I bought the GYOKUCHO - Ryoba Saw 270mm No. 615 with Replaceable Blade when it was SD few months ago. I haven't used it yet, but would I need this too? What is difference between the two?

Thanks

Depends on what you're trying to do.
This is a back saw for doing dovetails, tenons type joinery and not through cuts typically.

Having said that, when I took classes with Jay Van Arsdale, he told us to just learn with a Ryoba for our joinery and a Dozuki is not necessary.

Erm.....then probably not. You can use any saw for any saw task, just some are more appropriate if you possess the skillset to utilize them or your work needs the particular detail of the tool.

If your goal is dovetails, you're good to start with what you have. There's plenty of videos of people cutting dovetails with saws not meant for the work (hacksaws, trim saws, etc.) so the exact right saw isn't necessary. Joinery has more to do with practice, experience, and technique than tools. You can't buy the first three, and buying another saw won't get you there without them.

My advice? Use the one you have some, learn to cut straight on the mark you're trying to hit, then decide if it isn't 'cutting' it for you....starting with one saw removes the unnecessary step of trying to figure out which tool to use when what you need is practice.

The Ryoba is has no spine which makes it great for flush cuts and through cuts.

The spine on the back of the Dozuki makes it stiffer, better for shallow joinery cuts.

This saw can do plunge cuts which a ryoba cant.
You can see this master doing it at 4:10 min mark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GgvUY7mALY

The saw he is using is better, its available for $29 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...BE57&psc=1

I bought the last SD deal on the ryoba from Woodcraft. Its phenomenal.

Just wanted to add that no other tool works as good for plunge cuts.
Second the saw in my link is also from this same Japanese company Razorsaw.

At first I thought you were comparing a Japanese handsaw to a circular saw. Wink. Thanks for the info on another Japanese saw I didn't know I needed.

Also reminded me that I need to create a nice circular saw guide. Smilie

180MM vs 240MM. Either handle is available. Blades are from the same manufacturer.

Drill a starting hole and use a jig saw to accomplish the same thing

No. Nowhere near the same. Jigsaw has a huge kerf and no way can you cut straight or accurate because of vibration and unsupported blade. You can do it with a coping saw but the same inaccuracy.

Band saw then? But for thin material up to 3/4" my jig saw haven't had any issue. The kerf hasn't really been an issue as usually there's 1 side that you throwing out so as long as you let the blade thickness be on that side it shouldn't matter.
