02 inches thick. If one wishes to use a coping saw (as Bullar does in his videos) to cut out the waste I've found it difficult to properly handle the coping saw in the very slim slit the Japanese razor saw leaves. I've found it difficult to slip the coping saw blade down this thin slit and then to try and saw out at a nearly 90 degree to the slit. However in defense of the thin Japanese style saw blade ... I don't have any real experience to speak of using a coping saw. So the problem may be that I just lack facility in the use of the coping saw ... its clearly evident to me that I'm not able (at least yet) to handle it as neatly as does John Bullar in his videos. I'm using a Robert Larson coping saw. But in any case I'm happy with the Gyokucho saw ... and regardless, the cost difference between the Gyokucho saw and something like a Lie-Nielsen saw is so great that I think the thinner blade will do just fine ... $29 compared to $150. In any case I'm satisfied that the Gyokucho saw does a good job in cutting dovetails and I'm glad to have it.
The Gyokucho brand Razor Dozuki is an excellent saw. It cuts quite fast and makes dovetail cuts nicely. The rounded tip with teeth works well to start cuts in tight strokes, and if you need to cut a hole in the middle of the material. The "set" (which is the degree to which the teeth are spread apart to either side) works well to move waste material out of the cut but is thin enough that it doesn't adversely affect the "kerf" (the width of cut).
One of the greatest feature is that the blade can be easily changed out for another blade designed to mount this brand's handle. The backbone of the blade works well to stiffen the blade to prevent wobble and wandering cuts, and it is removable so it can be used on other blades as well. The blades lock into the handle very securely and stable.
Edit as of a couple months after purchase : I keep track and have now cut dovetails on 24 boxes with this saw and I have no desire for anything else. I've used it on several hardwoods of different thicknesses and haven't lost a tooth yet. I'm very pleased at how it hasn't lost any sharpness from the day I got it. One of those rare cases where inexpense isn't a comprimise.
