    Quizzical Pursuit - The Architecture Puzzler

    by Dave Guadagni

    Answer for Last Week's Puzzler

    What is the fundamental difference between a Japanese handsaw and a typical American handsaw?

    Answer: 

    The Japanese saw cuts on the pull stroke while the American saw cuts on the push stroke.

    This was referred to in an ArchitectureWeek story last month: Hammers, Saws, and Laser Levels - The National Hardware Show, by Michael J. Bordenaro.
