Japanese saws from Rutlands?

Postby finalboss » Tue Jul 29, 2014 3:42 pm

Hello everyone, this is my first time on this forum and any forum ever actually. I reckon Its really important to get a wide spectrum of opinions and ideas on this universal calling we have here and besides there is many ways to skin a cat.

Firstly, has anyone bought the set of 3 Japanese saws from Rutlands? I don't like the idea of the plastic handles does this matter am i being precious? Why does Rutlands not disclose the maker of their japanese saws? Apparently its company policy to not disclose the actual manufacturer of their saws? What is the reasoning behind this? Is it better to go for a better known 'known' maker like this one:

Gyohucho, ice bear etc.

Any ideas or advice would be most kind of you to share with me.

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. I've no experience of the Rutland saws but I would suggest getting a cheap one to start with to see how you get on with it as the technique is quite different and I lost several teeth on my first saw until I got the hang of it.

Thanks for your reply, I thought that 3 for £50 was pretty cheap, otherwise don't you have to ship them in from Japan?
