5 Japanese Woodworking: A Gift Guide for Beginners

Saws (Nokogiri) $45-$60

Two or three replaceable blade saws will get you by for a long time. From top to bottom:
Ryoba – Two blades, one saw. For timber/carpentry size work, go for sizes up around 270 – 300mm, for furniture size work, 180 – 240mm.
Dozuki – For super fine cuts. If you’ve never used one before, you will be amazed at how fine. 240mm is good.
Kataha Yokobiki – General purpose saw. 240mm is a good here as well.
