[Video] How to cut a material with a hand saw, part 1

I will post videos on how to use carving tools and other useful topics in regards with netsuke carving.

The first video that I have posted (for beginners) is how to cut a material with a hand saw. In this video, my father as a pro gives an instruction, and I as a pure beginner follows it.

The saw used in this video is no longer available, but a similar saw like the following can be used instead: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005WGB830/ref=nosim?tag=koryuen99599-20

Our conversations are in Japanese, but I hope I can add English subtitles in the future.


My mother happens to join us briefly in the end!

I will also post videos on how to use files and hidari-ba carving knives soon. (I’m sorry that some videos including this one are not in good quality.)

A panoramic photo of my father’s studio has been posted on Koryuen’s Backyard, so please click here and take a look!
