This product is a Japanese flush cut saw. It is perfect for cutting dowels down to match its surrounding surface.
TIPS ON HOW TO USE Although the point of the flush cut saw is to cut off the dowel so that it is at level with its surrounding surface, placing a slightly thick piece of paper beneath the cutting area will make sure that the surrounding surface does not get damaged. This can be done by creating a hole slightly larger than the diameter of the dowel in the paper, such as business cards, and sawing from top of it. When using a dowel, you can use glue to put it into place, but once it is placed properly, make sure to remove the excess glue with a small wet paintbrush, because once it gets dry, it is not only hard to remove, but also may interfere with the cutting process.
BLADE FOR HARDWOOD AND SOFTWOOD You can easily cut oak, sandalwood, ebony, mahogany, maple, walnut and pine by robust blade for hardwood. The blade for softwood can be used for white cedar, Japanese cedar, larch, paulownia wood and so on.
