All of the Japanese saws made in Japan for Bridge City feature blades with a golden hue. This color appears during the heat treating process and is normally ground off to reveal the traditional silver color of steel. We insist that it not be ground off so you know the blades are properly tempered.
Japanese Saws cut on the pull stroke, and because the blades are under tension during cutting, the blade thickness can be much thinner than European heritage saws. A thinner blade means less material is removed and requires much less effort to use. With a little practice, your cuts will look like they were made with a laser.
In soft woods, Japanese Saws cut so efficiently, it is hard to believe it is made by hand. In hard woods, as in all hand sawing operations, let the saw progress at its pace and apply very little downward pressure. Cuts are started at the back of your stock as you pull forward. Aggressive and impatient users will invariably break teeth on these saws which defeats the purpose of owning a precision saw.
