Dozuki Saws with replaceable blades feature the precision and durability of tensioned high carbon steel blades which are easily removed from their bamboo-wrapped handles for replacement when worn. The Dozuki "Z" Saw is one of the smoothest cutting saws youll ever use, ideal for tight fitting, precision joinery. The 26 TPI x .012" thick blade of this saw (the best selling saw in Japan) can be quickly changed by a simple tap on the back. Rigid back insures accurate cuts with the 240mm (9-1/2") x 60mm (2-3/8") blade. Overall length is 535mm (21").

This saw cuts really slowly compared to the rip teeth on my Gyokucho 311. It's roughly twice the effort and amount of strokes. However it's still a very efficient saw. This also makes the saw more controllable and a good choice for a beginner.
Although this has the same plate thickness as the 311, there is more set and the kerf is wider. Again, this benefits the novice as it will not bind as easily.
This saw does crosscut very cleanly as well. Because the spine doesn't extend all the way to the edge of the blade, you can make some longer cuts if you are in a pinch.
Overall I really like this saw and would recommend it to the novice or casual user. If you cut dovetails often you will want a better more efficient saw sooner than later
For under $30, I'm really happy with it. I think I will upgrade to a Gyokucho eventually though.
Don't get me wrong, I love this one. It's super sharp and makes easy, straight cuts with finesse. If the stock is small enough (1/4" give or take), I can hold it up, pull this saw across it and make the cut in one motion. I use it often for cuts on small pieces of trim and that sort of thing. My only complaint with it is that I've had a few teeth break off. It looks like they either laser cut the teeth out, or toasted the edge to harden them, because you can see some burn marks on the metal. I think whatever they did made it more brittle.
There is a slight learning curve with using Japanese saws. My advice is take it easy and let the saw do the work. It will!
It's also fun to say, so after making a cut with it, you may feel the need to say "Doooozukiiii" like a samurai.
Overall, I recommend this and I think it's a good first saw if you're trying out the Japanese pull saw style.
UPDATE 7/22/17: i actually did order it again. Sadly, the spine of the saw is unsupported which in turn, makes the blade itself flimsy. I was cutting a standard 2x4 and the teeth caught and bent the end of the saw. After carefully straightening it, I used it off and on for several weeks to follow, when finally the teeth started falling off. I chalked that up to the previous damage that happened. I gave up on that saw and tossed it and ordered a new one. The new saw arrived. I began using it right off the bat and my world seemed to be pretty perfect again. Then, the teeth on the new saw fell off (ripped off?) While I was using it. I have since ordered a new saw from a different company and it appears to be a better saw in my opinion.
I had a traditional mitre back saw, and thought that worked pretty well, but this is really that good.
And for the record, I paid my hard-earned for this one- I'm tired of getting to the bottom of positive reviews and finding it's been shilling.
