Kataba Saws
Due to their stronger blades, the backless Kataba saws are very robust and make deep, long or flush cuts in solid or glued wood or composite material. Like all Japanese saws, Kataba saws work on the pull stroke and are therefore especially energy-efficient. Kataba are offered in different blade lengths and tooth spacing for versatile use in cabinetmaking and carpentry.
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.
