The reason I did not give 5 stars was for the case / handle? I don't know what Tajima was thinking, did they look in the box and thought something was missing, so they threw the handle in at the last second? By looking at the picture on the page you would think the handle is going to fit nicely in the case. It does NOT, it sticks out and there is no place for it. It slides out of either side if you don't grab the handle when picking up the case. I work with cabinets all day and would not want this to slip out and damage something from the metal end. So I took an old nail apron and cut off the canvas tie and made 2 ties about 8" long and used a sewing awl to tack it in the middle. Now I just tie the handle in the case and one less worry.
The case was my primary reason for buying this set. If you are not used to using pull saws they have a couple of drawbacks. The teeth are hardened so they stay sharp but that makes them brittle and if you throw them in a tool box with other tools the teeth can get knocked off. The teeth are also very sharp so they cut fast but that makes them difficult to carry a bare blade around without cutting yourself. The canvas case addresses both problems very nicely.
I still had a 13 tpi blade from Bakuma so I tried it in the Tajima handle and it fits nicely. I now have a compact 3 blade set and more than one source for replacement blades.
The handle is about an inch longer then the case. Not a serious problem... just makes me wonder.
I highly recommend this great saw set from Tajima.
1. First you need to learn how to use the saw effectively. The blades need to be seated carefully, and will be very difficult to place early on. I suggest wearing a light machinist glove on your given hand before use. Next you need to understand how best to guide the blade to ensure a clean angle of cut. I use a carpenter's triangle(American style) to angle the blade. These are pull saws, so gently score a line to help guide your blade after marking your cut. Brace the piece to cut and don't be afraid to stand over it or kneel to get a good pull. I find that crossing my body with the pull makes the cuts smooth and steady. Practice on cheap wood before moving to other wood.
2. Buy more blades. The first two Tajima blades are good, but as you delve into other projects with the saw, buy other blades to deal with other woods. Make sure to practice with 3-8 good cuts on scrap to understand the different pull and the control you'll have with the cuts.
3. The pull saws work fast. I've had wood my jig saw takes a good minute on cut like soft butter under the pull of the Tajima. pull with long confident cuts and teach your body the muscle memory needed to make a clean line, cut at angles or the subtle changes as you approach the end of a cut to avoid break out or damage.
the kit is a small, light but very effective cutter that can perform an incredible variety of cutting tasks from rough sawing through a 2x6 to
skivving off a 32nd of an inch of end grain. This is the very first saw that goes into my personal bag that I take to every job site.
One thing you have to learn with this saw is to NOT apply to much pressure, the blades are so sharp you will bog down immediately.
Just keep it hidden from family members - I found out that mine had been used to trim some tree branches, with no harm to the saw - but I needed to clean out some sap from the blade :D
