I recently acquired a Japanese pull saw that I have used a little. They take some “getting used to”. However, I predict that after I spend some time with it, I will prefer it to a Western push saw. It sure is sharp and the kerf is thin. I have never used a saw that cut through hard wood so fast. I can cut through a 1/2” oak dowel in 2 strokes.
