I purchased this saw 2 years ago and have grown to love the saw more and more as time goes by.
1. First you need to learn how to use the saw effectively. The blades need to be seated carefully, and will be very difficult to place early on. I suggest wearing a light machinist glove on your given hand before use. Next you need to understand how best to guide the blade to ensure a clean angle of cut. I use a carpenter's triangle(American style) to angle the blade. These are pull saws, so gently score a line to help guide your blade after marking your cut. Brace the piece to cut and don't be afraid to stand over it or kneel to get a good pull. I find that crossing my body with the pull makes the cuts smooth and steady. Practice on cheap wood before moving to other wood.
2. Buy more blades. The first two Tajima blades are good, but as you delve into other projects with the saw, buy other blades to deal with other woods. Make sure to practice with 3-8 good...
The saw blades are well made, sharp and do not need honing to cut straight. The handle has a ribbed wrap that aids your grip. The case is well made from heavy canvas. The whole set has a feel of quality and appears that it will last many years. Traditional cases have a cloth tie that was elegant before Velcro and now is just a pain. This one uses Velcro, very nice.
The case was my primary reason for buying this set. If you are not used to using pull saws they have a couple of drawbacks. The teeth are hardened so they stay sharp but that makes them brittle and if you throw them in a tool box with other tools the teeth can get knocked off. The teeth are also very sharp so they cut fast but that makes them difficult to carry a bare blade around without cutting yourself. The canvas case addresses both problems very nicely.
Bonus: I still had a 13 tpi blade from Bakuma so I tried it in the Tajima handle and it fits nicely. I now have a compact 3 blade...
This is a great set and having 2 different blades with room for more in the case. I have tried the cheaper ones that are one piece and this saw by far blows them away in so many ways. 1. they come apart and fit into your box. 2. the blades are protected by the case and other tools in your box are not getting scratched up. 3. blades are replaceable without having to buy the whole handle again. 4. super sharp quality steel, protective coating for smooth cutting, no kinking the blade when pushing. The reason I did not give 5 stars was for the case / handle? I don't know what Tajima was thinking, did they look in the box and thought something was missing, so they threw the handle in at the last second? By looking at the picture on the page you would think the handle is going to fit nicely in the case. It does NOT, it sticks out and there is no place for it. It slides out of either side if you don't grab the handle when picking up the case. I work with cabinets all day and would not...
