Product Overview
The dozuki, a traditional Japanese saw, is designed for fine cuts in softer woods. Often called a dovetail saw, a dozuki produces a narrow, precise kerf with its thin blade, and fine teeth.

 

The typically thicker blade of a European saw is set to cut on the push stroke allowing the carpenter to put their weight into the task. The much thinner blade of the dozuki has teeth set to cut on the pull stroke keeping the flexible blade straight as it is drawn through the narrow kerf. This makes the dozuki ideal for fine dovetail and box joint cuts.

How to use a Dozuki

Step 1

  • A dozuki cuts only in one direction -- on the pull stroke. You can push the saw through your workpiece, but only apply pressure when pulling towards you.
  • Begin your cut by placing the bottom edge of the saw on the corner edge of the workpiece. Make sure the saw blade lines up with any markings you made on the workpiece for this cut.
  • Gently pull the saw down and towards you.
  • Double-check that you're cutting in the right location, just to make sure the saw didn't wander off.
  • Repeat the above steps for a couple of more pulls, ensuring you take the saw out of the workpiece after each pull. This will allow you to start a neat and precise cut into your workpiece.

 

Step 2

  • Once you've started the cut, you can proceed to delve into the workpiece as deep as necessary.
  • For these cuts, you can pass the saw through the workpiece in both directions, but just make sure to apply downward pressure only on the pull stroke.
  • After you're satisfied with the depth of cut, it will look something like the second picture on this step.

 

Step 3

  • The depth of the notch was not critical for the purpose of this guide. However, you should use a ruler to mark where to cut out the notch.
  • First reposition the workpiece so that able to cut out the notch.
  • Make the first mark on the workpiece by aligning the ruler against the depth of the cut, then drawing a straight line to the top of the workpiece.
  • Draw another line to the across the top of the workpiece. This will be the line you'll follow with the dozuki in order to create the notch in the workpiece.
