Handy and compact
For mobile use or maximum control in detail work. With traditional wooden handle, light and breathable, or rubberised power grip, particularly robust and slip-proof. Curved tip also allows mid-panel cuts.
Kataba Super Hard
Preferred for cuts across the grain (trimming and shoulder cuts) in exotic hardwoods, as well as glued wood and particle boards. Wear-resistant teeth, even in hardwood (exotic woods), glued joints and synthetic resins.
Features of an original DICTUM Japanese saw - made in Japan!
Rust protection and reduced friction
thanks to cutting edge surface plating technology (inexpensive saws are usually only lacquered, leading to increased friction in the saw kerf!)
Backlash-free saw blade guidance
for excellent cutting precision
Stainless steel blade holder
rust protection, no varnish and increased bending stiffness of the back of the blade
Individually impulse-hardened tooth tips
for equal hardness of all teeth and thus long-lasting sharpness
Perfect deburring of the teeth
for reduced sawing forces
Uniform set of saw teeth and absolutely straight teeth
for drift-free sawing.
    Further details on the manufacturer



    Most of the products we sell as a trading company we produce ourselves, or we have them produced by selected and approved manufacturers.

    We have been making musical instrument products in this way under the brand name Herdim for more than 100 years.

    Our design department staff develops our products from scratch - from simple component drawings for hand tools to complex component assemblies for power tools. Our prototypes are extensively tested by our specialists, trainers, and frequently also selected customers. They are only put into mass production once they are found to have practical use.

    All materials such as cutting steels, cast materials or handle materials are carefully selected according to their intended use and then produced with a view to making them ergonomic.

    More complex manufacturing processes like casting, deep drawing, forging and lasering are carried out by specialised companies according to our specifications.

    The final quality control always takes place on site at our company.
