I've been buying products from LMI since the 70's, long before the web was around. 
The selection and quality has always been superior, and the pricing reasonable! There are other places I can go to buy materials, but none that I trust as much...

Japanese Luthiers Saws

From top: Japanese dozuki saw, Japanese ryoba saw,
double edged razorsaw, and double edged flush cut razorsaw

All the Japanese luthiers saws featured here are pull saws – they cut only on the pull stroke. Cutting on the pull stroke tends to keep the blade straighter which in turn allows for a thinner blade. A thinner blade results in less friction and a fast and controlled cut with a high degree of accuracy.
