2. I know I will get roasted for saying this but I will anyway. With all due respect, “jap” is offensive to some people.

Well you won t get roasted from me. It is a derogatory term.

“Jap is an English abbreviation of the word “Japanese”. Today it is generally regarded as an ethnic slur among Japanese minority populations in other countries, ...”

That being said, I think many times people use that term more to being lazy than to offend. I don t think he meant to offend anyone

I assumed that. That’s why I added the smiley face. It’s all good. Kumbaya and all that. :-)

That being said, the concept behind the pull saw is that the metal is under tension when it cuts, theoretically providing a better cut. But western saws don’t flex like the Japanese pulls saws do so to each his own. I try to use the pull saw but use both depending on which one I can find when I need it.
