Hishika Japanese Super-Fine Saws
Hishika is one of the premier saw makers in Japan. Besides making the traditional Japanese saws, Hishika makes a line of small hand-saws, primarily for modeling, but also useful for very fine cabinetwork, that are a cross between western saws and Japanese saws. They look a lot like the turned handle Disston saws of old, but they have much thinner saw plates and cut on the pull stroke. These saws are so sharp that for soft woods, like balsa, they actually work better on the push stroke. RC modelers find these saws particuarly useful, as well as anyone doing very fine cuts on thin stock. These saws cut on the pull stroke, but for balsa wood we find that they actually work better cutting on the push stroke.
