Make sure that the teeth (blades) are sharp
 Blades on the front and back of the teeth should be equal, and the lengthof each tooth should be equal to the rest.

should be near the center. (withoutsolid handle) The thickness of Japanese saws are produced by shaving and finishing thesurface with a Japanese draw knife called a "Sen". Though nowadays a magnet grinder is used, hence thin Japanese saws canbe mass produced.
How to use
"Rip saws" are drawn parallel to the wood grain, and "Cross cut saws" aredrawn perpendicular to the wood grain.1.When initially drawing the nokogiri (saw), raise the handle a bit and placeyour left thumb nail (for right handed users) by the edge of your cuttingmarker, and slowly draw the saw. Begin with small draws/strokes andwhen when more of the saw is set into the wood, one can inscrease theirdraws. The wood is cut when the saw is drawn, so do not apply too muchstrength when pulling. Allow the weight of the saw be the only pressureapplied onto the wood. Also make sure that the object which is been sawnis firmly held down.2.Depending on the type of wood is been sawed, the angle of the saw ischanged. For most cuts, holding the saw at a 30°(degree) angle is best. If wood being sawn is tough, the sawing angle is best raised toapproximately 45°. If the material to be sawn to very thin or soft wood,then angling the saw at an angle less than 30° would be best.3.

 The edge of the Sel acts to reduce the amount of friction bewteenthe wood and the saw, and to allow unwanted excess wood(sawdust) to escape. (Fig. A & B)Increase the angle of the sel when sawing wet or not dried lumber.Decrease the sel angle when sawing hardwood timber, dried lumber,fresh lumber or composite materialsIf the angle of the sel differs as in fig. C, the saw cut will slightly curvetowards the more angled sels.If the length of the sel differs as in fig. D, the saw cut will slightlycurve towards the shorter sels. Depending whether softwood, hardwood, dampwood, or compositewood is being sawed, one can change the angle of the saw blade selto improve the cutting quality.
 To extend the life of your Japanese saw"Nokogiri", the key is to avoid your saw fromrusting. If you saw gets wet, simply dry itand apply oil onto the surface. Simplehousehold vegetable oil can also be used.Apply by wiping an oiled cloth on to thesurface of the saw.
