Bocote Japanese Pull Saw Handle by Paul Mattlin

Paul sent us these images of a bocote handle he added to a Japanese pull saw.

This type of saw is used in traditional Japanese woodworking and carpentry. These saws cut very quickly and easily on the pull stroke unlike European saws that cut on the push stroke. They also allow for thinner blades that cut more efficiently and leave a narrower kerf.

Pretty neat, huh?!

Thanks Paul for the great pictures!
