I’ve been using Japanese saws for about 15 years on white oak and other American hardwoods. I’ll second the poor technique will break the teeth. They’re almost impossible to sharpen, but once you’ve got the handle, the replacement blades are about half the cost of the saw. I, too, don’t dare use a push saw anymore.
