Project Information

A while ago, I ordered my first Japanese Dozuki Saw to realise I had bought a replacement blade only. Today, I took a piece of scrap Oak and made a simple handle to suit my hand. I cut a 2cm section of Galvanised Sheet Steel that I folded to form a spine and fitted it to the blade. I roughly shaped the handle with a Spokeshave and then cut a slot the full length stopping about 6mm to support the back and handle of the blade. I used a thin Veneer Saw that provided a tight fitting kerf for the blade including the spine. I drilled and pinned the blade securely. It works great :)

Thanks Tony the woodshaver :) I looked at buying a saw with the handle and blade complete and keeping the spare blade for later, but it cost more than twice that of the blade alone especially with international shipping. I'm now happy that I mistakenly bought a spare blade as the handle turned out great and works out as a very affordable option for me. I'm now looking at buying various Japanese blades and making my own handles :)
