The Hibiki is an exceptional woodworking saw in the ryoba format (double sided, pull-cut) for both ripping and cutting and specific angles.
It can be useful where you need to make a specific cut to match the angle of the spoon you are creating. This is difficult to do with normal teeth so the Hibiki would be the saw for the job.
The blade is chrome-plated and taper ground. The top side of the blade (ripping side) is for productive rip cuts. The bottom side (crosscutting) is for fast, silky smooth cuts.
The saw’s teeth are razor sharp blade and spaced for moving quickly through even the hardest of wood. Silky impulse-hardens the teeth on both sides of the blade, so they'll remain sharp much longer than conventional blades.
The aluminum alloy handle is rubber-gripped and coated for comfort and secure handling. Woodworking craftsmen appreciate the exceptional design, strength, balance and superior finish quality of this fine saw. The length of the handle and blade in the open position is 19-1/4"(490mm) and has a kerf of 0.9mm.
The Hibiki comes with a snap-lock storage sheath for protection of the teeth and blade.
