The only difference between these saws and their larger brothers is in the blade and handle length. Each has a 180mm-long blade with 0.5mm blade thickness and 16TPI tooth set for cross and end-grain cutting. Perfect for trialing Japanese saws or getting into a tight space.
All mini Japanese Saws come with the modern EVA-GRIP handle that moulds to user grips more comfortably over longer periods.
The RS-290 and 293 has a leading tooth set on the front of the blade to perform plunge cuts into timber.
