Japanese saws (FWIW) ()

I once tried to pull a zona saw by switching the blade around and quickly found out that the orientation of cutting teeth at zero rake doesn't really work pulling.

I guess you can't get the same orientation and pressure pulling a saw and the teeth really need that hook to get the appropriate bite.
