This Japanese trim saw is a smaller keyhole saw with a very fine toothed narrow blade. It can be used as a keyhole saw or for any fine detail trimming.
Originally designed to trim bonsai trees this bonsai saw has a very thin and narrow blade that is perfect for cutting precise curves. For boatbuilding, this saw is handy for cutting hatch openings, trimming cockpits and reaching tight places.
Japanese saws cut on the pull stroke using thin flexible blades that cut faster and more accurately than European push-stroke saws.
The blade is 115 mm (4½″) long and the overall length is 225 mm (9″).
