I want to try one of these Japanese saws. I need it to cut door trim etc. when installing flooring and such. Rockler has one but I'd rather have an offset handle to save my knuckels.

Do you guys have any recomendations? I don't want any junk.
Thanks.

Paul, I think that you will be impressed with the saw. I have used them for years in cabinetry. It is a learning process and you have to take it slower and easier. Let the tool do the work. If you take the American way (Get'er done) you will just get PO'd and ruin the tool. It takes some practice and the appreciation of woodworking.

I use a cheapo Stanley model like that for under cutting door trim for tile floors. Make sure what ever you get you can cut both ways with it, the Stanley allows you to swing the blade around by releasing a spring loaded pin.

The Japanese saw cuts only on the pull stroke and, generally, has no kerf. It is designed for fine cuts.
