Whelp, looks like it time for another hand tool shootout, and this time it is time for a little east meets west action. Dozuki vs Pistol Grip Western Saw. I have always just kind of used both, I really find that they both have an important place in my workflow, but I took a second to figure out whats what between the two.

This is really down to personal preference, and some of these opinions might just be facts about the ubiquitous Z saw and Veritas iterations of these tools. There are literally 1000s of models of Dozuki and Western style backsaw, and I would imagine that in the right condition and with the right practice any of these could be your favorite. I still had to put them through their paces, so, here it is.
