Storing Japanese Pull Saws

How do you store your pull saws? I hate drilling holes in handles and they’re too long for the drawers I have available, Appreciate any thoughts and / or pictures. Thanks, John

I store mine this way.




When I bought my dovetail saw from Stan Covington, he recommended hanging the saws by the handle. He said it helps keep the saw straight. He also said that he personally stores his saws the way I do. If you want to hang by the handle but don't want to drill the handle (I agree), you could hang it from a piece of cord with a slip knot tied on the end.

Thanks for that - very similar to how I store my chisels, so will go that direction and make it today.

This is how Toshio Odate does it.  But his workshop seems to be pretty uncluttered.

Mine are stored in a rollaway cabinet drawer with the original sleeve over the blade, except for my most-used razor saw, which just lays on top of the others, ready to be used.
Wood is good.

Never head of him before. I'll have to check out his work.  

I'd like to see that big saw off his left shoulder in action.

I think Wilbur Pan took pictures of an event done last year in New York where that timber saw was used. A rip saw. His web site is https://giantcypress.net/

He was a frequent contributor to Popular Woodworking.  Pretty well-known Japanese woodworker who emigrated to the US.  Formally trained in Japan.  Just google him.  I took a couple of classes from him.  I don't know if he's active anymore.  He turned 90 in July.  He's on Facebook and has his own website as well.
