Some Japanese saws fail to live up to expectations in the hands of Western woodworkers because the tools aren’t used properly or they’re used in woods that are unsuitable for that saw’s tooth design.

The most frequent result of this mishandling is broken saw teeth or a bent blade. However, for the last 18 months, I’ve been using a Japanese saw that seems as robust and versatile as any Western handsaw in my tool chest.
