A good example of a Japanese carpenter's "azebiki" hand saw, with maker's engraving in the hilt, and old wood handle. This saw has several teeth missing, and is best for display or collection. The curved, double blades are for beginning cuts in the middle of panels or boards, as opposed to starting at edges. These are of course more rare and hard to find, compared to typical straight saws. This saw is of a larger, carpenter's size; with a saw kerf of about 2mm.
