These Dozuki nokogiri saws are designed for fast, accurate cuts. Since the rigid spline is not full length of the blade, the interchangeable blades can easily make long, accurate cuts in thin material. The blade is only 0.012˝ thick and the teeth are impulse hardened for extended wear. A unique feature of the 6˝ Beading Saw is the special "woodpecker" tooth at the end of the blade, which allows the user to start a cut in mid-panel. The blade thickness is 0.012˝ and kerf is 0.018˝. The teeth are impulse hardened for extended wear. The handle is wrapped with rattan. The blade length is 6˝, overall length is 14½˝, and teeth/inch is 21. Replacement Blade available #156741.
